Bespoke Kayak

The kayaks are monocoque construction, with no internal ribs or beams apart from the bulkheads.

Built around formers out of thin yet strong wood, they are then sheathed inside and out in epoxy and fibreglass or carbon fibre, to make a light yet immensely strong and rigid shell.

I can build ultra-lightweight kayaks for exercise or racing, or very strong for heavy expedition use or rock gardening.

All kayaks are hand-built by me, and I am happy to send you progress reports with photos as your kayak takes shape

I like to deliver kayaks myself, to ensure that they arrive in perfect condition and to personally see the joy they bring.

I do not normally wrap the kayaks in anything, after all they are made to withstand the rigours of rough seas.
