SAVILE / Benoît Loicq - SAVILE sprl - Rowing boat / Bateau d’aviron / Canottaggio

To us SAVILE is more than just a boat, it is a dream. THE STORY SAVILE is a story written by enthusiastic people who together created something profoundly human, something crafted by hand, something that has never been done before. Something you will sense the moment you feel your boat glide across the water for the first time.  The way people look at our design made us realise that this boat is not just a boat, but an object that gives emotion. So, we decided to turn our boat into unique pieces of art, and make them contributing to a more peaceful and sustainable world.  Each SAVILE boat is one of a kind, an art object handcrafted with care. Values such as respect, humility and sustainability are central to the skilled​ craft(wo)men and artists who take part in this iconic creation.  Find out more on www.savile.boats. LIFETIME EXPERIENCE The SAVILE boat is designed to provide the ultimate combination of lightness, performance and stability, allowing to concentrate on the perfect rowing stroke easily and safely. All of this contributes to the rower's immersive experience: with the swallow tail-shaped opening at the aft of the boat offering a visual and sensory link with the water.    Like a piece of art, you might imagine this boat on display in your home. THE LAKE COMO DESIGN FESTIVAL ONE OFF EDITION Gliding on the water provides a moment of serenity, a timeless moment on the water to hear, breathe and feel differently. With light and air, water is one of the most basic human needs for health and well-being. Yet the natural source of life on earth is threatened. For the Lake Como Design Festival, we are thrilled to unveil the boat in this light blueish colour with lines of gold representing a reflection of the increasing scarcity of water and raising awareness of everyone's right to quality water. Particular attention has been paid to the quality and sustainability of the materials, as well as the finishing details. As this boat is entirely handcrafted, it has a few ‘perfect imperfections’ that also make this boat so unique. A BOAT FOR CHANGE We build it to last. Above all, we make it for Change, as we value Design & Art for a peaceful and sustainable world. Therefore, with the sale on Catawiki, 15%* of the sale price will be donated to the FONDATION TARA OCEAN. The FONDATION TARA OCEAN (www.fondationtaraocean.org) has two main missions: exploring the Ocean to better understand it and sharing this scientific knowledge to create citizen and collective awareness. Since 2003, it has been developing high-level ocean science to understand and anticipate the upheavals linked to climatic and environmental risks as well as the impacts of various forms of pollution. * If the auction reaches the estimated value, we will be pleased to donate 20% of the sale price. Our commitment is not limited to donating a percentage of the sale price, as the profits from this sale will in turn be invested to create other unique editions of the boat to support other causes. INQUIRIES Would you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask us. DELIVERY The buyer will be responsible for the cost of delivering the boat. SAVILE will be pleased to assist the purchaser with a quotation and practicalities for the delivery. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION AND ACCESSORIES This boat is a single-seat rowing boat designed for lakes, rivers and calm waters.
