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, for to use as a tender to 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.

Speed-wise, the Heritage is certainly the fastest traditional design that can claim the ability to stand in. The benches are wood for a touch of tradition without overwhelming maintenance. The sliding seat monorail sets on top of the bench just as in the Classic. One may remove the slider (or order it without a slide) to row in the traditional fixed seat way. The rigger design is fixed in the outboard position as in a shell. Top of the line Concept II oarlocks is standard.
