Alden Double



The Alden Ocean Shell Double is one of the most versatile open water rowing shells. It offers all the benefits of the Alden Ocean Shell Singleplus the ability to easily setup for double or single rowing. The Alden Ocean Shell Double uses the Oarmaster drop in sculling system. Weighing only 18 lbs, this self-contained sliding seat sculling unit can be inserted and removed in seconds, making it quite easy to convert the Alden Ocean Shell Double from a single to double, or even row as a single and take a passenger.

The Alden Ocean Shell Double uses the same exclusive hull design as the Alden Ocean Shell Single, but is a bit longer with a stiffening section to maintain rigidity when loaded. The large cockpit has extra space for storage. The Alden Ocean Shell Double has been rowed all over the world, including a coastal adventure from Alaska to Washington State loaded with gear. Even on shorter trips, you will appreciate this shell’s stability and versatility.
