This folding boat is a seamless, leisure boat made from a standard sheet of plastic. It can be assembled in under five minutes by a single person. The folding boat was developed within a paper-folding workshop in which methods of creating various forms out of a single piece of material were introduced.
The main advantages of the product are transportation, storage and assembly. Ideal for one or two people, the folding boat can be used in the urban environment in canals, ponds and lakes and is also suitable for fishermen, campers and boat rental services.
