The Explorer has been created by Rannoch Adventure's founder, Charlie Pitcher, and world renowned naval architect Phil Morrison.
With its GRP construction and a polished gelcoat finish, the Explorer is lighter and cheaper than injection moulded boats and, as a result, has significantly superior and more exciting performance and handling characteristics.
The Explorer has a very practical and comfortable layout with shaped riggers, a large waterproof compartment for dry storage, and is suitable for solo or pairs rowers.
With its high topsides and hard chine, the Explorer excels in open and coastal conditions and is remarkably dry compared to any other skiff on the market. The hull's deep V entry and flat aft sections make it a fast yet stable thoroughbred even in choppy seas, but when you pull hard in flat water, it runs like a fast train on tracks!
