Accelerator Range


The Accelerator range continues our evolution of our very economical, yet highly competitive and stable boats. Featuring a full carbon fibre honeycomb construction, the Accelerator range is designed to take rowers from intermediate or school level to the next stage of their career.  

Like our successful Initiator range, our Accelerator hulls are made in our factory in China and then fitted with Sykes riggers, seats and stretchers in our Geelong, Australia factory. These fittings are the same as those used in our racing boats. All Accelerator hulls are expertly rigged and pitched in the Sykes factory before delivery.
