WinTech Racing: Crew Racing Shells and Recreational Rowing Boats
Single 21
Double/Pair 30



Explorer is a new class of recreational shells that incorporates the technology of our racing shells and the performance lineage of our entire racing fleet.

Designed by Klaus Filter as a teaching boat that's fun to row, it's also perfect for the recreational rower who wants optimal exercise while exploring the natural surroundings on the water.

The Explorer is stable, comfortable, strong and sleek. You'll also find the Explorer lighter, quicker, and stiffer than traditional recreational boats as it tracks well, maneuvers easily, and delivers speed typically seen in true racing shells. The new Quick Release rigger can be added or removed in just seconds, making the boat easy to carry and launch.

All levels of rowers will enjoy rowing the Explorer in all kinds of conditions. Perfect for family or club use and for adaptive rowers.

The Explorer 21 and 30 are the official FISA sanctioned rowing shells used for adaptive rowing in the World Championships and Paralympics Games.
