2 Person Ocean Rower

We are proud to support Andras Bakos and rowing partner Erik Harrewijn in their upcoming trans-Atlantic record attempt.

Andras is passionate about protecting and preserving our environment and giving our future generations the best opportunities in life. Andras approached us looking to develop a unique rowing vessel capable of setting a record crossing time- and so providing a way to raise public awareness for this important cause.

Our solution was Samson; an innovative wave piercing rowing boat optimised for ocean crossings. The vessel is designed for maximum efficiency – a crucial feature for a vessel powered by muscle alone. Refined geometry gives this vessel the ability to self-right, while a forward canard assists with course keeping.

Departing from New York City, the pair will set out across the Atlantic Ocean, rowing almost 4000 miles to their destination in Paris. When completed, their journey will be the first crossing in the West to East direction. The attempt is expected to take between 60-80 days depending on weather.
