Rower's World

Canada's best selection of

recreational rowing


Rowers World Crest

Rower's World is based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and is operated by John Gordon. Rower's World is dedicated to introducing the sport of recreational rowing.

John Gordon, Rowers World

Our current selection of quality rowing equipment features the Australian Waterdart (Edon TS515), and the Oar Board.

Our rowing shells and equipment are ideal for fun at the cottage, open water touring, fitness training or aerobic conditioning.  These self propelled craft are reminiscent of a slower, quieter time.  Like the original canoes of my ancestry, these boats allow you to be on the open water and enjoy nature.

Rower's World has a long history in Canada, dating back to 1858.  As a fourth generation Gordon continuing in the boat business, I am proud to be able to use my grandfather's original "Gordon Boatworks" logo as part of our Rowers World crest.  This logo represents family tradition, dedication to quality and commitment to our customers.

We hope you will enjoy browsing through our website.  We pay great attention to the quality of our services.  Whether your goal is to lose weight, tone your body, or just have fun then recreational rowing is for you.  Our passion is health and fitness and our goal is to be your source for recreational rowing, health and vitality.
