Luvia is a historic shipping district that has retained a charming rural character. Life here is as brisk and fresh as the sea wind. Luvia’s Beautiful Dream. An exciting scheme is being fulfilled in Luvia. A galleass named Ihana is built at Laitakari observing old shipbuilding practices. Luvia’s centuries-old shipbuilding traditions are still flourishing and there are plenty of master builders and boat-makers who know how to create a ship’s bows, how to plank the sides and how to choose the mast timber. The launching of the galleass was celebrated in July 2010, and the galleass virgin voyage was in 2011. Come and witness living shipbuilding traditions with your own eyes! Ihana cruises nearly every day at summertime.
