Light, stable and easy to row
Row for Life uses coastal rowing boats manufactured by Liteboat. The boats are known for being light, stable and easy to row.
We are the sole distributor for LiteBoat in the UK and we have a range of single and double coastal rowing boats available for hire. We also use them as demonstration boats for people interested in buying a Liteboat. We can also offer you a choice of two quads, but currently we do not have demo boats in the UK.
Range of boats includes:
Ideal for beginners and as a general leisure boat. It is very stable (in most conditions) and easy to row, so you can enjoy rowing without the fear of capsizing. The LiteSport 1X is 4.5m long and 23-27Kg (without riggers) so is quite light and easy to handle.
This is a coastal rowing boat used in the offshore championships. It is a great boat to row in both calm and choppy conditions, whether you are competing or just ‘going for a row’. Being a little longer (6m) and a little heavier (32Kg without riggers) it is more suited to those with some rowing experience.
Though the LiteRiver was designed for rivers and lakes, we use this boat on the sea, when the conditions are right; it is a dream to row. The LiteRiver is light, narrow and fast and needs to be rowed by an experienced sculler.
This is a great boat if you want to row with a friend or family member. Also great for beginners if they want to learn to row with an experienced rower. A very stable and easy boat to row.
This double is an excellent coastal rowing boat used in national and international championships, winning medals in 2017 and 2018. It is 7.5m long, 1m wide, weighs 60Kg with riggers complying with all FISA standards. We are really excited about this boat as it is fantastic to row.
LiteQuattro (currently not for hire, only to purchase)
This quad is an excellent and versatile rowing boat, suitable for novices, recreational and competition crews. It has exceptional stiffness with its internal carbon longitudinal bean and can be rigged both as a sculling quad and a sweep four with an easy to change rigger system. If taken in choppy waters, with it’s full deck it doesn’t sink even if full of water.
It is 11m long, 0.87m wide, 0.49m high weighs just 67Kg and can carry a crew of up to 500Kg. It rows like a dream.
LiteRace 4X (currently not for hire, only to purchase)
This quad is an excellent coastal rowing boat used in national and international championships. It has been designed to ensure stability in coastal waters while allowing for the same technique used by river rowers.
It is 10.70m long, 1.31m wide, weighs 140Kg and complies with all FISA standards. The boat can be adjusted to suit each member of the crew; it has a liftable dagger board to allow the boat to gain speed and manoeuver quickly at buoy turns.
