Double – C2X

The new Salani coastal rowing 2x follows the same development concepts of CR1X. The CR2X scull represents the latest development in design, and security in coastal rowing. We tackle the task of designing a new coastal boat from scratch and adopting innovative concepts without compromise in safety, and strength, we built the fastest shell in the market.

This Coastal boat has been developed, thanks the help of Marco Fabbi coastal rower and several times Italian Goldmedalist , who knows all aspects and functionings of coastal boats, and the great experience and know-how of Leonardo and Elia Salani, owner of the boat yard. Together they gave all the feedback that the chief designer Luca di Rosa needed to create this new masterpiece that we are proud to introduce in the market.
These are the most important technical information:

Lenght 7,5 mt.
Width 1,0 mt.
Weight 60 kg.
Series 100% full Carbon\ carbon+glass\ ECOTech
Accordance FISA Coastal Rowing regulations 2013

The coastal project has been developmet around important goals, at Salani:

  • Hull : the fisrt thing that jump to the eyes the particular shape of the hull. The unique design of the thin bow and flat stern bring right away to your mind the lines of the America’s Cup catamaran. During planning of this boat, the main goal was to obtain the fastest possible shape in any water condition. To do so we needed minimizing the pitch, while increasing the balance. That is why we looked to the latest and the greatest in boat design to achieve this goal. For this reason we built the wider stern which guarantee stability and balance and a wave-piercing bow. Its shape, unique in its genre, allows less pitch and reduce the drag. This kind of bow has excellent performances against the wind even when its an awkward cross wind. The design of the shape of the stern permits a good dynamic balance which reduces the BWL and without increasing drastically the drag in really rough water and it also give a better control of the boat on heavy sea. Better balance means that all you have to do is to focus on strokes technique without care about heelings and speed losses. With the C2X you can achieve incredible performances in every conditions from completely flat water to the roughest sea conditions.
  • Hull structure: The sandwich of the hull grants high stiffness and permitts better trasmisions of rower strenght to whole boat encrising its reactivity and saving the rower’s energy. Salani staff and its coworker, highly specialized in composite working, have collaborated togheter in plannig the assembly sistem of the hull. The new hull assembling way allows to remain in weight limits rules and in the meanwhile stretchs the life cycle of the boat: it rapresents another point of streght of Salani coastal, submitted to many stresses during its use.
  • Safety: ¬†actually there is a lot of misinformation in Coastal Rowing world about safety, since boat yards use to underline the performance sides of boats. Salani wants to be the first boatyard to invest resources in safety onboard coastal rowing boat.The safety Salani’s philosophy has covers several elements. In project step has been planned the subdivision of the hull in different volumes, unlinked between them. For this reason water infiltrations will not occur into the hull. Every compartment has dotated of small watertight door which allows their inspection inside. Another important feature regarding safety is the pulling point. It is situated at bow as FISA safety rules claim. Any protuberance are set at bow out the boat. Infact is composed by Spectra a strong and soft ring anchored to the internal structure of boat: the innovation is the guarantee with sea rescue in cases of bow, rings and bollard crashing.
  • Fittings: ¬†Fittings set up in the new Coastal Rowing series are the same of olimpics boats. We talk about foot plates, tracks, oarlocks and watertight door. The foots plate has the strap belt on which are sewed soft seathes and an easy release foots way in case of overturning . The anodized aluminium wing rigger gives stiffnes and protection for scratches and corrosions caused by brakish enviroment. Salani grants the standards regolations of Olimpic series on Coastal Rowing with quick release set on the wing rigger, as optional, to facilitate boat transports.
