Chez Boileau. 


Nelo applied their deep understanding of carbon sporting shells to developing a new breed of sculling boat which fitted in exactly with what we were looking for. These boats are stable, highly responsive and fun to scull. Being slightly shorter than most other top-end boats, they make you immediately conscious of timing and pressure discrepancies which you might not be aware of in other boats. These characteristics make them great for training, learning and racing.

We have six new Nelo singles: two for 60kg scullers, two for 75kg scullers and two 90kg crews and one 75kg double.
