40th anniversary of ŻABCIA - our first sailboat
There is a tear in the eye, it’s been so many years…
In 1982, ŻABCIA sailboat was designed. It was the first boat designed by Marek Jankowski, the founder of the KAMA company, however not the first one build by himself.
The sailboat was less than 4 m long, had 7 m2 sails and was made of plywood by sewing and gluing method. Thanks to that it was relatively fast and easy to build by sailing and woodwork enthusiasts themselves.
After ŻABCIA premiere in the main Polish sailing magazine – “ŻAGLE”, the sale of Do-It-Yourself plans began. The plans were very popular and more than 200 copies were sold.
NEMO - our new construction
We are introducing the NEMO pedal boat in a very attractive form of a ship.
Its concept was legally protected at EUIPO in Alicante.
Soon there will also be a version powered by an electric motor instead of pedals.
Come on board – who doesn’t want to be a captain?
Firefly in the new version
We have developed a new version of the Firefly motor boat powered by an outboard engine instead of a stationary one.
It has already been tested on the water and goes on sale today.
We hope she will find many buyers – she swims really nice 🙂

TALL SHIPS' RACES Gdynia 2009
On July 3rd, 2009, during The Tall Ships’ Races, Captain Mieczysław Krause cruised in the Proton from Górki Zachodnie to Gdynia.
The distance between both ports is 12 miles as the crow flies. Next day he returned to Górki.
The voyage took place under various weather conditions — with wind from calm up to Beaufort Force 5.
In Captain’s opinion the Proton is fast, seaworthy, sails very well up to the wind and with one meter high waves she cruises dry.
Mieczysław Krause is going to cruise by the Proton to Bornholm Island (Kolobrzeg – Nexo, 55 miles as the crow flies). The sponsors are needed urgently for this unusual expedition.
