Folbot is back?

A post from a new Folbot account just popped up in my IG feed. The account is about 10 days old and I can’t find a single word about it anywhere. Has anyone heard anything? It also looks like they’re doing a SUP.

They’re a Japanese company now. Anyone know anything about the Japanese folding boat scene? It looks like they’re making their debut at a show in Tokyo next week.


Looks like a model aimed at getting military contracts.

I think that’s just Japanese lifestyle branding.

Here’s the press release about buying the brand. Ignore the dates, they don’t translate well, they bought it in late 2020.

It’s a textile/lifestyle company that’s been in business since 1896.

Tamurakoma & Co.,LTD. OEM Manufacturer is on FB, worth keeping an eye on.

It looks like their catalog is scheduled for “2023 Spring and Summer.” They must have licensed the name.

Have a look:

Neat. I’m not thrilled with the lineup and… $2,500 seems like a LOT, but as long as the name is alive there’s a chance for the evolution of the company.

Looks like one model. beamy and heavy. Meh. Better options from Pakboat.
