Classic, Winning Good Looks

Classic, winning good looks

Modern classics, built by hand, these wooden boats evoke the timeless elegance of the tradition of rowing. But don’t be deceived by the romantic exterior. While the Mahogany Series may convey all the charm of the days of yore, it’s still not as much about winning good looks as it is about good looks winning!

Renowned Levator craftsmanship incorporates high-performance composite materials and forward-thinking design to ensure that the heart of a winner beats within these working tributes to the aesthetic and heritage of a sport that is also a way of life.
