Pygmy Boats is the original manufacturer of precision, pre-cut stitch and glue kayak kits in North America. In the last 29 years our designs have been awarded "Best Kayak Kit" and "Best Wooden Kayak" and are enjoyed by thousands around the world. Started in 1986 by boat designer and software engineer, John Lockwood, Pygmy Boats produced North America's first computer designed wooden sea kayaks. Whether a paddler is novice or advanced in technique, we have a boat kit to suit your needs. Kits are 1/3 the price and 30% lighter than fiberglass with equal durability.
