Recreational Boats - Freedom

Recreational Boats - Freedom

“Freedom” is the name of Swift’s range of boats that are not designed for conventional Olympic style racing. This is a very appropriate name as it includes our Para, Recreational/Explore, and Touring boats, all of which give the rower the freedom to do what they want.

Recreational/Explore 1x and 2x

Swift Racing’s Recreational/Explore boats (Singles, Doubles and Pairs) are built to a FISA design. They are available in 3 grades of construction, either Elite (principally for Para racing), Club A or Club B, all with composite sandwich construction, providing stiffness and durability.

This is especially important in these flat bottomed stable boats, as the type of construction needs to achieve an optimum balance of stiffness and durability whilst at the same time keeping the weight manageable.

Recreational/Explore boats are particularly useful for introducing beginners to rowing.

The increasing trend towards touring and exploring remote and otherwise inaccessible stretches of water in recent years has also seen an increase in their popularity, whilst these boats are also favoured as an alternative to training in a fine racing shell, especially in open water or rougher conditions (please see note below about offshore/coastal boats).

They are also perfect for heavier loading and resistance training, where focus can be placed on power and strength, with less concern about balance (think floating ergometer!)

Recreational/Explore boats are stable due to their greater width/beam and flat bottoms. They track well due to their length, and also have a good turn of speed.

A Recreational Single was even used one year in the Czech Junior Championships by a novice rower, and it helped her to achieve a 3rd place finish!

Touring/Training Gig 2+/x/3x and 4+/x/5x

The Touring Gig 4+ and 2+ complete the range of Swift Freedom boats and offer the added feature of conversion to coxless 5x (Quintuple scull) and 3x (Triple scull) format. Ideal for both touring and training, these stable and robust boats are the same shapes as those already popular across Europe.

Please be aware that the Freedom range are not offshore/coastal boats, which are designed and built to deal with large waves on the sea, and are self bailing, usually with an open stern/transom. Click here for details on Swift Racing’s separate range of offshore/coastal boats.
