Rannoch Adventure have built more ocean rowing boats than any other company in the world, past and present. Whether you are looking to break world records, win races or looking for the safest vessel for your adventure of a lifetime, the R45 Elite is the boat for three, four or five man teams.


The R45 is the most popular ocean rowing boat design ever built. It’s the lightest and most user-friendly boat on the market. And it’s fast - really, really fast.

“The first SIX finishers in TWAC 2019 were R45s, plus 19 out of the 21 three-, four- and five-man teams chose the R45 as their preferred Ocean Rowing Boat…”

Each Rannoch vessel is lovingly hand-crafted to a design that has been honed with many years of experience. All Rannoch production boats are the only boats on the market that are CE certified and every TWAC category entered has been won by a Rannoch boat. Rannoch Adventure has been involved in a world record in every ocean and every race and has now produced more ocean rowing boats than any other boat builder globally.
