Two historic companies in the world of canoeing, Nelo and Struer, start a partnership for the development and construction of wooden kayaks.

Nelo, the leading company in top performance kayaks and canoes and the major innovator in canoeing, from boat design to services and technology, and Struer, founded in 1947 by Sv. Helge Kobberup and Gerhard Sørensen, which is the most recognized company in the construction of wooden kayaks, and for many years the lone leaders in kayaks design, signed an agreement that will give new life to wooden constructions.

“The reason to go into this partnership it’s mainly because of Nelo’s network and expertizes. Nelo is for obvious reasons the only brand we would partner for such adventure”

– Carl Larsen from Struer.

“We are extremely excited to open this new chapter with Struer and to have the chance to partner with an iconic brand. It’s a great opportunity and honor”

– Manuel Ramos from Nelo.



The goal is clear: bring back all the memories, mystique and glory of these types of manufacturing boats to all canoes and kayaks lovers.
