MAAS Classic Aero

The MAAS Classic Aero has since been discontinued in 2017, however there are used MAAS Classic Aeros available that will continue to be a joy to row for many years to come. Please check our used boat page!

The MAAS Winged Aero has all the great features of the MAAS Classic Aero but with a single wing.

The MAAS Classic Aero is a great all around shell. Stable enough for a dedicated novice to learn to row, the MAAS Aero has also enjoyed years of racing and touring.

At rowing clubs and schools across the United States, the MAAS Aero is commonly in heavy demand while other more expensive and less forgiving shells stay on the racks. 

A fully rigged weight of 40 lbs makes transportation easy and at 21’3″, car topping is no problem.

Aesthetically, the MAAS Aero’s design is very clean and uncluttered and is enhanced by the beautifully crafted carbon fiber composite riggers. 

The MAAS Aero offers the quick responsive feel of MAAS’s higher performance boats yet is less demanding when the water is rough. In the words of Olympic Rowing Medalist Dick Lyon, “They’re just plain fun to row.”
