Rowing boat designs

Available in four ranges, Kanghua boats are based on the popular hull shapes widely used in top-class competition and the aerospace-grade honeycomb core used in all bar our entry-level range provides stiffness and excellent resistance to impacts and water ingress.

KX and Spirit Ranges

The KX and Spirit ranges use all-carbon laminate for light weight and increased stiffness, and are equipped with riggers manufactured in the UK by ES Rowing Services.

Phantom Range

The Phantoms make excellent club boats, featuring a carbon and glass fabric outer skin, while remaining lightweight and strong. Identical in external construction, the Shadow range swaps honeycomb for a core mat core, reducing the price to offer unbeatable value.

Entry-level Range

The entry range boats offer particularly good value, featuring the same Aerospace grade honeycomb core with a carbon and glass fabric outer skin.  Lightweight and strong,

All ranges meet the very highest construction standards and are available in the full range of weights and sizes.
