We partnered with some of the country's most experienced rowers and adventurers to produce the best long-distance rowing boat we could. Our expedition boat. Here is the result!
Oscar Kihlborg, Louise Rosenquist, Sören Kjellkvist, Hans Fridel, Christian Johannesson, Andreas Petersson…
All of them have contributed feedback from their expeditions during the journey as a result, Row VagaBond 4.7 is a rowing boat out of the ordinary. The result is a very well thought out long-distance rowing boat where everything sits right, and where our eye for detail has made this boat pretty perfect.
ROW VagaBond 4.7 extremely sea-safe, easy to handle and easy to operate.
As the name suggests, it is equipped to withstand the great adventure with features such as low centre of gravity, self-bailing and no less than three waterproof compartments.
Most notable, however, is the very well-turned hull which, together with details such as the characteristic leap and an effective stroke in the hull, provides a proud and dry passage even in really messy offshore weather.
But that is not to say that you have to go on the "big adventure" to value the VagaBond 4.7 features.
Whilst enjoying your rowing adventure, it's also a highly effective training tool for everyday exercise.
Basically, rowing with a sliding seat, is as you know, the most versatile and gentle form of exercise available.
