Sleek lines and a beautiful sheer make the Duckling a delight to row and own. She is light and responsive and easily handled, providing great exercise for the single oarsman. As a three-panel per side design, she'll glide through the water nearly effortlessly.

At 95 lbs. the Duckling 17 is a very car-toppable boat, easy for one person to handle. Folding pattern oarlocks and eight foot spoon blade oars give her a lot of power.

A flotation seat compartment and the natural buoyancy of her wood make her unsinkable. For leisure rowing, or as an exercise machine, a more graceful and beautiful rowing boat would be hard to find.

The price of a Duckling 17 basic hull kit is $1295 $959. It includes hull panels CNC cut from BS1088 marine ply, the plans and assembly instructions. It is shipped on a 4' x 8' x 9" pallet weighing 450#.

This basic hull kit does not include dimensional lumber, as those are best fit on-site. It also does not include cloth or epoxy, we can provide pricing on request.
