Since our first world championship gold medal in 1974, Sykes' boats and designs have been the choice of many of today’s Australian Rowing Teams.
Investing heavily in research and development, Sykes are continually producing brand new designs, and new testing and construction methods. Utilising the latest technology and high quality materials, as well as rigorous on and off-water testing, we never compromise on quality. We set the standard.
Single sculling is the purest form of rowing and successful single scullers are arguably the best athletes in the sport.
Sykes' single sculls are known for design innovation, performance and product quality, and currently have four different moulds on offer in their single scull fleet.
To help more athletes at the start of their rowing career, Sykes have designed the ultimate training boat range - the Initiator. The Initiator Range has the perfect balance of durability, stability, comfort and performance.
The Accelerator Range of single sculls is designed to bridge the gap between a training boat and racing boat. The Accelerator Range is a full carbon fibre and honeycomb racing single, weighing in the 14.3 -14.8 kg overall weight range.
Rowing as a double or pair is the ultimate test of the bond between two athletes. Having developed our range of pairs and doubles with some of the greatest to ever row, Sykes boats are built for speed and also to enable maximum co-ordination between rowers.
Fours and Quads provide a feeling of easy speed like no other when they are humming along between strokes. Sykes hulls aim to maximise the run between strokes with the least wetted area in contact with the water.
Coxed Fours and Quads demand strength and power to motor down the course. Sykes boats are widely used in Australia with schools and clubs alike. Overseas they have been successful with Junior World Champions.
