King Racing Eight

 For school & university crews

Available in 4+ and 8+ the King is a staple of US Collegiate & Junior Rowing Programmes. This smooth running, fast yet stable hull holds course records at many regattas and head races including Head of the Charles. It’s long waterline helps fight boat check and porpoising, the large fin helps stabilise your crew and the higher rocker with responsive rudder makes this hull easy to manoeuvre, perfect for curvy venues.

The combination of speed, stability and manoeuvrability make this an ideal choice for university and college crews who often have less water time compared to other programmes.

Rigger Options:  Aluminium or Carbon Bow or Stern Mounted
