Initiator Scull Range


To help more athletes at the start of their rowing career, Sykes have designed the ultimate training boat range - the Initiator. This range is designed to help with learning to row, while also being ultra-durable, competitive and, needless to say, more affordable.

The Initiator range has been designed by Sykes in Geelong, Australia with the perfect balance of durability, stability, comfort and performance. Built in Zhaoqing, China the boat has fibreglass exterior and internal surfaces, which combined with Spheretex gives supreme durability. The unique design and construction which includes structural elements in carbon fibre means the boat is remarkably light for a boat of this style!
