The Finest Wooden Row Boats

We've been building boats for generations, and it’s reflected in the refined and elegant beauty of our crafts. You’ll feel the quality of workmanship in each stroke of the oar.

Each new Winchester is uniquely built to your specifications. Customize your craft with options including stain and hull color, extra seats, station backs, raised floor boards, and more.
