The “Tinnie 10” boat is the latest project by Joey Ruiter – made from thick, lightweight, powder-coated aluminum, allowing the featherweight boat to weigh just 173 lbs (79kg).
When stepping on board passengers feet will meet the natural white oak plank flooring; a 6 hp 4-stroke or electric motor; and xorel upholstered seating, providing comfort for up to two adults when cruising through waterscapes.
Award winning and globally acclaimed designer, Joey Ruiter pushes through the boundaries of the norm and finds new ways to solve problems which leads to products that are as useful as they are jaw dropping.
“I see the designer’s role to lead people to what’s next… to push, to imagine, to create something great. It is important to me that people find a relationship with the objects that I create, inspiring creates new stories, memories and interactions with each other. Ultimately, that’s really what it’s all about,” he says.
And so it’s obviously true. This designer has the ability to see around the expected and to notice the unexpected in otherwise ordinary things. Moreover, he clearly can’t wait to strip a machine down to the bare parts so that he can start over. Thumbs up!
