PS-BuK Standard and 10-Paddler Dragon Boats
An opportunity exists for PDBA clubs and the wider U.S. dragon boat community to purchase the official boat of the PDBA Regional Championships being held on August 2-4, 2019 at Vancouver Lake, WA. The boat being offered is the Pei Sheng built BuK (PS-BuK). Pei Sheng is the officially licensed BuK manufacturer and has been manufacturing and distributing the PS-BuK boat internationally since 2016.
About the PS-BuK Boat
In 2015, BuK (Germany) and Pei Sheng formed a joint venture partnership to pair the highly regarded BuK dragon boat design & high-quality processes with the production capacity & worldwide distribution potential of Pei Sheng. Pei Sheng is one of China’s largest composite manufacturers with a well-established Rowing and Paddlesport divisions. In 2019, the PS-BuK boat has been selected as the official competition boat for the IDBF Dragon Boat World Championships (Pattaya, Thailand) and the ICF Club Crew World Championships (Kiev, Russia). The molds used to build the boats are made by BuK in Germany and shipped to China. The factory only uses materials that meet or exceed the stringent requirements of BuK and closely monitors the
production to ensure the boats are worthy of the BuK name. Mike Kerkmann is the owner of Pan Am Dragon Boat and the official distributor of the PS-BuK boat in the United States. He visited the Pei Sheng facility in 2018 to inspect the boat and the materials/processes used to manufacture the boat. This visit revealed to him that the PS-BuK is the highest quality product available to the North American market. View video here.

At this time our plan is to ship one container of 8 boats to the PDBA Regional Championships. If this container sells out quickly we will consider a second container but will offer the special sale price on the condition that we confirm sales of at least 4 of those boats. There is a benefit to committing to some of the 1st container boats early… that is the opportunity to select combined hull & scale colors for your fleet. Sales that occur after the boats are manufactured will be white hulls with some standard scale colors… blue, red, green, etc…
The PS-BuK has been selected as the official boat for both the 2019 IDBF World Championships in Pattaya and the 2019 ICF World Club Crew Championships being held in Kiev. Also… the 2020 IDBF European Championships.
