Chasing Perfection: Pedrazzini Wooden Boats


It was more than 100 years ago when Swisse boat builder, Augusto Pedrazzini started crafting boats by hand on the shores of Lake Zurich.

Today, run by his great grandson, Augusto’s incredible search for perfection continues – the boat company started in his name, and still make every boat by hand, with some of the rarest mahogany in the world. It takes more than 9 months for the Pedrazzini crew to finish one of the small masterpieces.

Over the course of a century, they’ve become one of the most sought after and recognised boat building brands in the world – a testament to the endless search for perfection, for embracing repetition and improvement, and always staying true to your craft.
