Design

Every Silverbirch canoe is designed in-house by James & Steve and nothing goes to production without extensive product testing utilising a mixture of individual customers, industry professionals, brand ambassadors, and our team paddlers to ensure varied, honest, and complete feedback.

Every Silverbirch canoe is drawn and faired at full size using traditional wooden battens. These graceful lines are then scanned at full size and imported into CAD, where we use them to build highly accurate 3D models of the finished canoe.

This fusion of techniques allows us to develop designs with the speed, efficiency, and accuracy of CAD modeling whilst still retaining all the benefits of traditional, time-honored craftsmanship.
