MAGIC TIMES is a wooden boat for fishing and hiking which combines comfort of stability and aisance of displacement vieu its light weight it can be easily transported everywhere.
Bedard Yacht Design’s Ozona X Nesting Pram evolved from the hugely popular Ozona Pram and a significant demand from cruisers for a nesting dinghy, slightly larger.
The F1830 is the newest BYD design and the tandem version of the F1430 Sit On Top kayak. It is a second generation boat, with an optimized hull and simplified kit. This boat will easily carry 2 adults and a big cooler, or 2 adults and a couple of small kids.
Kingfisher’s shape was inspired by famous Chestnut Prospector. Hull width of 93cm, flat bottom and slim shape gives good stability and maneuverability. It is designed for crew of 2 with additional equipment (tents, fishing rods…).
Sea Otter was designed for an adult night school class I was teaching in boat building, in which nine boats were built at one time. Actually the principles of construction used in Sea Otter are the same as used in many of our larger designs.
“Goldfish” is the slightly smaller version of our “Happy Hour” fishing kayak. Splicing of plywood sheets is not required as is the case with “Happy Hour”. All parts of the boat fit within the length of a standard sheet of 1/4″ (6mm) exterior grade plywood 8′x4′ (2.4x1.2m).
