Our story starts with a friendly invitation

Our love of rowing began when some friends invited us to join them at a local “learn to row” class. While our friends haven’t rowed again, we haven’t stopped rowing since.
Off the water, Tom quickly took to the maintenance and equipment, and when he couldn’t find navigation lights for the boats that were designed to function well in the rowing environment, he began to design his own.

The lights are phenomenal and have significantly increased our hull visibility and vastly increased our safety on the water — you can quote me on that! Thank you for an excellent product with great support back up.

This launch is the best coaching platform that I have used in over 20 years as a Division I rowing coach. Once I coached in one, I knew that I had to get them for my staff. We currently have 4 in Omaha. Please come to Omaha and take a test drive

- Daniel Chipps, Head Coach, Creighton Women's Rowing

We love the Kraftlight Beacons, easy to use and highly reliable, they are now a staple for any morning or evening rows. We are very happy with the RS16s. Their small turning radius is helpful on our narrower river, they are easy to maintain and transport and provide an excellent safe platform to coach from.

- Kit Bennett, Director of Rowing and Varsity Head Coach, Skyline Crew

Some navigational lights are extremely subpar—dim and unable to view from all angles. Not so for the RowKraft lights—they are the only lights you need to communicate your pathway and intentions effectively to other boats on the water. If it’s dark out, row with RowKraft navigational lights, or not at all!

- Matt Zatorski, Founder & CEO, Long Term Rower Development

Customer service by owners Barb and Tom Kraft is amazing and personalized! When the green side of one of our beloved bow lights failed, RowKraft happily accepted and serviced the light, and sent it back way quicker than expected. Love to support family-operated businesses that stand behind their stuff!

- Naomi Woodard, Cortlandt Community Rowing Association
