The Banacek is a 5m (16ft) recreational rowing skiff. It combines the geometry and equipment of an Olympic rowing scull with a stable, seaworthy and maintenance free fiberglass hull. The Banacek is easily transported on roof racks and can be stored in your garage or boatshed.
If you are looking for a classic sport which is fun and gives you an aerobic workout the Banacek is it.
Recreational rowing as a sport is growing in popularity. Each year hundreds of people turn to it as a preferred form of exercise.
Joggers are looking at rowing as an alternative because the motions are fluid, and there is none of the pounding associated with running. Rowing in fact is an injury free sport which can be enjoyed for a lifetime by young and old. The sliding seat promotes total aerobic conditioning.
Up till now, anyone wanting to get into rowing as a sport had to choose between an unstable racing shell or a heavy wooden rowboat. Now there is another option, the Banacek by Dinghy Sports, the perfect answer for a recreational rowing craft.
