Probably the fastest and most robust Coastal C1x single scull available the EDON Coastal Scull with its unique construction material and innovative design is the ideal boat for racing in challenging coastal and beach sprint races. It is the perfect boat for competitive rowers, adventure seekers and coastal rowing enthusiasts.
The coastal scull meets all FISA requirements and includes an inspection hatch with waterproof compartment for valuables. The boat has been designed for both forms of coastal rowing competition, beach sprint and the more conventional round the buoy racing.
An example of the innovative design is the coastal sculls long keel incorporated into the scull construction making it ideal for beach landings and turning quickly around bouys. The long keel is in contrast to the traditional skeg (fin) which can be easily broken and cause injuries. The keel gives great directional tracking making it unnecessary to have a skeg.
Our coastal rowing scull is the most affordable coastal scull available..
Length and Weight: at 5.8 metres long, each coastal scull weighs approximately 37 kilograms.
Width: the coastal single scull is 750 mm in width as per FISA requirements.
Unsinkable and incredibly strong and durable.
The seat is constructed in fully moulded polyethylene and uses double action wheels on anodised aluminium rails for durability. Double action wheels will not seize up like bearing wheels in the harsh salt and sand conditions. Three plastic carry handles are incorporated on the decks to enable easy carrying of the coastal rowing single scull. A non-slip tread plate is incorporated in the seat well.
The coastal rowing single scull is fitted with a unique wing rigger which utilises standard scull oars. The rigger is easily detachable for transport and storage using the patented quick-release cam system. This means the rowing single scull can be rigged and de-rigged in seconds.
The coastal rowing single scull is constructed in polyethylene foam sandwiched between two layers of solid polyethylene making it not only virtually indestructible and unsinkable, but also stiff and light. The polyethylene foam is closed cell, making it completely waterproof and perfect for boat construction.
Our unique polyethylene stacking cradles are provided with each coastal single scull. The cradles allow up to 7 sculls to be stacked vertically on each other without any outside support.
At only $4995 each our sculls are very cost-effective because of the polyethylene construction making them a more affordable option at about half the price of a fragile fiberglass / carbon fiber coastal scull.
A bulbous bow is a protruding, bulb-shaped structure located at the front (bow) of the scull, just below the waterline. It offers several benefits, including:
The primary advantage of a bulbous bow is the reduction of wave-making resistance. The bulb modifies the bow wave pattern and reduces the formation of waves, resulting in reduced drag. This allows the boat to move through the water more efficiently and increasing speed.
The bulbous bow can enhance the seakeeping capabilities, particularly in rough sea conditions. It helps to dampen pitching and rolling motions, making the scull more stable and comfortable.
A bulbous bow can improve the maneuverability of a boat as it helps to maintain a straight course.
The bulbous bow can help reduce slamming, which is the impact of the bow hitting waves. The bulb modifies the flow of water around the bow, reducing the severity of impacts and minimizing the chance of green water coming over the bow.
For beach sprint racing the bulbous bow greatly improves the landing on sandy beaches as it skims over the top of the sand, instead of digging in like all sharp bowed coastal sculls.
