Welcome to Classic Rowboat Co. We are located near Sandpoint, in beautiful Northern Idaho. Spawned by masterful builders over three decades ago, we combine passion and attention to detail to produce rowing boats known for their unmatched quality and appearance. Our objective is to offer timeless rowing boats or the finest design to be used and enjoyed by all generations of boating enthusiasts. Rowing is a fun and enjoyable activity for all ages and can develop into a heathy, lifelong passion, as so many people have discovered. Rowing these boats is an experience that rejuvenates the body, mind, and senses, while connecting you with family and friends. Many people have questions when deciding which type of rowing boat is best suited to their needs.

If you are thinking about buying your first row boat you may have many questions. For exampla, transportation is often a consideration that needs to be taken into account. Theses row boats can be easily towed behind most cars. In the US it is not uncommon to see these boats towed behind large RVs, but the smaller versions of motorhomes from Europe, like those on may represent more of problem. Whatever your question we are here to help. You will find us to be knowledgeable and personable about the rowing boats that we build, as well as many other models, both traditional and non-traditional.

Currently we build 3 models of rowing boats. The 11′ 6″ Herreshoff Columbia, the 16′ 2″ Boston Whitehall, and the 14’8″ wooden McKenzie River Drift Boat. All of these boats represent the best of American design. We think you will agree. Experience the difference a true rowing boat has to offer.
