Flexible - Supplied in a single rower configuration as standard (see above), the kit can be easily upgraded for two rowers or one rower plus a passenger.  You can even build your kit to accommodate all three seating options interchangeably.
Portable -  The marine ply hull is surprisingly light and can even be lifted and carried single-handed. The GlideSkiff can be comfortably transported on standard roof bars.

Nimble - With its light weight and efficient hull design, the GlideSkiff is pleasingly easy to row and steer, making longer trips or touring a viable option.

Safe - Stable on the water with built-in buoyancy tanks.
Convenient - Carefully designed for ease of assembly. No screws, nails, power tools or previous experience are required! It's a kit boat that can be quickly and easily delivered to you ready-to-build in any convenient space e.g. a garage or shed (will even fit through a standard door).
Affordable - Clever design allows us to supply you with a great value kit that does not require expensive add-ons or tools to complete.
Available - We can normally deliver kits direct from stock using standard courier services.
