Product Inquiry


For over 20 years WaterRower® has been combining stylish design, hand crafted workmanship and ethically sourced materials. WaterRower originate from Rhode Island, USA where it still manufactures its high quality rowing machines since the early 1980's.


Patent Flywheel Design

The WaterRower's patented WaterFlywheel has been designed to emulate the exact dynamics as a boat moving through water; the objective of the exercise of rowing.The outcome is an exercise with uncanny similarity to the 'real thing. 'In much the same way as an oarsperson levers the boat through the water with each stroke, the WaterRower user levers the Water around in the tank. An increase in speed will increase this resistance and require an increase in effort/intensity.

WaterRower® have been making commercial rowing machines for years, but now you can use one of these incredible machines from the comfort of your own home. The WaterRower® A1 has been handcrafted from solid Ash which provides you with a machine that is robust enough to cope with loads of up to 125kg. This incredible piece of engineering has been designed in such a way to absorb sound which leads to a much quieter, more relaxing rowing experience and for reasons of ecology, all our woods are harvested from replenishable forests. It has been hand finished using Danish Oil which helps preserve the wood and make it water resistant. Overall this is one of our favourite rowing machines, it not only functions better than you would expect for a product at this price point, it also looks great too. The WaterRower® A1 also comes with a workout monitor, an aluminium monorail with a medium duty seat and is compact enough for easy storage.

The A1 Monitor has been designed as a simpler version of WaterRower's S4 Monitors. It has been designed for easy QuickStart of most functions, simply press the OK/on button and away you row. The A1 Monitor displays intensity in m/s (meters per second), mph (mile per hour), /500m (time per 500 meters), /2km (time per 2 kilometers), watts and Kcalories per hour. It Displays Strokerate, Distance in units of meters, kilometers, miles and total strokes and duration.
