Jolly2 Double Recreational Rowing Boat

The Jolly2 will be a development of our Jolly1, allowing two rowers to get out onto the water. If you prefer our double to the single then please do email us and let us know as she will only make it into production if enough people register an interest. In return we'll ensure you are kept up to date regarding production and all registerred people will be offered preference and a generous discount on the first boats.


Folding Riggers: Our folding rigger arrangement has been optimised for strength, weight and practicality. When folded they have been arranged to tuck just outboard of the tracks so as to provide the minimum of intrusion making coming alongside and getting in and out of the boat simple and safe.  Our development boat proved just how practical this feature is by eliminating all of the pre-rigging normally required – fold the riggers and skulls inboard for storing and outboard for using the boat - simple!  

Standard Club and Racing Rigger Geometry: For those already rowing or for those who intend to row in 'fine' club training & competition boats, the Jolly Boat has the same standard rigging geometry. Novices can learn and practice the various aspect of the stoke in a relaxed and unhurried environment of the Jolly Boat, then progress into the narrower 'fine' club boats. Experienced rowers can also enjoy the Jolly boat as it gives them access to a much broader spectrum of waters in which to enjoy rowing.

The Jolly Boat has been designed with a stronger hull and deck structure perfect for cruising, tours and the kids!

Self-Bailing Hull: The deck drains to the bilge sump where a self-bailer can be used to drain away any collected water, even when stationary!

Side Storage Deck Elastic: Used for keeping items to hand when rowing, i.e. jumpers, drinks, charts, etc.

Forward and Aft Crew Seating: The deck mould has been designed with forward and aft seating moulded in for additional passenges - so no excuse for that gentle row up river for a quiet picnic with friends.

Double Bulkheads: The hull is kept rigid and split into three buoyancy compartments by two bulkheads, with the forward and aft compartments forming large, natural storage areas. This arrangment along with the self bailing capacity satisfy current FISA Coastal Rowing Regualtions.

Side Buoyancy: There is over 500kg of reserve buoyancy split between three compartments (formed by the two bulkheads). By careful design buoyancy has been kept in the sides as well as forward and aft to maintain stability even when swamped. In the unlikely event of a capsize or when boarding from the water the additional side buoyancy also ensures minimum water ingress, improving stability and safety.

Dry Storage Lockers: The two forward and aft compartments form natural storage lockers accessed through two standard 6” watertight access hatches, with the option of fitting additional 10” hatches for storage of camping and touring equipment.

Mooring Cleat Location: The forward and aft mooring cleats are located within reach of the rower to allow easy mooring when coming along side.

Adjustable Foot Plate: The foot plate is adjustable to allow the correct set-up for the shortest and tallest rowers.

Gunnel Return: The gunnel (deck/hull edge) has been specifically designed to turn water travelling up the hull, away and down - reducing spray and water on the deck as well as increasing gunnel strength. This arrangement is also idea for carrying the boat when ashore, so no need for fixed handles.

Bow Eye: The bow eye is fitted as standard and allows for the securing of the boat for towing when afloat or tieing down when ashore or on a trailer.

Transom Design: The transom has been kept flat allowing the simple addition of wood pads when fitting a Rudder or Outboard Motor.

Keel Band: The Keel has been fitted with a low-friction keel band to help protect the hull during beaching and allow easier manoeuvring and storage of the boat.

Quality: Every aspect from design and manufacture to appearance and finish has been carefully considered, ensuring the best quality and long life.
