WaterRower Oxbridge in American Cherrywood

The WaterRower Oxbridge rowing machine is handcrafted in solid cherry wood. Like all woods, cherry may vary in color from a reddish-brown to deep red. Cherry wood, like all woods used in WaterRower construction, is a premium hardwood with incredible longevity and dimensional stability. It will also darken in color with exposure to light. For this reason, all WaterRower cherry wood components are kept in light free rooms to protect from shadowing. A new WaterRower Oxbridge will therefore appear quite light in color. The wood will however darken over time reaching a rich reddish hue.

Each Oxbridge WaterRower is treated with three coats of Danish Oil providing an exceptionally deep luster and brilliant finish. Wood is an excellent material for this application due to its ability to absorb sound and vibration enhancing the WaterRower's smooth, quiet operation. 


The S4 Monitor is designed to be user-friendly while providing ample advanced functionality. The monitor displays Time, Distance, Speed/Intensity, Stroke Rate and Heart Rate (with optional sensor).

ALSO INCLUDES:  Home Training DVD, Owners Manual, Syphon Pump, Water Purification Tablets, Allen Key

What maintenance is required?

The WaterRower has been designed to require little maintenance. The only regular maintenance is to keep an eye on the quality of water in the tank. Purification tablets are recommended to be added every 3-6 months. Purification tablets are supplied by your local WaterRower office for the life of your machine. Unlike other rowing machines, the WaterRower has no cogs and chains and so no oiling is required.

Is there a lot of assembly involved?

Assembly of each model requires joining the main components together. Assembly should not take longer than 45minutes. All that is required is a 5mm allen wrench. Videos can be found here. Once assembled, water will need to be added to the tank. This can be done either using the hand syphon pump provided or hose. Please, refer to the manuals for water level recommendations. Be careful not to overfill the tank.

What are the differences between the models?

There are various models of the WaterRower, each are designed to suit a specific environment. There are no major mechanical differences to each model, just the hard wood used and the finish.

The Natural Series is made out of solid Ash wood, the WaterRower Natural is finished with a Honey Oak Stain and Danish Oil and the WaterRower Club is finished with Black and Rose Stain and Danish Oil.

The Designer Series consists of the Oxbridge, Classic and S1. The Oxbridge is constructed in solid Cherry wood and the Classic in solid American Black Walnut wood, both finished with Danish Oil. The S1 model has similar dimensions to the wooden models but the frame is made from Stainless Steel.

The M1 series consists of the Lo Rise and Hi Rise version, designed primarily for the commercial environment. The Hi Rise version has elevated legs to provide the WaterRower with elevated seating position and an easy on, easy off entry point. Both M1 models are constructed in aluminum and powder-coated in a variety of customer color options.

The A1 Series is different to all of the above models in that is it a mono-rail design, the Natural, Designer and M1 series are all dual rail.  This A1 Studio version is engineered for use in group-x classes such as Indo-Row and ShockWave. This series is constructed out of solid Ash wood and aluminum rail. The Studio version, the Ash wood is finished with a Honey Oak Stain and Danish Oil, where the Home version, the Ash wood is finished with only Danish Oil.

What is needed to use the heart rate function on the S4 monitor?

For Heart Rate to be displayed on the S4 monitor two additional items are required - a chest belt and a receiver plug-in connector. WaterRower offers a choice of the Polar Analog Heart Rate Monitoring Kit and the ANT+ Digital Heart Rate Monitoring Kit. Each kit comprises of the chest belt and receiver plug in connector.
