About Liteboat

Rowing made easy

Today, Liteboat is a world leader in the manufacture of recreational rowing boats. Our objective is to provide rowing boats that are easy to use, very stable and lightweight. We offer 100% French handmade rowing boats, which simplify rowing on any body of water (whether on a river, a lake or the sea) and due to their lightness facilitate the transport of the boat on a car roof.

Our product range is composed of various types and models of recreational rowing boats, but also coastal or row&sail boats, that combine design, performance, stability, safety and innovation. Our rowing boats will give you the best advantage on your sports outings and your trips to discover and explore nature.

Handmade with passion

Liteboats are the result of hours of dedicated work by our passionate team. Each boat requires more than 100 stages, and expert workers. From the gelcoating to the carbon layers cutout, from the polishing to the last sticker applied, we take care of every detail to provide you with a perfect high-quality boat. To build light rowing boats, Liteboat team uses an innovative building technique: vacuum infusion. It is a process where resin is injected in mold under a vacuum. There is no air in the composite sandwich, and, above all, the exact quantity of resin injected is controlled. As a result, our boats benefit from a superior quality over traditionally hand lay-up built boats.
