Abstract

The Lancang Kuning boat is one of 10 traditional boats in Indonesia., In some areas, the traditional boat shape still exists today but the Lancang Kuning boat is no longerfound in the Riau Archipelago Malay community. For this reason, it is necessary to trace back the history of theLancang Kuning boat. The design of the propulsion system on the traditional Lancang Kuning boat usesa combination of non-mechanical and mechanical propulsion systems. The mechanical rowing of the traditional Lancang Kuning boat has 18 oars, consisting of 9 pairs of oars. from the left side and 9 oars from the right side. The mechanical paddle of the traditional lancang kuning boat is driven by human power.replaced by an electric motor forthe propulsion of this boat. The resultingboat still looks traditional but can reach a faster speed. This updated design of the Lancang Kuning would make the boat suitable for tourism activities and competition activities in the Riau Islands Province.
