Edon TS515 sculling boats only from the Virginia Rowing Company.
Made in Australia of high grade marine polyethylene this high quality sculling boat will meet your needs for many years to come.
Hull shape is very important, too short and too wide and the boat is slow, too narrow and it becomes tippy. The Edon at 17 ft long and 23 inches wide is ideal for getting that real sculling glide in a recreational boat. A round bottom is essential for speed and enjoyment, flat bottomed wide boats become a chore to row, heavy and slow due to high levels of hull drag. The Edon's hull is designed to be stable yet fast and the removable pontoons make the boat safe for all ages, providing extra stability when you need it without getting in the way.
Edon rowing boats are made of light weight polyethylene, very robust, resistant to UV light and extremely low maintenance. Rower weight of up to 240lbs, the Edon is light and easy to car top and move around, the perfect recreational sculling boat for all skill levels.

Dreher Rowing Oars and Edon TS515 rowboats
Made in USA, Dreher make some of the finest quality rowing oars in the world. The standard hatchet style sculling oars that we recommend and sell with Edon sculling boats are affordable yet high quality, made from 100% carbon fiber, extremely light yet very strong and durable, ideal for rowers of all standards and suitable for nearly all sliding seat recreational sculling boats, rowboats and racing shells.
An optional upgrade for Edon sculling boats and for most other sliding seat rowboats and rowing shells is the Magik oarlock. Made in Australia these oarlocks have a patented system for holding the oars against the oarlock so that there is no slop between the two, accurate positioning of the oars and more positive connection with the water and faster starts.

Rowing boats, sculling boats, rowboats. What's in a name?
We use the terms sculling boat, rowing boat, rowing shell and rowboat interchangeably, in the context of our products they all basically mean the same thing. Technically a rowing shell does not have a keel, just a skeg (fin) and rowers in a sculling boat have 2 oars each. Folks talk about going rowing and it can mean rowing with 1 oar or 2, most people use these terms interchangeably, it's confusing but really doesn't matter.
Why sliding seat rowing boats.
Fixed seat rowing in boats such as wherries and guide boats uses the arms but not the legs which are the stronger muscles. Sliding seat rowing boats allow the use of the legs by moving the body back and forth on a wheeled seat, this also means that the oarlocks have to be spread further apart as the arc of travel of the oar handle is greater and consequently these sit on a wide rigger either attached to the sides of the boat on top. The combination of wide apart oar locks on riggers and a sliding seat means that the boat can be rowed a greater distance each rowing stroke and with more energy and faster than with fixed seat rowing boats.
Rowing on a sliding seat works all the major muscle groups and is also good cardio exercise. Don't worry that you think you are not fit enough to row, as you learn and your rowing technique improves so will your fitness allowing you to spend more time on the water which after all is what it's all about.
We are always happy to talk about rowing and in particular about our very affordable Edon TS515 sculling boats. Just call or email and we will do our very best to answer your questions promptly.

“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
Being in a rowing boat that's moving through the water, it's so clear. Everything falls into place in terms of what's important and what's not.
The goal is not to row the boat, but rather to help the boat row itself
Rowing is not only good for the body, it's good for the mind. Gliding across the water propelled solely by your own effort and contained in a sleek rowing boat not much wider that you are, heaven on earth.
