Alden Quest

The Alden Quest’s production was discontinued in 2014. Though the Alden Quest cannot be purchased new, we often carry used Alden Quest rowing shells. Please check our used boat page.

The Alden Quest 16 weighs less than 45 lbs and is the ultimate recreational touring shell. The Quest is built on the same exceptionally stable hull as the Alden Ocean Shell Single, offering all of the performance for which the Alden Ocean Shell Single is known. The advantage of the Quest is its integrated deck, sliding seat, foot stretcher and the same bolt-on rigger system as the Alden Star

The large, watertight, rectangular storage hatch is standard and ideal for carrying lots of gear. The Quest is a great shell that performs well on both open and flat water and its 16-foot length makes it easy to lift, transport and car top. The bolt-on rigger takes only seconds to install and remove for storage and transport.
