Find the Right Boat

How to find the right boat 

Depending on your situation you will have dramatically different needs.

Here are some of the factors we will use to help you find the right boat:


For an individual:

  •  Your height
  •  Your weight
  •  Your arm span and leg length
  •  Your tailbone dimensions (for a comfortable seat)
  •  Your personal rowing style 
  •  Transportation needs
  •  Rigging preferences
  •  Seating and stretcher (shoes) preferences

Having a rowing boat custom-built for you can make a HUGE difference to the speed, comfort and performance of the boat.


Contact us today to discuss how we can put you into the best boat for your budget.


For a school or club you may want to consider the following points:

  •  Your fleet management plan
  •  Which crews will be rowing (weight, development, rowing aims)
  •  For elite crews, your coaching strategy (e.g. stability vs. max speed)
  •  Your target cost of rowing (to determine the shell density)
  •  Your ability to service and repair damages in-house (should an accident occur)
  •  Transportation needs
  •  Rigging preferences
  •  Seating and stretcher (shoes) preferences
  •  BULK PURCHASES - because fleet purchases attract handsome discounts
