For close to 40 years we have focused on building better rowing boats. Reflecting on a lifetime of personal rowing experience, every effort has been made to produce a rowboat of the highest quality and performance, making rowing accessible, fun and exciting for all ages and stages. Whether you opt for teak or fiberglass decks, your Loudon will be made to the highest standards with features just not found in other family row boats. With three oarlock positions, adjustable teak seats and footrests, the Loudon offers you the flexibility to row single or double, and if you wish, you can even take along a couple of passengers to do a little fishing. Whether you’re alone or taking the family along, the Loudon's fine ends offer improved tracking, increased speed and glide, not to mention stability in a cross wind and overall seaworthiness in calm or rough water.
The Loudon's double hull, hand-laid fiberglass lap strake design and construction also provide positive buoyancy, and the flat, non-skid floor makes it very friendly to get in and out. As with all Rossiter Boats, our Loudons are built for each individual customer and, as such, you can choose from a range of color combinations to match your tastes. You also have the option of Kevlar if you would like something a little lighter.
