Do you know what a Downeast Peapod is? Funny enough, it actually does have something to do with the green vegetable. It is a double-ended rowboat that resembles a pod of peas. More importantly, it is a lot of fun to use. And, even youngsters can get the hang of rowing these hand-crafted boats—which Sparkman & Stephens has re-engineered for modern day.
The Downeast Peapod, which dates back decades, will be even faster and easier to row with the modifications that Sparkman & Stephens has made. Equally noteworthy, the boats are being built right here in the United States.
