While water burials are no longer as common as they once were in the past when bodies of heroes were cast adrift in specially crafted rafts, the Boat Coffin may encourage more people to embrace the almost forgotten ritual. A modern version of the traditional raft, the Boat Coffin comes complete with a stainless steel motor and keel. Other than those distinctive ship details, the Boat Coffin is shaped just like a classic casket.
Conceived and created by Chilean-born, New York-based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz, the Boat Coffin is made out of wood, fabric, acrylic paint and polyurethane. Made for sea captains and water lovers alike, this casket sets the tone for a memorable funeral.
