Suggested weight range
Beam At Waterline
This boat is arguably Sykes most successful elite boat and has consistently medalled at both international and national levels. The M213 is equally as popular with heavyweight women and lightweight men, and as a pair or double.
"Our club treated ourselves to a Sykes lightweight (213 mould - 60-69kg) double in time for last year’s Australian Masters championships. We named it the Rod Keable, after the club’s oldest member (84 years old at the time, and still competing). Appropriately enough, Rod was in the stroke seat of its first outing, the Mixed Masters H-K double, in which they were second. Its second outing, the next day, was in the Womens’ Masters G pairs. First! And there have been lots more firsts in it since. We love the boat, light, responsive, and behaves well in all sorts of water. Best of all, it rewards good rowing. We have quick-release riggers on it, and have it set up so it can be foot steered from bow or stroke seat (although we haven’t used this feature yet!)"

"We recently purchased a 213 and 223 from Sykes, and they have quickly become sought after boats among both the students and masters at our club. The convenience of quick release scull and sweep riggers, coupled with superb hulls, make these boats our de facto 'regatta' pairs/doubles for our members. Judging on our 20+ year old Sykes boats still being used daily, we can comfortably expect these new kevlar-skinned boats to serve our club for a long time to come."
