Janousek & Stampfli Racing Boats

Stampfli 8

We manufacture 2 different boat constructions:


Janouseks have a full carbon outerskin and are constructed primarily of prepregnated glass fibre with a honeycomb core which creates a balanced blend of stiffness, weight, durability and cost.  The longevity of Janouseks is well known and underlined by the fact that the second Janousek ever made in 1981 was refurbished in January 2014 having already done a sterling 33 years of service.  Janouseks are ideal for clubs who are looking for a versatile fleet of boats that will last a lifetime or individuals who are looking for good value for money and re-sale prospects.  Janouseks come fitted with 3 stay aluminium riggers or aluminium wing riggers, wooden seats, aluminium footstretchers and Janousek rowing shoes.

 STÄMPFLI 2 FullColor_RGB_Sml_AW

Stämpflis are constructed of prepregnated carbon fibre with a honeycomb core which creates a light and stiff construction.  Stämpflis are available with 3 stay aluminium aerofoil riggers and aluminium wing riggers with availability of carbon sculling wing riggers (bow or stern mounted) across the range.

Boat Shape

All of our doubles and coxless pairs, fours and quads boat shapes are available in both constructions, we use the S1 single scull hull shape for the Janousek single scull and our S8 shape is used for both constructions of eights and octuples.  The details of our shapes are available on the specific boat size pages.
