Many foldable boat designs have passed through the pages of Gizmag over recent years – the Quickboat
, the Foldaboat
, the Adhoc

seemed to be the one to make the biggest splash (yeah, bad pun), raising close to $450K (5x its goal) on Kickstarter and earning all kinds of media and industry attention, including a 2014 ISPO
Product of the Year award. Rather than resting on its accomplishments, Oru has been listening to feedback and tweaking its foldable design, resulting in the all-new Bay+.
