Designed to Go Fast on Flat Water

The Peinert 26 brings elite performance and weight to a durable, affordable shell. True monocoque construction provides superior bow to stern stiffness for racing. Careful placement of the seat and foot stretchers lowers the rower's center of gravity to make this a fast hull that is never-the-less comfortable and easy to balance. Its durable 40% Kevlar / 60% carbon construction allows you to shrug off the occasional collisions with under water hazards. Ideal for rowers 150 to 210 pounds.

  • Construction: Hull and deck are both a single skin construction with a Kevlar outer layer and a carbon fiber inner layer. Additional layers reinforce stress points. A vertical vacuum-bagged Nomex honeycomb cored construction frame spans the middle 15 feet of the boat between hull and deck forming an I-beam. High performance vinyl-ester resin is nearly as strong as the best epoxies and is much tougher than any other resin.
  • Performance: These features combine to provide a hull as stiff as any top-level shell with unparalleled durability. Because the hull does not flex, it will not slow you down by losing its shape in the water, and it will not wear out and become soft over time. The Kevlar fabric is extremely resistant to tears and punctures.
  • Rigging: Adjustable for height, pitch, and spread. Anodized aluminum, removable with six nuts. Concept II oar locks. Adjustable tracks. Extremely rigid and durable, will not slip or go out of adjustment.
  • Seat: Molded dual action seat with 31 inch tracks. Stampfli pattern is the most comfortable that we have found.
  • Stretchers: Peinert designed fiberglass clog foot board with foam padded straps. Provides secure comfortable footing for all sizes of feet. Track shoes optional.
