Lowe and Hennessy are attending the 2016 Australian Rowing Championships at SIRC
Recently, Sydney Boys High Rowing had to go through the process of replacing their boat trailer and towing vehicle. It’s a process many clubs have gone through at one time or another but it’s never easy. Legislation and requirements change regularly as do it seems the options available in terms of trailer design, especially over the typical replacement period timescale. This is where we found Lowe and Hennessy to be most helpful in providing us with a complete solution to our needs in terms of trailer capacity, recommendation on matching towing vehicle and total confidence that our rig is safe, sustainable and compliant with legislation. The trailer itself is superbly engineered, it fulfills our needs and has the capacity to continue to fulfill our needs for the foreseeable future. The rig is well balanced and easy to drive despite its considerable size. I would happily recommend Lowe and Hennessy to anyone faced with the job of choosing a new trailer.

We have 3 sets of Lowe and Hennessy sliding racks in our boatshed and they are nothing short of superb. Having rowed out of many sheds in my career, I’ve seen multiple variations on sliding racking set-ups and these win hands-down. The first 2 sets (of four racks) were installed by Tim who designed them to fit our particular shed construction. The final set (an eight rack) was designed and built in Adelaide on measurements taken by us and we installed it in about 3 hours with a team of 3 semi-skilled volunteers. It fitted perfectly, adjusted simply and easily to our specific requirements and has given us not a hitch in the subsequent 12 months. I’ve had many comments from our members on the solid construction and smooth motion of the racks, visitors are first impressed, then jealous. Great system and Tim is not only well-informed about his product, but is endlessly helpful, not to mention open to customised solutions. Highly recommend.

Working with Tim and the design team at Lowe and Hennessy was a pleasure with an outcome which, with the unique trailer project we had in mind, far outstripped our high expectations. Throughout the process communication was regular and nothing was too much trouble. All aspect of our needs were discussed including actual trailer dimensions, our personal program needs, logistics of our program in all its areas, etc. Right down to the delivery of the new trailer to Queensland from South Australia, Tim went out of his way to ensure our satisfaction with the product first and then whether we were happy with the result after delivery. I would recommend any prospective trailer procurement initiative be raised with the Lowe / Hennessy team.
John Callie – Director of Rowing at Churchie, Brisbane
Lowe and Hennessy supplied Firbank Grammar Rowing with both a boat trailer, motor boat dolly trailers and racking in the past few years. The level of customisation, consultation and after sales support has been nothing short of outstanding. I couldn’t recommend the team at Lowe and Hennessy enough if you are serious about having the best possible infrastructure for your rowing program.
