100 Grafoplast
Fibre glass boat 

Designed by Phil Morrison and built by Rowsell and Adkin in 2004

No more for sale

It has been arranged for the boat to be exhibited in an Italian Maritime Museum





It crossed the Atlantic from Italy to Brasil in 2006 (226 days) and the Pacific from Lima (Perù) to Australia 2008 (in 294 days).
It's well built and resistant. I spent more then 500 days of my life on it and I can say that it is safe and self-righting.
It has a very good and safe electrical system, 4 solar pannels still working very well. It has 3 batteries to be checked.
It comes with AIS (automatic identification System- anticollision system. the best system I ever tried!) like new, VHF radio, purple finder (tracking system) and navigation lights.
The old paint has been taken off and a new pain will be given soon.
It needs a new rudder (I will provide for that)

We just did a successful independent crossing from Gran Canaria to Barbados in 45 days and 15h.

She is in perfect state, we haven't had any problems with her, never felt in danger, as she was stable even with breaking waves directly from side.
This was her third crossing. She was built in 2005 by Woodvale for Charlie Martel and his guys that did the North Atlantic with her. She did another crossing wit the team (Un)Finished business in the 2009 race, earning the female-fours record.

We didn't do a 100% job with her, but were very near perfection!

So the boat comes with:
- 4 man Zodiac ocean life raft (bought in Jan 2011)
- Katadyn survivor 35 with new membrane
- Instruments on deck, All NASA Marine : GPS repeater, speedometer,

Built for the 2007 Atlantic Rowing Race Dream Maker is only a one of 4 wooden boats actually built by Wooodvale.

She is one of the best plywood boats around. Dream Maker is built to be light, fast and strong. As the only mixed sex crew in the Atlantic Rowing Race 2009 we finished 9th overall and 7th in the pairs class (for a large part of the race we were in 5th place), beating many more expensive Carbon and Composite boats.

Dream Maker was fitted out professionally in 2007 by Dolphin Quay boatyard and was extensively updated for the 2009 race to improve speed and reliability including self steering/autopilot. The boat finished the race in excellent condition and would be ready to go for the next race with little effort. If you are looking for a fast and competitive boat at an affordable price this is the boat for you.

Dream Maker meets the specifications for Woodvale Races and comes with the majority of essential kit required by the race rules.

Dream Maker comes with manuals etc for all equipment, together with lots of friendly advice and encouragement.

82 Carpe Diem
Ocean Rowing boat plus trailer








Challenge class plywood boat.

Built in 1997 in Bossums Boatyard in Oxfordshire , she successfully crossed the Atlantic 2 times:
1. from Tenerife to Barbados in 1997 Port St Charles Atlantic Rowing Race with the first and only Mother & Son team, as can be seen in the current Guinness World Records Book (2008);
2. from La Gomera to Barbados in 2004 ORS Atlantic Rowing Regatta (winner of the Regatta)

In 2007/2008 the boat has been completely refurbished and considerably re-enforced. The work done by ORS Int. technical team - the most experienced and knowledgeable repairing team in oceanrowing: list of boats repaired  by them  for preparing for sea includes Odessa, Marion-Lviv, Rus, Ukraine, Isidoro Arias, Memory of Zayed, La Mondiale.

The re-enforcement was made with  light and strong materials, that did not add much to the weight of the boat but made it to be one of the most reliable plywood boats available.

It has been modified for team of three, so the storage cabin is prolonged under the deck and can be used as a separate sleeping compartment.

Now it has anti-slip grey deck space (to protect your eyes from sun reflection) and white hull.
New electric system and solar panels. Rowing station, 1 set of Macon oars and 2 sets of choppers. 8 new Henderson hatches.
No other equipment, but any equipment of your choice can be installed by the team by arrangement.

Challenge class Ocean Rowing boat

Formerly known as “Yantu” this boat was professionally built to a very high standard in 2001. The boat is 100% watertight and very simple to use. It has completed three unassisted crossings of the Atlantic from East to West, and has had a book written about it.

This is your chance to own a safe, reliable and fast boat with historic interest.
Apart from food, this boat comes complete with virtually all the 2005 mandatory race equipment including a full electrical refit and new spectra watermaker for the 2005 race.

Set up by rowers, (not us!), the seating positions are very comfortable. The boat also has a great foot steering mechanism which enables you to set the trim from either position and make quick changes in surf conditions.
Painted in white, the boat will not only keep you cool but allow you to customize it to your own design very easily (Just peel off the old stickers).

54 'C²' 
Having successfully completed the 2005 race, we would now like to offer someone else the opportunity to do so in what turned out to be a great boat.

Nearly complete race inventory - includes all equipment required by 2005 Woodvale rules (e.g. fixed EPIRB, handheld EPIRB, fixed VHF radio, handheld VHF radio, handheld VHF radio, fixed GPS, handheld GPS, fixed watermaker, handheld watermaker, Sea Me, solar panels, fixed compass, handheld compass (2), strobe light, lifejackets, survival suits, flares (none used!), harnesses, 2 pairs of oars, sea anchors, droque, ropes, first aid kit (largely still intact), tools, 2 axes, knives, fitted mattresses (very comfortable!) etc, etc). 
Also comms equipment - 2 Iridium satellite phones, date kit, iPaq handheld PC - in short just about everything you will need to make an ocean crossing! 
 And a trailer to tow her on too. 
Full inventory available on request. 
 We will also be happy to provide the boat's new owners with advice and support on the boat, race preparation, tactics etc. 


'Atlantic 4' (previously 'Queensgate')

Click on this image to see one more


 BOAT FOR SALE: Roswell and Adkin built composite hull. MUCH stronger than the flat packed plywood boats and with a far longer lifespan.
Two successful Atlantic crossings, no capsizes and the boat still holds the 4’s crossing record of 36 days and 1 hour.
Twin berth arrangement to suit 1 to 4 rowers. Would make a particularly good pairs boat due to the ability to have a working cabin (wet cabin) and sleeping cabin (dry cabin). Also bow cabin is below the waterline and body shaped to remove the problems of being thrown about in the main cabin when sleeping. The boat is acceptable for the next Woodvale race as a pair or solo.
EQUIPMENT: All equipment required for 2005 Woodvale race included. Some items in first Aid kit used, otherwise top up the satellite phone and go rowing. Includes several 'luxury' items, e.g. auto-helm and extra GPS mounted on deck to display speed / course information while rowing.
Trailer included - pick up and drive away.


56 'Row 4 Cancer'
click on the image to see one more



£20,000 (including all equipment - we are open to negotiation on equipment)

Team Row 4 Cancer have completed the 'epic' 2005 Atlantic Rowing Race and are offering future ocean rowers the chance to buy this fantastic fast and reliable boat!

Row 4 Cancer is one of only a few second hand Challenge Pairs class boats to have rowed an ocean just twice. The boat was built in France by professional boat builders in 2001 and has achieved crossing times of 64 days; 12 hours; 31mins (2001) and 60 days; 18 hours; 56 mins (2005).

In 2005 Row 4 Cancer was rowed by Liz O'Keeffe and Richard Mayon-White who became the first mixed pair to finish in Antigua and Liz the first girl to finish (beating both '4-girls' boats). They finished 8th overall (out of 26 starters) and 6th in the pairs class. Prior to their campaign Liz had no rowing experience and Richard had not rowed for many years. Their finishing position is testament to the volume of work put in to the complete refit of the boat throughout 2004/05 to make it fast, strong and very seaworthy. The boat rolled 4 times in the 2005 race, due to the extreme conditions and speeds traveled (max 18.6 knots!) but on each occasion she flipped straight back up again - not many boats can claim that!

It is with regret that we have to sell our beautiful boat!

Boat, Trailer, Electronic and Safety Equipment

We are very flexible in our approach to selling the boat.

We have available a full compliment of electronics, rowing and safety equipment (complete as required by the 2005 race rules), all brand new in 2005 (no equipment was bought second hand). This kit will largely get you to the start line of your trans-Atlantic row.

However we understand that rowers may want to kit themselves out with new safety and / or electronic equipment. As such we are flexible on price and equipment offered and included with the boat.

Whatever option you chose, the boat is in an immaculate condition (with trailer) and ready and waiting to go out rowing training this summer.

Built in 2005 the boat made only one crossing and is in a very good shape. Bare boat, no equipment.  Capsized 150 miles from Antigua, the team was rescued,  the boat arrived ashore on her own, but the equipment was lost or damaged - that's why such a modest price.

'Ondine' is for sale with all equipment needed for an ocean row. She is in excellent shape and is performing very well in her current journey from Portugal to Costa Rica.

'Ondine' was built in 1997 by professional British boatbuilders. A complete marine survey was done 6 months ago and confirmed the boat's excellent condition. This is her third Atlantic crossing. Her previous 2 were Woodvale races (she placed 6th in the 2001 race and was widely acknowledged as the best built boat in the 1997 race).

Ocean Rowing boat



Challenge class plywood boat.
I am an overseas owner, who was unable to get expected sponsorship and decided to sell the boat on.

Priced for a quick sale. Bare boat, needs some repairs that's why low price.  It will be much cheaper and faster to repair this boat than to build a new one.

  TŰZHANGYA (Fire Ant)
One of a kind, super light, fast & safe boat for record aspirants
- Winner of  Hungarian Design Award 2007;

                   - Best of 2008 Adventure Honourees from National Geographic.


Built: 2006
Number of rowers: 1 - 3.
Length of trips done: 6.700 km (Cadiz – Grand Canaria – Antigua).
Duration between La Gomera and Antigua: 51 days 6 hours and 10 minutes.

Weight: 160 kg only (unloaded).
Length: 8,9 m.
Width: 1,65 m.
Draught: 2 m.

Overall condition: excellent, ready-to-go.

Super-light weight & high speed
We have built our boat of glass
fiber epoxy raisin, applying inbuilt Herex-foam sandwich structure and carbon-fibred special strengthening. As a result, the boat became super-light, extraordinary strong, reliable, storm-proof and safe.

The carefully selected materials, the special structure, our own design and workmanship have contributed a great deal to a record-level crossing over the Atlantic: 51 days 6 hours and 10 minutes (only 4 hour behind the current record to Antigua, although we started our trip more than 1 day rowing far from La Gomera).

Designed by Phil Morrison
Fabrication: Jamie Fabrizio, Global Boat Works
Electrics:  Peter Litton

Length 5.9 meters, Width 1.67 meters, Height 1.37 meters

In fitting the boat out we used only the best products and all brand new. The electrical system is built as 2 independent systems to eliminate single point failure, solar panels, batteries and regulators etc. are all German engineered. All lighting system front and aft cabin plus external navigation light are LED.

The boat has an easy to operate salt water ballast tank. All hatches are Lewmar. All locker seals are waterproof and fully dry.

Included with the boat are: see the list of equipment >>>

This is probably the lightest and fastest ocean rowing boat currently for sale. Although classed as a solo it is roomy enough for a pair with single rowing. It certainly is a boat that will break records in the future and two others are currently under construction. I beat the pair by 5 days and made it to Barbados where as they were rescued 60 mile south of the island, we were on similar tracks and so encountered similar weather, but they couldn’t catch me.

 She is built using foam strips and sheathed in glass and Kevlar. (if you go to www.solosprint.com and look at the photo gallery there are full stage pictures of the build)
The hull is perfect and the boat so well balanced it will drift/get blown dead down wind even in rough seas.
More details >>>

 It performed very well on her debut crossing this year, had some issues with the barnacle growth and anti fouling that wasn’t sorted until halfway across and also had some very testing weather. The second half was extremely fast and the last day I rowed 11 hours and covered 46 miles (4.2 average) I admit I saw land and could taste the beer, but had also been covering good distance for the previous few weeks.

I wasn’t very fit before the row and had an operation on my back 6 weeks before the start to ease some problems with my back (broke it when I was 10) I took it steady as I wasn’t out to break records, I was after enjoying the experience!

 Boat ready to go.

Part-built Morrison Pairs boat
epoxy and Kevlar


An opportunity to take over this boat at a significant discount to the present price and have it completed to your requirements.  The only thing you do not have any choice over is the colour - it’s white!  (It could be painted if necessary.)  The original project fell through when one of the partners dropped out.

The boat will be finished to our normal, immensely tough specification and CE-marked as a Category A Ocean Rowing Boat.  Unlike some of the older, plywood boats this should hold its second-hand value very well.  The boat is suitable for any ocean row and could be completed in plenty of time for sea time, display etc before the Atlantic 09 event.

Ocean Four Rowing boat





Record holder for the worlds roughest Sea - 32 Days Tasman Sea

One of two boats in the world, fantastically light, strong and stable. Built June 2007 by professional boat builder, it smashed the 67 day record for crossing the Tasman Sea from New Zealand to Australia coming in at 32 days with 10 days under sea anchor!

Constructed entirely of Duflex, the bare hull (ex-fittings and paint) weighs approx 350kgs. Its sister boat Vopak crossed the Atlantic in 60 days, narrowing missing the fastest record time.

 At 11 metres  long, it is extremely fast and stable, comfortably sleeping 3 in rear cabin, 1 forward cabin, and has 3 rowing positions. The only rowing boat built in Australia and crewed by Australians.

All equipment purchased in 2007, fully equipped for another record.

Ocean Rowing boat

The boat that rescued the British Stu and Ed !

According to Ed: "If we would have had a boat like yours, we would have broken the record."

According to Kenneth: "The most luxurious ocean rowboat I have ever seen"

The boat has been built privately using the advice and skills of professional builders.
Our goal: to build a boat which can survive the most extreme conditions and equipped to solve every problem.
After a crossing in 64 days we can say that she did more than well. Nothing broke down and she felt so safe that we were happy with storms (non rowing weather), because than we could escape from the routine and go for a long sleep.
Besides a few scratches in the paintwork she is ready to go. If you plan to start this year the deal also includes 200 portions of Adventure food.

Apart from all the technical equipment she comes complete with many extras:

Cardanic Jetboil cooking device. (nasi sateh in 90 seconds!)
Red sky leather mattress
Fishing gear
Spare rudder, rowing seats, slides.
Three rowing positions on one slide concept
A lot of, unasked for but free, advice
Ropes and fenders
Tiller pilot
Trailer (optional)
25 jerrycans
4 oars

Ocean Rowing boat plus trailer is for sale


Open to viewing and currently based
 in Petersfield, Hampshire
on a decent trailer which is included in the price


To request the contact information of the seller
please write to ORS Int.


Built: 2007
Crossings: Indian Ocean '09 (11 days at sea), Atlantic ocean '10 (80 days at sea).

During her scrutineering for the Atlantic race she was deemed one of the best prepared boats to enter a Woodvale race and remains in the same condition, with the same equipment as when she began the race. An extremely smart and well-cared for boat. Fully equipped to the 2009 Woodvale specification.

Heritage Explorer (formerly 'Doing Time') was built and fully fitted out of a cost of over £45,000 for the Indian Ocean Rowing Race 2009. She only completed 11 days at sea before pulling out of the race due to lost and broken equipment. She was then bought in July 2009 for the Atlantic Ocean Rowing race 2009/2010. Before entering the race she had:
a full re-spray (£4,500),
new batteries,
extra solar panels added (a total of 185w),
an additional 9ft para anchor added to go with the 12ft,
a spare water-maker (35e) added to go with the Katadyn 40e and survival watermakers.
In short, she was prepared to deal with any scenario and to ensure that the crossing was completed. Masses of spares of everything and masses of advice.
