HULL DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION


Award Winning Boat Designer

 WinTech Racing’s Chief Designer Klaus Filter is one of the sport’s most decorated and accomplished racing shell designers. Over the past 50 years, Filter-designed boats have won more international gold medals than any other hull.

Biomechanic Waterline Design

Filter was the only slender hull designer to empirically test and account for human impact on rowing shells. He calculated and applied extensive data to refine the shape, waterline, and thus the wetted surface accordingly. What you get is a pragmatic hull that’s optimised for thru-water performance when rowed. 

WinTech’s engineering team uses the latest CAD software to design and analyse the hull and cockpit to optimise performance, ergonomics and aesthetic design. The same process is applied to the design and construction of the smaller parts and fittings too.

Medalist Construction

Laminated Nomex honeycomb core sandwiched between a high-modulus uni-directional pre-preg carbon fibre, carbon exterior and interior. Additional carbon fibre reinforcement on gunwales. Heat cured in mold. 

Sandwich construction boats are lighter and stiffer than their single-skin counterparts due to a honeycomb core, making them more suited to high performance use.

Unique Self Bailing System

WinTech’s self-bailing feature is a huge advantage over non-self bailing shells especially where large quantities of water are taken on in rough conditions or even heavy rain. A few hard strokes can quickly eject those unwanted extra kilos. The boat will remain buoyant even when completely swamped and the crew has stopped rowing as the design meets and exceeds FISA guidelines on buoyancy.

Customisation

Here at Oarsport we believe that your boat should be exactly that, yours! All boats come as standard with our "WinTech Red" stripe and trim colouring. However, if you would like to customise your boat to match your school, club or university colours please specify at the time of ordering with a RAL code. We will even produce a boat name and ID number so that your boat is ready for the water as soon as you take delivery.
