Coastal Boat Types

Coastal boats are designed with three main points in mind: stability in rough conditions, no water retention, and performance. That gives you a boat significantly heavier and wider than a flat water racing shell, designed to let any water that comes in drain out.

The categories are mainly sculling: 1x, 2x, 4x for Men, Women or 2x mixed.
