The Rannoch Explorer is the creation of adventurer Charlie Pitcher, founder of Rannoch Adventure, the world’s #1 ocean rowing company based in Essex.The company has designed and built over 60 ocean boats to date and over 50 Guinness World Records have been given to Rannoch crews for ocean crossings.
Charlie recognised that not everyone has the opportunity or desire to spend months at sea crossing an ocean so it was only a matter of time before he came up with the ultimate rowing boat for shorter trips.
"I’ve always dreamed of making this special rowing boat a reality. We just needed to clock up enough miles and experience to understand what sort of boat would suit everyone, not just a small bunch of high octane ocean rowing adventurers. Hail the Explorer! I am really excited about the opportunities this high performance, stable, affordable boat offers anyone keen on getting out on the open water.
We put our entire focus on just the one sport and, being based in Burnham on Crouch, we have access to the water 24/7 - critical when it comes to testing boats and letting our clients try our their new boats. Almost all of the trade that is involved with the construction of Rannoch boats is local to Burnham itself - something I am extremely proud of."
