Since Adirondack Rowing began its business in 1970, we made the decision to provide the highest quality educational, informational, and instructional services for new and experienced scullers and rowers. We have kept to that commitment without fail. We have found, in every one of those 46 years, that prospective and experienced scullers truly need a high quality rowing and sculling educational and instructional service before they consider purchasing for the first time or for the second time, or more, a new or used rowing shell. All scullers who understand the importance of a quality educational and learning experience become happy, injury-free, lifelong scullers.  

Our emphasis on the highest quality educational approach has resulted in our being the oldest and best full service rowing shell dealer on the North American continent. Since our first sculling lesson in 1970, we have delivered  unparalleled new and used rowing and sculling products for open water and racing shells. We also offer the planet's largest rowing shell rental program as well as premium, high-quality, individualized, sculling lessons for all levels of sculling. In fact, Adirondack Rowing was the first and remains the only company to have the rowing shells we offer and instruction on the same shoreline. No other full service dealer exists with such high quality services that we offer to the rowing community.

Two great reasons to purchase a new rowing shell!

Attention New York State Residents! 

Did you know that we pay your New York State sales tax for MAAS, Alden and WinTech shell purchases? 

Saving 7% sales tax can make a big difference! 

Attention Canadian Residents! 

Did you know the Canadian Tariff Classification of a shell is 8903.99.10?  You can import a rowing shell into Canada duty free if it is made in the USA.

How do I place my order!?

Please E-Mail adkrowing@roadrunner.com or Call 518-745-7699 or we would love to talk to you. 

The Rec Racer feels a lot like a top end racing shell, but with the stability of a recreational boat.

Rowing Shell Sales

Adirondack Rowing is the world's largest provider of new and used rowing shells and sliding seat family boats.  Since 1971, we have provided access to only the best quality shells and rowing products and in fact have taught more scullers and sold more shells than almost anyone else, including manufacturers. We deliver our customerís shells more efficiently and safely than anyone else. In fact, we remain totally committed to bringing you the best equipment in the quickest and most cost effective way possible for over 38 years.


High-Quality Private Sculling Lessons

Our rowing school has been providing great sculling instruction for over 38 years, specializing in high-quality, and efficient one to one instruction.  Our expert instruction, coupled with low instruction rates, ensures our rowing school is full of happy scullers spring, summer and fall.  Our original mission was to provide private instruction to allow people to replace weeklong rowing camps for people who needed to make time count.


Rowing Shell Rentals

Adirondack Rowing offers rowing shell, guideboat and wherry rentals from dawn to dusk, 7 days a week, from our location or yours.  Enjoy the beauty of an early morning row while on vacation in the Adirondacks.  We are able to provide a variety of shells, guideboats and wherries for rent along with delivery and pick up if necessary. 

One-hour rentals to multi-day rentals available.


Fixed Seat Rowing

Adirondack Rowing is the first place to offer a fixed seat rowing school with demos and rentals.  It occurred to us as a rowing boat company that guideboat education and rental opportunities were non-existent and thereby neglectful of the outdoor publicís wants and needs.

Since we began our sculling school in 1971, we have been, and continue to be, very proud of our unparalleled customer service and our motto to treat others as we would want to be treated.  Over the years we have received unsolicited letters, emails and phone calls, all with the nicest words from our customers, as well as some from people who were not our customers!  We always respond to our customers with our appreciation, as we are very thankful of these kind words.  On our testimonial page we proudly post these phone calls, emails and letters for others to read so they too will know about the high quality of customer service we stand behind here at Adirondack Rowing.

I just want to let you know that Bill, Dave, Grigory, and I all had a wonderful time rowing from Long Lake to Ampersand Bay in your Adirondack Guideboats last week.  We greatly appreciated the care you took in explaining everything we needed to know about the boats and wheel-a-weighs, providing us with a repair kit (which did come in handy for retightening some bolts along the way), and instructing the novices in the basics of sculling.   Please also extend my thanks to Karen for her patience in answering the many questions I had before the trip.  M. Schleier, PA.

Just a note to say thank you very much for the great sculling lesson and also to tell you that you ought to change your company motto to "we fix $40 rowing lessons!".  Your class was what we really needed.  We only wished that we would have taken it before our other lesson!  We have never experienced such well thought out, practical and fun instruction.  We learned a lot in the two hours and it really shows in our sculling stroke.  Our friends at the club quickly noticed how much we had improved after we got back from your place.  Thanks again and we are so pleased that we found you!  S & L Paulicek, Pittsburg, PA I can't thank you enough for your service and treatment of me as a first time shell buyer.  In gathering all information possible from every source on rowing you were the standout among all dealers and manufacturers.  Unlike the others you were completely positive, definitive, very thorough and quick to help me out.  This means a lot to us Alaskans because it is difficult to receive what we want in a timely manner.  Rowers would be crazy to deal with anyone other than you. S. Anstin, Fairbanks ALASKA


Thank you so much for having my family at your Rowing School.  We learned so much and had a great time!  My wife and kids enjoyed the rowing so much!  To be able to compare all the shells and family boats in one place is the way to go.  You were so descript on the attributes of MAAS, Alden and Pocock that the decision on which shell to buy was easy.  We plan on coming back next year when our son is old enough for his own shell.  We know he will get the best shell for his needs while on vacation in the Adirondacks or almost anywhere else in the Continental USA.        M. Kellerher, Madison WISC



We want to thank all of our great customers who have been such a support to us over our 40 years of business.  This support has allowed us to continue to bring the best open water shells, wherries and guideboats to your shorelines for enjoyment.
