It is built to go through the waves like a leaf, "explains Frode Maaseidvaag. "When you sit at the tiller, you get very little splash." According to Maaseidvaag, boats like the EMBLA have been built near his hometown of Stavanger, Norway, for hundreds of years. There they frequently serve as commuter vessels on the fjords..
