Alden Appledore Pod

Prior to 2010, the Alden Appledore Pod’s production was discontinued. Though the Alden Appledore Pod 16 and Appledore 19 cannot be purchased new, we often carry used Alden Appledore Pods. Please check our used boat page.

The Alden Appledore Pod 16 and Appledore Pod 19 are rugged sliding seat rowing boats. They both have plenty of extra room for passengers, gear or even your favorite dog! The Appledore Pods can be set up for single or double rowing. The Appledore Pod also converts to a quick sailboat when outfitted with the sailing package. The Appledore Pod’s traditional looks and seaworthiness are inherited from the classic pea pod boats, which have been rowed in New England waters for over 200 years.

The Alden Appledore is the ultimate family rowing boat designed to offer the ease of a traditional fixed seat pulling boat and the excitement of a sliding seat boat. The Appledore Pod 19 is one of the largest and most stable of the sliding seat boats and easily carries two rowers and two children. The Appledore Pod, when purchased with the fixed and sliding seat option, can convert from fixed to sliding seat in less than one minute.
