Belfast Boat Club was founded in 1887 and is home to oarsmen and women of all different ages and abilities. Based on the banks of the River Lagan the boathouse is a state of the art facility housing a fleet of modern eights, fours, quads, pairs, double and single sculls. Some members also own their own private boats and these are racked at the club for a small fee. In addition to the ergometers in the gym the boat house also has its own ergo room with 6 well maintained Concept 2 ergometers.
