Born in Charleston, Dan Perrin developed an understanding and appreciation for the Lowcountry and the environment at a young age. As a self-taught sailor, Dan grew up with a strong passion for the water. Growing up sailing, Katy also developed a strong appreciation for the water and the environment.
Woodworking has always been a passion of Dan's and in 1999, Perrin started the cabinetry business Perrin Woodworking. Katy joined the team in 2005 and together, Dan and Katy strive to provide the highest quality wood products while using state of the art sustainable building methods. Dan and Katy share in their passion for woodworking and the environment and have been implementing the company’s values of quality, sustainability, and professional design. Combining their passion for the water and over 20 years’ experience designing and building custom cabinetry, the pair began to design and build custom paddles for family and friends in 2010.
