The Nicholas Bull Boathouse
Situated on the banks of the Exeter Canal at Countess Wear at the bottom of our 4.5km stretch The Nicholas Bull Boathouse was opened on Saturday 13 October 2012. Named after former University of Exeter Boat Club Captain Nicholas Bull (Chemistry, 1972) who was instrumental in the facility’s inception and construction.
The Boathouse is a wonderful space and it’s great to see it finished. These facilities create a real sense of purpose and will help the Club to build on their British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) successes.
EUBC are lucky enough to own over 30 shells ranging from single sculls up to eights. These include Empacher, Vespoli, Stämpfli, Kanghua and WinTech giving us the range to cater for every rower at EUBC.
EUBC also offers racking space for private singles to all members.
We also have Concept 2 Skinnys for all top crews and NK CoxBoxes and SpeedCoaches for our coxes.
