Single Scull - Mould 136

Suggested weight range






Beam At Waterline


The Mould 136 is the boat of choice for Heavyweight Women and Lightweight Men in the country. It is designed for a 65-80kg crew weight and is 7.94m in length. It was built around the success of our most popular single mould, the M26. Our design team has modified and improved the highly successful design of the M26 to bring you the M136. With improved stiffness and rigidity, this boat is commonly rowed by lightweight men and heavyweight women, the AIS and state institutes of sport.

The boat has been rowed successfully at a crew weight of up to 83kg, however the Mould 138 will be more appropriate for an 80-90kg crew weight. 


"After rowing a second hand scull and club boats for 5 years, I decided to take the plunge on a new boat. After much research and advice from my rowing friends, I chose a Sykes 136 mould and have not looked back! From the first contact with Sykes to discuss my rowing needs to the delivery of the boat, I could not have wished for better service and confidence that I was making the right choice on such a big investment. As a masters rower, I think it is critical to not only have a boat that " fits" but you also need to be able to manage all the off water activities in boat handling. This boat is light to carry and manage on land but very sturdy and comfortable on the water. I did not expect to adapt to it as quickly as I did and with as much comfort. It is simple to navigate, from the quick release riggers to adjustments to span and height. Whilst I always have aspirations at some success in the brief time time that I have been racing, since taking ownership of my new boat, I  would be equally happy with the great enjoyment that I now have just rowing this boat- it is beautiful"
Trish, Port Macquarie

“I have been rowing my 136 single scull for 12 months now. Before my scull I was using school boats and they were much heavier and full of holes. When I first rowed the scull it took some time to get comfortable because it sat out of the water more than the sculls at school but after that it glides through the water. The boat is really nice to race in. So far I have taken it to Rockhampton for Qld States and to Sydney for the nationals. I feel that now I have a better scull I can get the best out of my rowing and also it will help me with injury prevention.”

Splashguard & Continuous Height Rigger Flange image

Splashguard & Continuous Height Rigger Flange

This mould has a continuous rigger flange height and a rounded and diminished splashguard. The higher saxboard along the cockpit adds to longitudinal stiffness in the hull so that the boat will sag less in the water when the rower sits in it, allowing for greater run. Due to the lower flange at the point of the hull, the feet of the rigger are longer so that the rigger is elevated to clear the toes of the shoes. These features also allow for the hull to be easily packaged and loaded onto the trailer.

Stern Deck Join With Bulkhead And Hull image

Stern Deck Join With Bulkhead And Hull

One of the most notable features of this mould is the clear finish of the carbon bulkhead and how that joins with both the stern deck and the hull itself. Both joins are strong and water-tightness can be easily assured. On the deck, the bulkhead piece overlaps with the deck in a nice clean line. With the hull, the stern bulkhead has a more robust join to keep the saxboards from splaying over time and to assure a water-tight join every time.

Dual Locking Backarm image

Dual Locking Backarm

The new sliding adjustable type back arms have a dual locking system. The 6mm bolt locks the backarm in place via an internal nut. The large ribbed plastic locknut is then tightened against the end of the back arm tube. This gives secondary support and ensures the force is well supported. The adjustment range is 70mm which easily allows for span changes on the rigger.

All Sykes boats come with span/spread measuring tapes applied on the pin block below each oarlock pin.

The footwell and seat decks of all Sykes single sculls are clear of any wiring. The stroke sensors are up under the seat deck with the magnet that trips the sensor placed on the slide clip of the seat ledge. The wire for the stroke sensor runs through the hollow carbon keel packer, well out of sight. The speed sensor is on the inside of the stern bulkhead, and the wire for it runs through a gasket high on the bulkhead, minimising the chances of water running through the hole.

Waterbottle Holder image

Waterbottle Holder

In the stern-end bulkhead under each seat deck a, is a standard bicycle-sized water bottle holder. Whilst fitted as a standard feature, they add approx. 110grm to the total weight of the hull.
