WWF-Philippines' Build Back Better Boats Project aims to create a new modern design of boat that will be faster, better, stronger so that it can be of use to fisherfolk for decades to come. The Bigay Tibay boat was designed by premier industrial designer, Mark Bautista, to be robust enough to withstand strong waves and storms. It was also designed in close consultation with tuna fishers federation in Lagonoy gulf so that it has features that fit their exact needs whenever they go out to sea.

The boat has features to help fishermen when they haul their catch, a covered hold to store the fish, a cleaning area built on the outriggers, a solar panel with headlights, and many other features. It is also made with a steel frame in a compartmentalized double hull design which makes it less likely to sink.

Closely working with our partners in the community, the fishers themselves are involved in the construction of the boats. Training is also provided to fishers to enable them to acquire new skills and create alternative livelihood opportunities outside of fishing.
