Vespoli, World Class Racing Shells

Vespoli Boats

We start with science. Hydrodynamic research and the latest optimization techniques have allowed us to design a series of hull shapes that minimize both frictional and wave drag while maintaining a superior level of stability. We've teamed with America's Cup award-winning naval architects to bring you a complete range of hull shapes and sizes.

We build what you want. Choose from four hull shapes (VHP, E, D & Advantage), four models (V1, M2, Ultralite II & Performer), four hull sizes (S, M, L & XL) as well as a complete array of options with our cost-saving Elite Upgrade Packages. Check out our Build-A-Boat section to build a boat the way you want it.

Our regatta support is second to none. Our team of regional representatives has extensive backgrounds in rowing and coaching. They are conveniently located around the country to provide you with the legendary Team Vespoli service. These “trusted advisors” are enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and are eager to assist with parts, emergency repairs, demo boats and advice on everything from rigging to trailer driving. They attend more than 150 regattas per year, so you can count on them to be there for you when it matters: on race day. Contact your regional representative today!

We build our shells in the USA. All Vespoli boats are proudly built in New Haven, CT by our dedicated craftsmen who have over 400+ years of combined boat building expertise.

We stand behind them. Every Vespoli is backed by our 5 year Bow to Stern Warranty–the most comprehensive warranty in the industry.

We have the parts you need, when you need them. We have a full stock of replacement parts available 24/7 through our online store, and a 95% same-day ship rate, so you will be back on the water quickly.

We can make your boat look like new. We offer complete repair and refurbishment services. Your boat will be returned to its original specifications by the craftsmen who built it.

We meet the FISA Flotation Safety Standards. Safety starts with the boat you row. We are the first and only US boat builder to voluntarily adopt the FISA Flotation Standards. You can rest assured knowing that your boat has been tested and approved to keep rowers safe.
