The club, which is based at Thorpe Island in Thorpe St Andrew, will use the boats for its 'learn to row' programme.
Club captain Shelagh Tubby said: "We have a steady stream of novices from our successful learn to row program who will use the boats until they build the confidence, agility, fitness and river craft skills to transition to a fine racing single scull.
"The club also supports an active recreational rowing section, who will also have the opportunity to use these safe stable boats."
