Ar Vag


A folding rowboat that you can carry

Ar Vag (meaning boat in Breton) is an easily assembled folding attachment with oars, intended for use as a shuttle between the shore and a boat. It’s faster to use than an inflatable dinghy and less cumbersome than a fixed attachment. When folded, the boat can be carried as a backpack and easily stored. It’s thin, light hull consists of a series of fiberglass sheets, covered with heat-welded plastic tarpaulin.
