Brian won his first Great Race from Trinidad to Tobago back in 1976 with a Pirogue that he piloted himself.
That year was one of the roughest races with all the Big Boys of the day breaking down. The Bowen Pirogue handle these waves with ease and became the first
pirogue to win the Great Race. The Pirouge is a unique design built
for Caribbean fishermen. Brian modernized the traditional wooden boat
and started making a fiberglass boat in 1978. With its high bow and
narrow hull at the bottom it is made to go thru big waves and
continues in the tradition of keeping its crew dry. The pirogue is
available in a 27 foot or a 32 foot model and can utilize twin engines
for the safety minded fisherman. Available with a live bait well, the
Baseman is truly a fisher mans vessel.
