As the hobby-turned-business of ex-US Navy engineer Nick Schade, Guillemot was officially launched in 1993 and they’ve since perfected the art and construction of strip-built kayaks that are as beautiful as they are functional. In fact, Schade has written a book about the subject, titled “The Strip-Built Sea Kayak,” and one of his kayaks —the Night Heron— was accepted into the Museum of Modern Art in 1998.
