If we don't have what you're looking for, there's a good chance we can find it
Firstboat is your only source for completely renewed race-ready shells
We thoroughly examine each hull for any imperfections and repair all boats to like-new condition.
The actual hull of a rowing shell has many more miles to give than its components do – the parts that wear out the fastest are the shoes, hardware, and riggers. We evaluate each shell individually, replace the worn parts, and clean and buff the hull so it’s ready for many more seasons to come. By the time the “Firstboat” sticker goes on the stern, it may just be mistaken for a brand new boat.
We have a constant stream of pre-owned boats coming into the shop from North American’s premier manufacturers, so if we don’t have what you’re looking for right now, be sure to check our inventory list again in a week or so. Or, use our “Request a Boat” page to let us know what you need so we can keep our eyes open for your next racing shell.
Firstboat is run by Pocock Racing Shells. With over 100 years experience in boat building, repairs, sales, and support, buying a Firstboat means you’ll have the full backing of a company that knows equipment better than anyone else in the world. Give one of our reps a call. We’d love to help you find your next pre-owned racing shell.
At Firstboat, we want to make it possible for anyone to get started with rowing. We have focused our efforts on obtaining a wide range of boats to choose from, so no matter what you are looking for, you can find it here. If you are looking for something specific, just let us know and we would be glad to see what we can do.
