Elegant Design

This stunning piece of design and craftsmanship has copper wire carefully weaved in the carbon which delivers a depth to the texture and glistens when hit by sunlight – something which really makes the surfaces come to life.

The Borromeo de Silva Monocoque Paddle Canoe is a technically robust, durable and lightweight vessel that doesn’t rest on its laurels of looking amazing – it also delivers a knock out performance out on the water as well. The teak surface of the canoe is hand laid by Maestri d’Ascia, who is one of the oldest and most celebrated artisanal crafts in Genova and this provides a tangible sense of quality that really is second to none.

Boasting a clever, streamlined design, the Borromeo de Silva Monocoque Paddle Canoe has a space to stow away the oars on the side in what is a subtle homage to the fins on a Cadillac – something that any automotive loving canoeist is going to appreciate.
