Sculling boats for kids aged 4-5 to adult

Little Sculling Boats™ are smaller and more stable versions of single sculling boats. They are perfect for kids aged about 4+ and some adults (ca. 5′ 6″)  Our 2014 model fits a range from 35 lbs up to 200!  We make the only sculling single for kids this size, any the only one that will fit such a range.

They are perfect for learning to scull safely and well. A kid can learn to scull, turn and back within an hour. Really!

Lightweight, stable and durable

Our boats are lightweight, stable and durable. We make the hull out of molded fiberglass (unless you request carbon fiber). It is fitted with a sliding seat, adjustable foot board, aluminum riggers and Concept2® oarlocks. Anodized riggers for salt water use are available at additional cost. The Little Sculling Boat™ hull is available in one of four bright colors–yellow, orange*, red, blue–or white. The boat deck is available in your choice of bright yellow, bright orange* or white.

About Pricing and Cosmetics

We are trying to sell boats at as low a price as possible, so as many kids as possible can try it and enjoy sculling.   Our ‘A’ model boat is relatively simple, and in the building process we don’t spend time and money for perfect cosmetics that do not affect safety, ease of use, and durability.  We sell our boats ‘direct,’ for the most part, to keep the price low.  If you want a great durable, fun boat for a kid, and you want a low price, buy the ‘A’  model.

If you care about the cosmetic details, we’ll add the labor and materials to make it look more slick, but we have to charge more – that’s the  model ‘B.’  If you want a lighter one for ease of carrying to the water, and in case you can get some races together, plus a slicker look, buy the ‘C’ model.

We offer three models as of January 2014:

A) Fiberglass boat (~ 35 pounds rigged)  with sculls : $2475.
The A Model is a Fiberglass boat, affordable and great for learning and enjoying sculling.

B) Fiberglass boat (~ 35 pounds rigged) with clear coat finish added, wet-sanded &  buffed, with sculls: $4225.
The B Model is for those who want a more finished appearance.  The boat will have a nicer exterior look.  

C) Fiberglass and carbon fiber  boat (25 pounds rigged)  with clear added clear coat finish, wet-sanded & buffed, with sculls: $5225.
The C Model is for those who want both a nicer exterior finish and a lighter, stiffer boat.

*Please note, for an  Orange hull or deck we must charge $100 more.
