The philosophy


"Why didn’t you just buy it ready!?" Words pronounced by a man who, hands in pockets, observes the busy one with pieces of wood and screwdrivers in his hands. Yes indeed, there is no doubt that you would have had a boat quicker and with less effort. Just like it would be easier to explore a foreign land from a travelogue instead of getting on that journey.

A man that builds a boat with his own hands is called a "self-builder". The term is ambiguous, it makes you think of a person that builds himself, but maybe there is something to it. All that time, that commitment, spent on transforming inert material into a functional object, it really is like a journey. A journey that has as its goal a sailing boat, but to reach it, passes through unsuspected places. One discovers something about handling a tool and something about oneself. The self-builder is the humble descendant of those dreamers who through the ages have climbed mountains, crossed deserts, built cathedrals.

Boats in kit are aimed at the community of do it yourselfers, from those with little or no experience, to those with a bit but not too much of dexterity, to those who are scared of using two-component adhesives, to those who have always wanted a boat but are intimidated by costs. bik! barche in kit produces ready-to-assemble boats with high technological content, winking at environmental sustainability, using low-polluting materials, making the end of life disposal possible without high environmental costs. The kit will include all that is needed to assemble the boat and get on the water as soon as possible.
