    Why Buy From Light As Air Boats

    The Little River Marine 18 Double Guideboat Rowboat is a single-skin boat, made from a hull mold only, similar to the way a canoe is made. The newest to our Heritage line is the Guideboat It is built on the same acclaimed hull shape and design as the Classic Heritage, but sold at a more economical price.  The inside has a gel coat finish. The Heritage hull is famous for its stability. One can even stand in it and cast a fishing pole. 


    The rowboat will stay in your family for generations.  Its timeless lapstrake hull,  swooping sheer, and wineglass stern give her classic good looks. At first, one just wants to look at it and imagine the quiet streams and golden sunsets where a Heritage belongs.

    These boats are made in the USA and are customizable.

    Versatility to fit your lifestyle.
    A larger version of the Heritage 15, the Heritage 18 is a slightly more stable row boat than its smaller sibling. Its larger carrying capacity makes it suited to family trips. All of our rowboats are crafted using hand-laid fiberglass. She is incredibly dry and at home in any water. Just ask David Bean, who rowed a Heritage the entire coastline of Texas. Or ask the man who rowed his heritage completely across the Baltic Sea from Sweden to Germany.

    Thanks to our Patented folding rigger, set up and launching is a breeze. Slide your Heritage off the dock, push off, swing out the rigger, and go. It’s that simple!
    Fold the rigger all the way in and it serves as a handle for lowering yourself in and out of the boat.

    The Magic of Design
    We have been designing racing shells for 30 years, and know sliding seats and lightweight technology. Our design thinking is simple: “Exercise should be Inspirational.” Make this skiff wide enough to stand, and no wider. Make her sides tall enough to be dry, but not so tall the wind blows you over. Make her as light and tough as possible.

    The Carbon Classic is super light and great for rooftopping. All carbon hull & deck make for an incredibly rigid, lightwieght ocean-capable adventure craft.

    Heritage Construction Choices:
    There are 3 construction choices. This page has been about the Classic, which comes fully lined, with massive floatation, and is medium priced. There are 2 other construction choices.You may choose an ultralight carbon hull for the Heritage 18, or the new economical Guideboat. She also has a sailing option.

    The Heritage 18 model comes two ways, as a single or the Heritage 18 double. The 18 double comes standard with the ability to convert it into a balanced single.

    The Heritage Size Models
    The Heritage comes in three sizes, the Heritage 12, the Heritage 15 and the 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 water line, and thus a better rowing double. Which row boat 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 weight, or to use as a tender to a big boat.

    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.
