Designer Andrew Simpson feels at home on the water in Sydney, Australia, and as a way to make the aquatic landscape more accessible to citizens, he co-founded the Balmain Boat Company.
The original Balmain Boat is a vessel very worthy of consideration. The reason for its creation is to offer the average person the means to build his own rowboat. The watercraft is sold in a box complete with its various components, and by means of a meticulous set of instructions, anyone can put together the little paddler regardless of his level of experience as a handyman -- or lack thereof.
Fostering a sense of a craftsman's pride and familial bonding, the construction of a Balmain Boat affords the gift of many simple pleasures and an appreciation of the nature.
