Swift Racing loves diversity!
When we are asked to make something out of the ordinary, we try our best to help.
We are able to make 2+ and 3x by taking our super lightweight 4-, and fitting out with customised cockpits.
Our 2+s are suitable for crews from 60kg to 95kg.
Our 3x is suitable for crews from 67kg to 87kg.
In the same way, we are able to use our lightweight 8+ mould, fit it out with a customised cockpit, and have a 6+ that is suitable for crews from 80kg to 100kg.
(wng) = Wing rigger only.

- Boat is supplied with extra riggers and detatchable seat deck to convert from 4x(+) or 4x/+.
- The boat wil be a little heavier than a normal 408+, and trim will be different between 5x and 4x/+.

What is the most unusual boat we have built?
Without doubt, that is the “Push-me-pull-you” boat, that we built for New Zealand sculptor Scott Eady in 2009, and which was exhibited in Cambridge NZ, during the 2010 World Championships.
It is a 2x with 2 bows, no stern, and where the rowersface each other!
