Our Skiff Fleet

Our Twenty Boats

Our oldest boats were built in the 1890s by R J Turk (and we think they are beautiful). More recently in 2012 we had a new pair of doubles built by Mark Stanley in Windsor, and in 2014 another set of matched doubles built to row the length of the Mississippi River.
