The VHP4+ combines our latest hull design with significant development in the coxswain’s cockpit. Optimized for weight and speed, the coxed four hulls offer best-in-class performance with the same development tools and testing protocols we use for our Olympic-class boats.
The cockpit comes with innovative foot stops that can be adjusted for leg length — no more bracing or sliding around. Adjustable headrests and back support allow every coxswain to find their most comfortable position. With a smooth action center single-cable steering system, all the coxswain has to do is “point and go.”
Hull Design Specifications
Advanced composite construction is at the heart of each VHP, and every hull is engineered for stiffness and resilience. We’ve worked with the best material suppliers in the world to create a boat fit for purpose and longevity. Vespoli hulls have always been known for their strength — now they’re built to last even better.
VHP Carbon Rigger
An upgrade in performance and looks!
NEW! Available on all VHP Coxed Fours, winter 2019. Not only are these riggers 12% lighter than the alloy version, they are also stiffer both torsionally and laterally. They feature a low profile design, titanium mounting sleeves, and Mil-A-8625 Type III hardcoat pin block, along with a UV resistant clear coating.
This rigger pairs with a NEW carbon, reversible backstay. One backstay can adjust to either side of the boat. It is lightweight and has an internal, Mil-A-8625 Type III hardcoated screw to adjust length.
VHP Carbon Snap-In Fin
New in spring 2019! This fin turns the boat on a dime, lessens drag, AND helps keep level during a turn! Change it out without tools or caulk. Fin features a breakaway tab to help prevent damage to the hull.
The VHP coxwain’s cockpit has addressed every concern. With adjustable footpegs, no more sliding backwards and forwards, or trying to find something to use as a foot brace. With a cushioned base, an adjustable backstrap for upper back and shoulder support, finished off with 4 axis adjustable head rest, every coxwain can find their most comfortable position. Added to this is a super smooth, center mount steering console with a low maintenance push/pull cable for precise steering.
Precision steering, comfort positioning, and electronics of your choice. This is the most advanced coxwain’s cockpit we’ve ever produced. Rowing a bow loaded coxed four has always been a special experience. The VHP cockpit takes this experience to a new level of comfort and performance.
With distinctly visible adjustments of footstretcher height, angle, and position, footplates and stretcher position can easily be changed without using additional tools. Athletes can see their settings and easily replicate them across different boats.
The Vespoli VHP variable shoe system has an adjustable heel and crossover strapping for fast turnaround times, ideal in a busy boathouse with more than one crew using a boat.
Vespoli VHP shoes are designed to maximize force production. Working closely with a world-class team of biomechanists and athletic foot specialists, we’ve crafted comfortable and fully customizable shoes with:
- wide-fitting toe box
- snug wraparound tongue
- arch support straps
- generous achilles cut-out
- open collar
Additional features include numerous drain holes, quick-drying mesh, and ventilated heel cups. Powerwedges on the toe and heel improve gluteal control and stability in the boat.
Vespoli’s lightweight riggers are manufactured with aircraft-grade aluminum and a drag-minimizing aerofoil shape. Our hardcoat anodized finish looks good, and acts tough for years of trouble-free service. Rowing riggers are swept down and across the hull, maximizing free space for the oar handle. Sculling riggers are available both stern and
Supplied with stainless steel pins and snap-on washers, height is easily adjustable, even on the water. Our new reversible backstays eliminate the need for dedicated port and starboard side backstays.
