Here are some criteria to find a good Coastal Boat:
Similar to cars, the new Coastal Boats are becoming more and more similar in their shape and technology. And the differences between different manufacturers and boats are not really easy to spot for amateurs, especially if you come from Olympic Rowing and just started with Coastal Rowing. Therefore, it is important that you understand what to look for when you buy a new (or used) Coastal Boat.
In the beginning, it is really important to understand where you actually use the boat – at the coast, in a bay, or at a large lake with rough water. Because even though you might be able to row your coastal boat everywhere, there is no boat that is perfect for all bodies of water. And not every “Light Boat” is actually a light boat. It’s good to compare.
