The story of Nova Craft Canoe began in 1970, when the company started producing a limited selection of fiberglass canoes in a small-scale, garage-based operation near London, Ontario, Canada. As the years passed and the reputation of their quality designs and workmanship quickly spread, the company naturally began to grow. As a result of that growth, Nova Craft has steadily responded to customer requests for more model choices and material options. Nova Craft is proud to say their model selection has progressed from a handful of specialized designs to a full catalog with something to offer every paddler.
Today, Nova Craft still offers fiberglass but have also adopted Aramid, Spectra, Carbon Fibre, Royalex, Royalex Plus and Polyethylene. With the use of these new materials came innovations in new manufacturing techniques including composite infusion, thermoplastic vacuum forming and rotational molding. With a comprehensive catalog and ever increasing brand awareness, demand for Nova Craft canoes has spread over a wide geographic area. To allow for broader access to their canoes, they now have a dealer network that reaches throughout Canada, the United States and parts of Europe. The scope may have expanded since 1970 but the Nova Craft core focus remains simple - build quality canoes that give paddlers special experiences in the great outdoors. It's all about making a connection to nature and wild places, be it solo or with friends and family.
