Stämpfli currently offers three different hull shapes in the Four/Quad range. We have taken three of the most successful hull shapes in the world and produced light, stiff racing boats that have over the last 20 years won all the major races.
Stämpfli X4 (FISA Short Mould) is similar to the X2 Pair/Double. This is recognized as the fastest shape in its category for oarsmen and women weighing between 55kg (121.3 lb) and up to 80kg (176.4 lb).
It is extremely popular with juniors and all categories of lightweight rowing. In the past it has won numerous World and Olympic gold medals in its class and continues to dominate both international and national rowing regattas. It benefits from parallel sax boards that make frig rigging a simple operation.
Stämpfli High Performance boats are manufactured by using Nomex honeycomb sandwiched between high quality high modulus prepregnated carbon (96%) and glass fiber (4%), then heated under vacuum pressure and cured at 130°C (266°F). Stämpfli Club boats are manufactured by using Nomex honeycomb sandwiched between high quality prepregnated carbon (60%) and glass fiber (40%), then heated under vacuum pressure and cured at 130°C (266°F). The resulting bond is 6–8 times stronger than the "wet lay-up" used by other manufacturers.
This substantially increased strength of bond, together with the use of carbon fiber, makes the hull stiffer, more durable and far less susceptible to damage.
