Boating and seafaring is a universal hobby. Fixed-tonnage pleasure boats have paved the way to classic yachting in the early 19th century. Traditional boats have deep roots in local seafaring. Every sea community has developed their own design under influence from the boats used by their neighbours, but have kept certain common properties as some sort of trademark
Our scope covers all classic-style cruise boats. We use the term classic cruise boats to refer to both small and practical boats with a rugged yet elegant design, and to larger yachts. The common properties of our boats is seaworthiness and ease of use, making them into what we call good boats that are both pleasurable and safe to cruise. This is a passion that we follow relentlessly.
Until the modern era devastated all aspects of sea life, all vessels from fishing boats to cruise or service boats used the wind as their primary source of power. Sail and oars were an inseparable whole: A boat could not do without the infinite power of the wind at open sea, while all sail boats required oars to manoeuvre in small spaces or when entering and exiting ports. François Vivier
Many of our boats harness the undeniable warmth of wood, while being light enough to carry on trailers or the roof of a car. There is no need for a fully-equipped port as the boats can be lowered to sea and removed from practically any coastline.
The small size means the boat can be constructed even in a mid-sized garage, thus portraying the skill and handiwork of the owner. In fact, these boats are used for educational purposes in training associations and schools.
