Artisanal construction of wooden kayaks and Greenlandic paddles

The grain and whimsical tones of the wood give the kayaks an aesthetic that is difficult to find in kayaks built with other materials.

But behind this beautiful appearance there is a whole world of modern joinery and applied technology that, combined, allow us to create strong, rigid, light and highly reliable wooden kayaks.

Our Greenland paddles have been evolved to become the best of the most useful and effective tool for sea kayaking. The lamination of various woods such as Brazilian cedar and paulownia give our blades strength, lightness and flexibility.

Natural wood as a construction material gives the paddles a beauty that only wood can transmit.

About me

After researching different construction systems, woods and materials applicable to it, Nautilus can currently build any wooden kayak model you choose and customize it without affecting its hydrodynamics or behavior.

My Greenlandic paddles are a reinterpretation and adaptation of ancestral Inuit paddles. With the advantage of current woods and cutting-edge materials, I have created a wide catalog of Greenlandic paddle models and options where you will undoubtedly find your completely personalized paddle.

A professional carpenter and a lover of sea kayaking, I finally fulfilled my dream of uniting my two passions. Contact me and tell me your needs.

Hybrid paddle

The main difference with respect to a traditional paddle is found in the length of the pole, equivalent to the paddler’s grip with a European paddle. Much appreciated by paddlers who do not want to give up a «European» paleo technique.
