Reach higher. Push beyond limits.
Rowing is a sport like no other. As a rower, you can see, hear and feel the efforts every stroke. The good, the bad, the ugly. When it’s good, it’s very, very good. And when it’s bad…well, that’s what keeps you coming back for more. Seeking perfection. Day in and day out. Early in the a.m. or late into the p.m. The addictive motion of speed and unity tied intricately with good or bad technique, all the variables that affect speed and performance.
What an athlete can count on is consistent performance from our Vespoli High Performance (VHP) boats. They’ll never hold you back because they’re designed to move through the water and lift higher during the recovery cycle, maximizing every stroke you take. Crews in our boats have turned in winning performances at the World Championships and the Olympics, during the spring sprint and fall head racing seasons, and at just about every major regatta up and down the east and west coasts.
We’ve been a major player in the rowing scene since our boats made their debut in the early 80s after Mike Vespoli, the company’s founder and former member of the 1975 World Championship eight, saw how fast a carbon-fiber boat could move while he was at Henley-Upon-Thames: U.K. Shortly after, he began importing carbocraft boats and then became one of the first U.S. boat-builders to use this light-as-air material in the construction of rowing shells.
Over the years, thousands of rowers have risen to the challenge—pushing themselves beyond their limits to achieve their goals in Vespoli boats.There’s a reason why almost every boathouse in the country has a Vespoli on its rack and chances are, many of today’s coaches started their racing careers in one.
Memories of rowing last a lifetime. We are committed to making yours as much about the experience as the boat you rowed in.
