Classic Boat Supplies is proud to bring to you the best wooden oars available "off the shelf" in Australia. Manufactured in British Columbia by Barkley Sound Oars & Paddles, each one of these premium-grade wooden oars is a work of art. Add the perfect finishing touch to your boat with a pair of these beautiful sitka spruce oars.
Sitka spruce allows oars to be strong yet light, making handling easy even in the longer oar lengths and minimising the effort needed for rowing.
We have timber oars for every application with both spoon blade and straight blade oars available in a range of lengths. The super-efficient spoon blade oar features a sculptured, fine blade and an epoxy tip for strength. The curved blade provides the serious rower with a highly-efficient oar that looks equally good on modern and tradtional boats. Our straight blade oars are just as beautiful and are well-suited for work boats and tenders where high-performance is less important. The flat blade is thicker to take the knocks. All oars have turned handles to give you the best-possible rowing experience, and are finished in two coats of thick marine-grade lacquer.
For some time in Australia the range of wooden oars has been limited to mass-produced heavy pine oars. Many wooden boat builders opt to make their own suffering the associated time, expense and delay getting their boat on the water. Now there is a viable alternative - sitka spruce timber oars form Barkley Sound Oar & Paddle. Purchase these oars online or visit our Sydney warehouse to see these beautiful timber oars first hand.
Dress your new timber oars up with traditional genuine leather oar collars or go for a modern look with tough Scotty plastic oar collars, also made in Canada.
