High performance kayaks, canoes and other small boats. Crafted individually in the USA.
The kayak is a symbol of the cultural connection to both the surrounding land and water. This is what we’re known for: high-performance custom kayaks. From Greenland-style rolling kayaks to touring, racing and for kids.
We have designed a few kayaks ourselves but most come from respected designers. We now have a formal agreement with the Swedish designer Björn Thomasson (Sweden) to build all of his designs. He has been designing boats of all sizes since the mid-1970′s and has become one of the most respected names in the industry. He also designs kayaks for the commercial companies Seabird Designs (Norway) and Nordic Kayaks (Sweden). More information on all the designs we sell.
Home builders can now buy kayak and canoe plans, stitch & glue plywood kits and the same carbon fiber and wood components that we make for our kayaks and canoes. Available in our On-Line Store.
We can build other small row and sail boats such as dinghies to small catamarans.
Wooden core fiberglass boats actually require little yearly maintenance. Here is information on basic maintenance and repair.
