Coxed Fours: You train too hard to leave things to chance!

We start with science. Vespoli coxed four hull designs are the creation of the 2003 2007 America’s Cup winning Naval Architect, Manolo Ruiz De Elvira. Considered among the world’s best naval architects, Manolo’s revolutionary designs utilize the latest in hull optimization techniques and computational fluid dynamics. To learn more about De Elvira’s research and results, see Boat science: How do hulls from different makers compare? and watch the video Racing Shell Hull Design: What really matters? .

We build what you want. You have a choice of: hull shapes (E or Advantage), models (V1, M2, Ultralite or Performer), rigger style (Wing or Euro side mount), hull sizes (S, M L) as well as a complete array of options with our Elite Upgrade Packages. Check out our new build a boat section to build a boat the way you want it.

We build our shells in the USA. We have modern facilities, state of the art equipment and the talent to build exactly what you need without the hassle and added costs of importing. All Vespoli boats are proudly built and serviced by our team of experienced and dedicated craftsmen and women in New Haven, CT, USA. If you damage your boat it can be repaired to original specifications with OEM parts by the people who built it!

We stand behind them. Every Vespoli is backed by our 5 year Bow to Stern Warranty –the most comprehensive in the industry–and our support is second to none. We’ll help keep you on the water and get you back there faster should disaster strike with OEM parts available 24/7 through our on-line store and complete repair service available at our factory.

Hull Designs (4+)

E Hull: The result of research, testing and experience!

The E hull shape is the ultimate racing shell design. The significant performance factor in racing shell design is the reduction of wetted surface. Manolo Ruiz de Elvira’s unique America’s Cup-tested designs incorporate the least wetted surface of any racing shell while actually increasing stability and virtually eliminating the negative effects of a pitching hull. The E hull is the result of extensive research and experimentation by the best minds in naval architecture and composite structures. Read about the science behind our E hulls and watch the video Racing Shell Hull Design: What really matters? .

E hull design coxed fours come in three size specific hull shapes (S, M L), three models (V1, M2 or Ultralite) and with your choice of Wing (V1 M2) or Euro side mount (V1, M2, Ultralite) riggers. E hull coxed fours are bow coxed only.

Advantage Hull: Another way to Win!

When stability is your primary goal, the Advantage hull is the design for you. The Advantage stern coxed four is 25-40% more stable than other hull shapes while increasing drag by less than 1%, or about 1 boat length. That’s a margin easily made up by the Advantage’s easy-to-row shape which prevents many of the technical mistakes caused by harder-to-balance boats. The Advantage design is quickly becoming the favorite of junior, college and master programs that use the same equipment for the developmental and competitive programs. (See Boat science: How do hulls from different makers compare?) .

The Advantage coxed four is a uni-size hull that fits rowers averaging 140-190 pounds. Advantage hulls come in four models (V1, M2, Ultralite and Performer) with Euro side mount riggers. Advantage coxed fours are stern coxed only.
