    The Little River Marine Heritage 12 Sliding Seat Guide Boat Heritage Line Is Made In The USA. As an exercise rower, she is much better than traditional dinghies, Due to her smaller size, women often choose the 12 as a boat that just “fits” better. When using a sliding seat, men seem to prefer the famous glide of the 15 or 18. Stability-wise they are pretty close to equal, both allowing the rower to stand.

    These boats are made in the USA and are customizable.

    Reminiscent of the romantic rowing craft which graced the waters at the turn of the century, the Heritage line is as much a joy to look at as it is to row. All of our rowboats are crafted using hand-laid fiberglass.

    The Heritage comes in three sizes, Heritage 12, Heritage 15, and Heritage 18. The Heritage 15 and the Heritage 18 can be rigged to row as a single or a double station. The difference is that the Heritage 15 is a lighter launch, and thus easier to handle, while the Heritage 18 has a longer waterline, and thus better rowing double. Which rowboat is best for you? If you will be rowing mostly as a single, the 15 is probably best. If you plan to row mostly as a double (and occasionally as a single) then the 18 is your best bet. The Heritage 12 comes as a single only, but can carry passengers. It is a good choice where space is a concern, or to use as a tender for a big boat. Also, ladies tend to prefer its smaller size.

    Versatility to fit your lifestyle. Take a partner or pile in the kids. Row hard or just sail. Clamp-on a two-horsepower motor. Pack a lunch and go exploring. Strap it on the car for summer vacation.

    The newest to our line is the economical 12 Guideboat. Very light at 65 lbs, yet still has the famous Heritage looks and glide. It may be purchased with traditional fixed seat oars, or with our wonderful sliding seat. Or both!


    Construction is of superior hand-laid fiberglass, not plastic. Plastic is much heavier and easily warps in the sun. As with kayaks, the quality boats are made of fiberglass.
    The Guideboat uses a time-tested full drop-in sliding seat station. It is removable and can fold up to fit in the back seat.
    Weight was a primary design parameter for the Guideboat series but also cost. This is a very economical way to get into the famous glide of the Heritage. Its timeless lapstrake hull, swooping sheer and wineglass stern give her classic good looks. This graceful craft will probably become a treasured family heirloom, thus the name the Heritage.
    New for yachtsmen is an optional all-white gunwale (no extra charge), so there won’t be any chance of scuff marks against your main vessel.
