MAAS Single Scull
Hull construction is exceptional - carbon fiber, (very stiff and light), direct size "S" glass (for outstanding impact resistance), and vinyl ester resin (epoxy-like toughness without the need for high temperature curing).
Deflection tests show the MAAS SINGLE SCULL to be comparable with an Empacher. Overall, in terms of stiffness, weight, and adjustability, the MAAS SINGLE SCULL can match boats costing thousands of dollars more.
The MAAS SINGLE is easily repaired, a fact greatly appreciated by anyone who has attempted to repair a KEVLAR-skinned, honeycomb shell.
MAAS's innovative design and construction is demonstrated at the critical hull-to-deck joint. An external lip provides a very strong bond, increased longitudinal stiffness and, in choppy water, less water on deck.
The CALF-SAVER calf guard, a protective piece installed across the track ends, is designed to prevent "boat bite." You can't row at 100% in an uncomfortable shell.
The rigger is a state of the art, one-piece aluminum wing, with epoxy powder coat. It is fully adjustable for height, spread, pitch, and work-through-the-pin.
Weight, 33 lbs., fully rigged or 31.5 lbs. with Performance Package - carbon fiber/ball bearing seat, titanium oarlock pins, carbon fiber foot stretchers.
Width, 12 inches at waterline. Length, 27'1"
Maximum rower weight: 225 lbs
NOTE: Unlike the MAAS 24 and AERO, the dimensions of the MAAS SINGLE SCULL are consistent with top of the line racing singles. The MAAS SINGLE SCULL is not recommended for open-water rowing or for beginning scullers.
