Wa'apa - Custom Built Hawaiian Sailing Canoe, configured as either a 24 foot or 16 foot craft

This is a custom built Wa'apa, Hawaiian sailing canoe that has a uniquely flexible design.  It can be sailed or paddled as a 24’ boat or as a 16’ boat.  As a tacking outrigger, hiking seats on both sides of the hull will be used to provide seating and ballast. 

These outrigger sailing canoes have been used for centuries in the Pacific and Indian Ocean islands, beginning about 6,000 years ago.  They are still used daily across these areas for recreation and commerce.  The evolution of the sailing canoe has spanned many centuries with little change to the basic configuration.  Few other craft have gone through such a long development with such exacting conditions   This style of sailing canoe is the current popular style in Hawaii which they call the Waapa.  The Waapa’s beauty and elegance, combines with a ruthless functionality and efficiency, make it a very attractive vessel which is easy to master.

The features of the Wa'apa style are:

  • High performance

  • Lightweight

  • Compact storage (three 8 ft sections)

  • Easy assembly/disassembly

  • Designed for one man crew but as many as 6-7 paddlers/passengers

The Wa'apa is a unique water toy, unique way to sail, unique way to paddle a waterway, spend time with family/friends, a novelty, a collectable and likely to hold it’s value.
