Which Racing Boat Should I Choose?

Posted on: 27th July, 2017 by Oar Sport

WinTech offers four different construction options and five different hull sizes to suit virtually every budget and crew weight. The mould shape stays the same whichever construction you choose so it is all down to the materials used.

At the end of the day it is all down to personal preference, however, each construction is aimed with a particular athlete and budget in mind:



Competitor boats have bulletproof build quality and construction in that they are a forgiving single skin hull with excellent impact resistance under the water line as shown in the video below:



Whilst learning to row you are more likely to damage a boat. Falling in or hitting something seem to be commonplace so the more robust the boat, the better. This makes the competitor range the right choice for crews learning to row and getting out to do their first race. They represent excellent value for money but the larger crew boats do carry a few extra kilos over the rest of the models on offer.



The Kevlar/Carbon/Honeycomb construction of the International is the choice of most top quality boat builders. Stiff and durable construction makes a boat that fits most needs from the beginner to those wanting international success. The International can also be specified with the latest aluminium bow wing rigger technology.



Full carbon construction makes for the stiffest hull. Coupled with an aluminium rigger gives extra durability for clubs, universities, and schools who tend not to be the most careful when landing and loading trailers. This rigger construction will give extra peace of mind in this aspect.



This is WinTech’s top of the range boat. Full carbon construction for the hull and rigger make for the stiffest and fastest shell. A boat for the best and those aspiring to the very top of our sport whilst still offering outstanding value for money, reasonably priced for the technology and materials used in their construction. Need I say more.

I hope this has helps in your decision making process. However our sales team are always on hand to help and advise.
