Empacher's yellow rowing shells have dominated the medal tables and the finals of the Olympics and the FISA World Rowing Championships. The yellow Empacher rowing boats have a remarkable resale value and are highly durable.
Since 1923, Empacher have been producing the World's highest quality rowing boats and rowing equipment. For generations, Empacher rowing boats have stood for quality and reliability in rowing. Some of the World's best trained master boat builders skilfully craft every boat with accuracy and German precision. Johnston Racing is proud to be the only Australian distributor for, what we believe, are the best boats in the world.
The outer and inner skin are made of a kevlar / carbon fibre reinforced sandwich material with nomex honeycomb. The frames are reinforced with carbon fibre. The highest quality epoxy resin, as used in the aerospace industry, is used throughout. Vacuum bag technique is used to guarantee the bonding between the outer layers and the sandwich core. The combination of aramidfibre (kevlar) and epoxy resin results in a tear and impact resistance of the outer skin, that cannot be matched with other materials for the same weight.
