Ocean Rowing Boats

Share this page:

The NOMEN will be taking on the Mediterranean in identical 24-foot ocean rowing boats designed by Justin Adkin. The boats are designed to self-right if they capsize and to withstand the worst weather that the ocean can throw at them.

Each boat has 2 water tight cabins on each end with the rowing cockpit in the middle. Generally one cabin is used for storage and the other as the accommodation where the crew can rest while they are not rowing. Solar panels placed over each one of the cabins  power the onboard navigation system as well as a watermaker which will convert sea water in drinking water.

As classic class boats with ‘V-shaped’ hulls, the boats used in the NOMAN races are very stable, are blown less by the wind compared to their flat bottom counterparts, and also provide greater protection to the crews from following seas (wave directions that match the heading of the boat).

The boats are:

  • 7.1m long
  • 1.9m wide
  • Fully laden weighing in excess of 1,100kg (1.1 tons)
