The Cornish Pioneer is a true rowing boat in the tradition of the larger gigs, fast but easy to row.

The Cornish Pioneer rowing boat is used by scout groups, rowing clubs, hire companies and private individuals.

The 18ft rowing boat is used by families and small group's to come together to keep fit, socialise and generally enhance personal wellbeing.

Being on the water with friends or family allows time together and a life style choice that encourages mental wellbeing and social interaction.

This boat is also ideal as a training vessel for traditional gig clubs as this can have up to 4 rowing positions and a coxswain.

Like all our models, the Skur Pioneer is built to high standards by experienced boat builders; all our boats are hand built in Cornwall to RCD standards.
