Giovanni Isopi, Italy

Giovanni Isopi, is an engineer with experience in research and development in the automotive industry. Always passionate about woodworking, he designs and restores traditional small boats. In 2017, he decides to unite the two experiences and creates Baarca.

Mixing tradition and innovation, Baarca’s main objective is the development of small wooden boats, both beautiful and pleasant to build, thanks to the use of traditional assemblies.

Baarca is able to produce “stitch and tape” construction kits, as well as 3D kits for traditional construction – for home builders or professional boatbuilders – and to digitize existing projects with numerical modelling software (CAD). An originality of his approach is to go further than the only CNC plywood cutting by introducing 3D machining of solid wood or plywood pieces, for example a stem or a clinker strake with their bevels. See the photos below.

I wish good luck to this new partner in a country I like (I spent 8 years in my early years) and where amateur boatbuilding is still quite undeveloped.

Giovanni Isopi, ingegnere, proviene dal settore ricerca e sviluppo del settore automobilistico. Da sempre appassionato alla lavorazione del legno ed al progetto e restauro di piccole imbarcazioni tradizionali, nel 2017 unisce le due esperienze e fonda Baarca.
Tradizione ed innovazione sono i due termini alla base del progetto il cui scopo principale è lo sviluppo di piccole imbarcazioni in legno che siano belle e piacevoli da assemblare, grazie all’utilizzo di incastri tradizionali.
Baarca è in grado di produrre kit per la costruzione ‘cuci e incolla’ o kit 3D per la costruzione tradizionale, per privati o cantieri, e di digitalizzare progetti esistenti con CAD parametrico.
