Our friend Dan finishing the Arthur Martin Memorial Race in Maine, great form and a beautiful boat!
Designed by Klaus Filter as a teaching boat that’s fun to row, it’s also perfect for the recreational rower who wants optimal exercise while exploring their natural surroundings on the water.
The Explorer is stable, comfortable, strong and sleek. You’ll also find the Explorer lighter, quicker, and stiffer than traditional recreational boats as it tracks well, maneuvers easily, and delivers speed typically seen in true racing shells. The reinforced bow and stern are also covered to shed water and the covered decks provide positive buoyancy even if swamped.
All levels of rowers will enjoy rowing the Explorer in all kinds of conditions. Perfect for family or club use.

MODEL A – Full Core Hull – Sandwich construction boats are lighter and stiffer than their single-skin counterparts due to a honeycomb core, making them more suited to high performance use. Although still pretty resilient, a very stiff hull of this type of construction is a little more susceptible to damage from bangs and knocks.
MODEL – B – Single Skin Hull – Single-skin construction boats tend to be hard-wearing with a little ‘give’ in the hull which helps absorb the odd knock in the boathouse or while being transported. They are a little heavier, but are ideal for novice crews and general club use where the boats are likely to take some general punishment, but still perform when needed.
