The blog

This blog shows most of the Brazilian boats & canoes known or used on the coastline or inland of the country. As a sailor my interest started with sailing canoes and most of them originated from Indigenous peoples, African culture brought by slaves, Portuguese immigrants including those from the Azores and designs influenced by Dutch & French during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Note: The content has no scientifical data and names are kept in Portuguese and texts in English.
