Freedom boats Recreational / Open water
Swifts recreational/open water boats (1x and
2x/-) are built using FISAs design for adaptive
boats. 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.
They are useful for introducing beginners to rowing, as recreational boats, for touring, and as an alternative to always training in a fine racing shell, especially in open water or rougher conditions, or for heavier loading and less concern with balance (floating ergometer!). Please note that these are not sea boats, which are designed and built to deal with large waves, and are self bailing, usually with an open stern/transom.
They are stable due to their greater width/beam and flat bottoms, they track well due to their length, and also have a good turn of speed. The single was even used in 2007 in the Czech junior championships by a novice rower, and helped her get a 3rd place finish!

In order to make these boats convertible to adaptive boats, they are only supplied with our aluminium wing riggers. In fact, the boats are built exactly the same way as the adaptive boats. For details please read the adaptive page.

Combined adaptive and recreational boats
In Spring 2010 we stopped offering on our price
list the combined adaptive and recreational 1x
and 2x. This does not mean that you cannot use
these boats for both purposes.
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
and recreational, so it is easy to change the rails)
Riggers? (if you order an adaptive boat with
especially narrow span etc, you may
need to order extra riggers for recreational use)
