The MAAS Flyweight is designed as a high performance open water racer. For lightweight rowers, the Flyweight is substantially faster than any other open water shell, including the MAAS 24. The Flyweight is also an exciting and responsive shell for advanced recreational rowers and an excellent trainer for flat water racers. Not a cut down “big boat’, the MAAS Flyweight has designed a completely new shell; the hull shape, foot stretcher, cockpit size and rigging geometry are all scaled specifically for rowers under 140 lbs.
At a rigged weight of 35 lbs (32 for the carbon series) the Flyweight is very easy to carry.
If you’ve been getting by with a shell that’s designed for rowers up to 100 lbs heavier, maybe it’s time to try a shell that’s built just for you.
