The Balmain Boat Company is a small family business based in Australia. They launched in the US this past summer. The Balmain Boat Company creates flat-packed, DIY rowboats and sailboats, because they believe that anyone can build a boat!
Each kit includes all of the essentials (detailed plans and informative construction notes, precision-cut plywood, nails, screws, etc) plus the Balmain product pages tell you what paints, oars, life jackets, covers, etc they recommend (specific to whether you are in the US or Australia.
