As leaders in the rowing industry in Australia and globally, Sykes’ team of expert craftsmen are backed by industry leading technology.

In 2014 Sykes set up a new Multiax five-axis CNC machine. This machine is used to cut plugs to make moulds for our new boat designs with considerable accuracy. With the use of this technology, as well as investing considerably in research and development, Sykes’ latest designs are created with shorter lead times and more innovation.


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.
