VHP8

Vespoli hulls have always been known for their strength and speed. 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.

The VHP optimizes hull and wave drag while lifting higher out of the water during the recovery cycle, further reducing contact area in the water. Crews experience faster acceleration during the drive and more run during recovery, and are better able to translate their effort into speed. Using the latest in computational fluid dynamics and data collection techniques, Vespoli’s naval architects analyzed the pitch, speed, and wetted surface of the VHP hulls throughout the entirety of the stroke cycle. The end result: crews enjoy faster acceleration during the drive and more run on recovery.

Hull Design Specifications

Footstretcher

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.

Shoes 

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.

Riggers 

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  
bow-mounted.

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.
