Alden 18 - Single or Double



The Alden 18 is the most versatile open water rowing shell. It offers all the benefits of the Alden 16, plus the ability to easily set up for double or single person rowing. The Alden 18 uses the patented Alden Oarmaster drop in unt. Weighing only 18 lb, this self-contained sliding seat unit can be inserted and removed in seconds making it quite easy to convert the boat from a single to double, or even to take a passenger.

The 18 features the same hull design as the Alden 16, but is a bit longer with a stiffening section to maintain rigidity when loaded. The large cockpit has extra space for storage and touring. The double has been rowed all over the world, including an coastal adventure from Alaska to Washington State, loaded with gear. Even on shorter trips, you will appreciate this shell's stability and versatility.
