Flexible - Supplied in a single rower configuration as standard (see above), the GlideSkiff can be easily upgraded for two rowers or one rower plus a passenger.  All three configuration options can be used interchangeably requiring just a few minutes to swap between the options.
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.
Affordable - Clever design allows us to supply you with a great value boat. The even more affordable kit option does not require expensive add-ons or tools to complete.
Available - We will begin constructing your boat immediately we receive your order. You can expect your boat to be ready for delivery within a few short weeks. Kit boats can normally be supplied direct from stock.
