Collection: Wood Kayak

Welcome to Wooden Boat USA, where we bring you the exquisite beauty of cedar and hardwoods transformed into handmade, custom kayaks that are a dream come true for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. Our kayaks are more than just vessels; they are a reflection of our passion for craftsmanship and the artistry that goes into creating exceptional watercraft.

Picture yourself gliding through the water in one of our kayaks, crafted with meticulous attention to detail. We start with hand-joined red cedar strips, carefully selected for their stunning clarity, and join them together to create a strong and durable hull. To ensure longevity and strength, each kayak is coated with a layer of fiberglass epoxy resin, adding tensile strength and abrasion resistance. The result is a finish that is not only stylish and amazing to look at but also enhances the kayak's performance on the water.

When you choose Wooden Boat USA, you're not just selecting a kayak; you're immersing yourself in the timeless beauty and craftsmanship that comes from over 500 hours of build time. We take pride in preserving the traditional plank-on-frame construction method, which not only ensures nautical precision but also showcases the stunning beauty that can only be achieved through meticulous craftsmanship.
