The story behind Ar Vag foldable boat design began when this industrial designer met a passionate fisherman on the sunny shores of Lake Geneva. That’s when Thibault Penven decided to design a practical boat that you can literary carry anywhere with you, a foldable boat with oars for a short tour or a fishing trip. This boat is faster than inflatable dinghy and less cumbersome than a fixed attachment.
Ar Vag is basically a small boat in kit which you can carry as backpack, it fits like a tent and you can store it easily. The hull of this boat is constructed from a series of fiberglass sheets covered with heat welded plastic tarpaulin. To set sail, you can simply unfold the thin, light hull of the boat and rigidify it with the central bench that functions as keystone to form the final shape and ready to use.
