Feliciano Carpintero de Rivera

Feliciano. Naval Carpenter

San Cristobal

  • I am a boat maker, this is, a naval carpenter. I built them with my hands and it takes approximately six months to build a 9 metres overall length boat.
  • I used to enjoy watching the carpenters work building boats, and by watching them I learnt the trade. Today, I am the last naval carpenter in the island and take orders from all around the Canaries.
