For an additional cost, it is possible to upgrade our Elite boats to “Full Carbon”, which means that all
skins will be 100% carbon from end to end. This results in even greater stiffness, especially for longer
boats, such as 4s and 8s.

Shapes

The single most important factor to consider when choosing a racing boat is the design weight. To maximise your crew’s speed it is essential that they row in a boat that is designed for their weight.
As at February 2010, we have 21 different moulds for “Olympic” type racing boats (7 for 1s, 6 for 2s, 5 for 4s, and 3 for 8s), all based on tried and tested designs, with proven track records, including FISA's own designs for singles, doubles and fours.

With our range of 21 moulds, which is perhaps the most of any builder, not only will you be rowing in a boat that was designed for a crew of your weight, and is not a "cut down" version of some larger boat, but it is likely that you will have a choice of suitable moulds.

Boat Construction

Honeycomb or foam sandwich hulls have now become standard for rowing boat construction. The method of construction used throughout the industry is surprisingly similar. A selection of carbon, kevlar and fiberglass cloths are bonded to a core material, usually honeycomb or coremat, these are then heat-cured under vacuum at high temperatures. The standard method used by the majority of high quality boat builders, is however labor intensive. China has adopted all the recent technological advances, and benefits from both a history of experience, and low labor costs. For these simple reasons, China is rising to the top in the boat building industry.
