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.
Sykes has committed to a path of innovation for the future. Investing heavily in new machinery and new engineering staff for our R & D team, we are continually producing brand new designs, and new testing and construction methods. Utilising the latest technology and materials, as well as rigorous on and off-water testing, we never compromise on quality. We set the standard.
Sykes single sculls are known for design innovation and product quality. Targeting performance and responsiveness, we have been perfecting our single scull range since 1966. Sykes are set to release two new single sculls, bringing our single scull fleet to five different moulds.
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.
