About Vincent Wooden Boats

Company owner D. Keunecke can look back on many years of experience in the wood sector. After completing a carpentry apprenticeship and studying wood economics, he earned his doctorate at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich on the mechanical behavior of wood, published in scientific journals, and gave presentations at international conferences.

D. Keunecke first pursued his interest in theoretical and practical aspects of boat building privately for several years beginning in 2008. During this time, he built various boats; in the process, the decision matured to devote himself to boatbuilding professionally as well. In 2011 he took the examination for the construction of kayaks, canoes and rowing boats in wood-fiberglass-composite construction and founded the company Vincent Wooden Boats.
