At Sykes Racing we understand the demands and strengths required to win. No matter what your situation we can back you with a product that will enable you to fulfil your most obsessed desire.
So why don’t you get the Championship edge? - find out more about Sykes Racing.
2006 saw Sykes Racing celebrate 40 years of manufacturing excellence. While we have grown to be the largest rowing boat builder in Australia, we have seen rowing grow and develop in leaps and bounds.
It was in 1966 when Jeff Sykes first designed a racing scull that would assist him in his desire to win an Australian Sculling Championship. Today, 40 plus years on, we still share Jeff’s passion and desire to be the best at what we do.
Since our first rowing World Championship gold medal in 1974, Sykes Racing and our boats and designs have been the choice of the majority of Australian Rowing Teams. We are proud of the fact that our boats have powered most of Australia’s Olympic and World Champion medals. We sincerely hope that you will share in this success. Just like the rowers in our boats, we love to win too, and sharing in your success when you use a Sykes boat is an important and enjoyable part of the business.
Unlike many boat builders, our boats are Australian made at our base in Geelong, Victoria and exported around the world. We have a team of expert craftsmen backed by the latest equipment to ensure that our products are nothing but the best. We ensure that we use the highest quality material and expert workmanship and we guarantee our boats for considerable time after their sale.
