The Evolution of an Extraordinary Design in Rowing Shells

Our single and double shells have dominated the National Rowing Championships and National Rowing Team trials, and our shells have carried hundreds of athletes to victory in Head races, Masters’, and Veterans’ competitions. We are proud we could help these rowers achieve victory on the race course.

We believe your Van Dusen rowing shell can give you a substantial advantage in achieving your own goal, whether this is obtaining an Olympic gold medal or just the feeling of flying on the water under your own power.

CHOOSING YOUR SHELL

Van Dusen racing shells are designed for athletes competing at top international levels, but their lightness, strength and responsiveness have also commended them to rowers who value their engineering excellence, durability, and functional grace.

Hull Sizes are based on weight class. Each Van Dusen hull size is designed to minimize hydrodynamic resistance and to optimize athletic performance for rowers in a particular weight class.
