This Beautiful Monocoque Paddle Canoe Will Make You a Morning Person
There’s no better case for waking up early than a sunrise observed from the middle of a lake. And now, thanks to yacht visionary Federico Santa Maria and the industrial design team at BorromeoDeSilva, there’s no vessel better suited to observing the quiet beauty of daybreak.
Copper wire woven into this canoe’s carbon-fibre and teak wood hull shimmers in the sun’s glow, while oars can be tucked into slots next to its back fins — an elegant homage to vintage Cadillacs. While currently a one-off design, there are hints that a production run is in the design’s near future.
