Adirondack Guideboats debuted during the 19th century, were incredibly fast and remain among the fastest fixed seat rowboats ever built. The hull of our guideboat is an exact reproduction of our founder’s extremely rare 1892 J. H. Rushton Saranac Lake Guideboat. While guideboats share lines with canoes, they’re not. They are rowed and not paddled, capable of carrying great weight, heavenly on glassy smooth early morning rows while also noted for winning innumerable open ocean races. Guideboats feature two rowing positions, are capable of car topping and are comfortable for up to three. A remarkably handsome classic returns. Call 1-855-872-0868 to speak with one of our boat specialists for further information.
Each California built hull maintains the lines of our 19th century original. Hulls are of hand laid biaxial composite for heightened strength and grace, generously trimmed in hand joined, oil rubbed solid American cherry. Finished in our signature midnight blue, hand waxed to perfection. Three solid cherry fixed seats are centered in cane, and like the originals are built in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. Our boat is hand laid biaxial composite, extremely strong and light. Marine bronze cutwaters are fitted for added bow and stern longevity. We’ve cast the exclusive GBC oarlocks and four oar straps in bronze locally in Marin County. A pair of Canadian spruce oars are also included.
Prior to summering in the Hamptons or Tahoe became chic, the late 1800’s witnessed Adirondack Guideboats ferrying the likes of Morgan, Rockefeller and Post to their captain of industry Adirondack camps, deep woods lakeside retreats, each grander than the other. Without road let alone path but graced with endless and pristine lakes, the way in was by Guideboat. These beautifully proportioned craft were for sportsman and their guides as well as hauling materials to build the camps themselves. Guideboat builders proliferated with many small workshops meeting the increasing needs of sportsman and their guides.
