The popular “Black Pearl” designed by Björn Thomasson is finally available in stitch & glue construction for home builders. There are six standard sizes designed for virtually all paddlers.
In coordination with Björn Thomasson and Petruskajak of Sweden, we have taken the strip built Black Pearl design and using our advanced naval architecture and CAD programs have adapted it to true stitch & glue construction using 3mm and 4mm okoume marine plywood. Kits are offered with full-size panel developments. The kits feature full bulkheads and a stacked plywood coaming for easy construction. Pre-cut plywood kits from Chesapeake Light Craft are available for all sizes.
