Freedom boats - Adaptive 1x and 2x
Swifts adaptive boats (1x and 2x) are built using FISAs design for adaptive boats, and have been approved by FISA for use in international competition. They are available in 2 grades of construction, either Club A or Club B, both of which are sandwich construction, so providing stiffness and durability, which is especially important in these flat bottomed boats, while at the same time keeping the weight manageable.

Riggers & Pontoons/Floats
In order to make the cockpit as accessible
as possible, both the 1x and 2x are built to
take our aluminium wing riggers.
In order to allow ideal positioning of the pin (line of work), all adaptive 1x and 2x are built with 6 sets of holes to attach the wing rigger to the boat. The 2nd hole from the stern is the default position. The rigger can be moved aft by 30mm, changing the pin position by the same amount. It can also be moved towards the bow, by 30, 60, 90 or 120mm. The reason to want to move the pin position relative to the rower is to enable a better oar angle at the catch, leading to greater boat speed, as well as more enjoyment.
In Spring 2010 we changed our mould for 1x and 2x so as to increase the length of the cockpit, giving more room for adjustment of the stretcher towards the stern.
As with all our boats, it is also possible to specify your requirement for pin position, span and work height, when ordering a boat.
In line with FISAs rules of racing, only the adaptive 1x is supplied with pontoons/floats. Our pontoons/floats are designed to be used on any rigger that uses a rigger block like our ali wing and ali Euro riggers, ie. with a long hole, that is 12mm wide.

3. Standard Adaptive 2x: The FISA Standard Adaptive 2x has a fixed seat and MAY have stabilizing pontoons.
4. Standard Adaptive 1x: The FISA Standard Adaptive 1x has a fixed seat and MUST have stabilizing pontoons.
Seat deck, seat rails, seats and back supports
Our adaptive seat rail is of a very simple design. It is a C shaped profile, with a large surface on the base, to spread the load over the seat deck. Additionally, each rail is fixed to the seat deck with 7 bolts, to ensure a solid connection between the rail and boat.
Into this C profile we slide extra strong T shaped bolts, which together with hex locking nuts are used to fix the seat or back support to the seat rails (4 bolts, 1 for each corner). This is not a quick release system, but it does have 2 advantages, in that it can be adjusted with 1 hand, and that when all nuts are tightened, there is zero play/slack.
In Spring 2010 we started to offer 2 types of
seat, both of which are independent of the back
support. One is a low profile version of our
previous aluminium frame and soft cushion seat
(the previous version will be discontinued), and
the other is a very low profile, simple, flat
carbon/PVC foam seat to which can be added your
own cushioning. Both seats can be used with leg
straps. Seat position is adjustable fore and
aft, along the length of the seat rail.
Also in Spring 2010 we started to offer 2 types of back support. Both are based on our previous aluminium and soft cushion frame, but with the back support completely independent of the seat. One will be wide bodied, and the other will have a smaller width towards the top, which smaller rowers will find allows better pull through with the arms. The position of the seat back is adjustable fore and aft, along the length of the seat rail, as well as being adjustable for angle.
Please choose the most suitable for your situation and safety.

Adaptive 1x and 2x boat weights
|Club A||Club B||Variation|
The weights shown above include the following:
Aluminium frame seat.
Aluminium frame back support (wide type).
Pair of pontoons/floats.
- 2 of aluminium frame seats.
In 2009 FISA revised the boat weights for the adaptive 1x (from 22kg to 24kg) and 2x (from 36kg to 37kg)
Combined adaptive and recreational boats
If you wish to order a combined boat, please first order the boat as an adaptive version. Then you will need to add the following spare parts;
- Seats (300mm wide)
- Seat rails (the holes in the seat deck for attaching rails will be the same for adaptive and recreational, so it is easy to change the rails)
- Riggers? (if you order an adaptive boat with an especially narrow span etc, you may need to order extra riggers for recreational use)
