Mould 223 is the heavyweight version of the M213, designed with a semi circular and narrow hull. Most notably, this boat won consecutive Olympic gold medals in 2004 and 2008 with James Tomkins and Drew Ginn, and Duncan Free and Drew Ginn. The use of this boat is widespread throughout Australia for heavyweight men. At the 2013 Sydney International Rowing Regatta, the French men's pair claimed the gold medal in a Mould 223.

"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."

Spectra Steering System image

Spectra Steering System

Spectra is a Kevlar-based product that is corrosion-proof and easy to use. Compared to the stainless steel wiring mechanism, the spectra system is lighter, more durable, corrosion proof and it does not stretch. A great innovation by Sykes.

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.
