Louisiana Cypress Pirogue Replica in Multiple Sizes
As early as the 1600s, settlers in Louisiana built dugout canoes for trapping, hunting, fishing and transportation. Over time, the boat design evolved into a plank construction using native cypress wood. These pirogues were a mainstay on Louisiana bayous until fiberglass construction gained popularity. A renewed interest in Louisiana heritage has led to a resurgence of cypress pirogue production.
Our handmade Louisiana Cypress Pirogue Replicas are made based on a scale model of full size pirogues still used on Louisiana Bayous today! The pirogues are handmade by our family, which now has 3 generations of boat builders.
Our pirogues are made of locally sourced, hand picked Louisiana Red Cypress and finished with our custom made oil. A pair of handmade wooden paddles is included with each pirogue.
Small: 15"L x 2 3/4" W at widest width
