Expedition Rowboat

Expedition Rowboat

This is our flagship model. It is seaworthy, fast (can sprint over 13 km/hr), comfortable and is capable of carrying supplies for a month-long unsupported expedition. The decked hull keeps water out in rough weather and it tracks well in all conditions. This is the vessel that we used in a 7000-km-journey from the north of Scotland to Syria. These boats can be joined in catamaran formation creating a stable platform in the middle (catamaran kits will be available separately). Find out more.

Bumblebee Sailboat

Bumblebee Sailboat

The Bumblebee is made for the pint-sized mariner. There are currently no other sailboats for kids aged 2-5, yet this is the period when children are highly receptive to new experiences Our goal was not only to develop a sailboat suitable for young children, but also to develop a system that appeals to their sense of learning. Tots do not respond to commands or instructions, and instead learn through trial and error through the process of play. Find out more.
