Fabulous, Rare, Alden "Martin Trainer" rowing shell!
Excellent boat for learning and perfecting the Art of "sculling", or rowing a shell for one person.
Comes with adjustable Alden Oarmaster ll rigging and fantastic Cantiere Navale Donratico lightweight expertly crafted wood oars from Italy.
Oar blades are 100% functional but could use attention for cosmetic purposes at some point.
I have rowed with these in exactly the same condition for 12 years.

Boat is for any weight, any size, any gender, and any ability.
You won't find another set up like this west of Connecticut!
$1,850 or best offer NOW $1450 obo
Comes with custom made, heavy duty, 5' x 25' waterproof tarpaulin to cover boat (cost $300 new).
Serious inquiries only.
If you want to test it in the lake close to my house, you will need a rack or a trailer. Not willing to allow boat testing for joy rides or for folks to determine if rowing is for them or not. Again, serious buyers only. I bought this boat used without testing it on the water and have enjoyed its performance for more than 12 years.

The boat is 100% functional and does not need repairs.
Like all used boats, some cosmetic scuffs, dings and some areas of lower luster in fiberglass paint job present. No deep gouges in hull. Lighter blue marks on hull are touch up paint from previous owners.

I rowed "8's" / "crew" in college at the University of San Diego and wanted to learn how to row scull later in life. This boat gave me that skill.
I am now looking to row a narrower, faster shell so I am selling my Martin Trainer to buy my next level boat.

Thanks for looking. This boat will change your life! It changed mine!

From Alden website:
The Alden Martin is the fastest 20 foot long shell using the removable Oarmaster sliding seat rowing unit. The Alden Martin’s cockpit coaming makes it a very dry shell to row, even in less than ideal conditions. The dropped stern eliminates the need for a skeg, so you can beach the hull without fear of damage and the cockpit has plenty of room for gear.

SPECIFICATIONS:
Length: 20′ 6″
Beam: 19″ at waterline; overall beam 22″
Hull Weight: 50 lbs without the Oarmaster drop in unit
Capacity: 275 lbs
