Maas 27

Designed primarily as a club racer the Maas 27 is exceptionally stable, stiff and durable at a weight close to shells costing thousands of dollars more.

Carbon fiber/fiberglass composite construction with a carbon fiber/foam core I-beam creates a very tough and rigid boat that is easily repaired if damaged.

The aluminum wing rigger allows for a lowering of the sculler’s center of gravity, greatly enhancing stability without the lackluster performance normally associated with stable boats. This ease of set up translates to greater speed when the rower cannot consistently apply full power in choppy water or when there is less than perfect sculler balance.

Highly adjustable rigging and our unique flared hull design allow the Maas 27 to fit a wide range of people (see design and constructions section of this website). Scullers ranging in weight from 130 lbs. to 220 lbs. successfully race this boat.

It’s light. It’s easy to set up. It’s fast, stiff and durable. A carbon fiber club single at an affordable price.
