Building on the practical, seaworthy tradition established by Laser in the 1980's, Rossiter has purchased the molds and production rights, improved the performance and functionality, and is building the Laser Sport Shell once again.
This quality craft combines the features of the original Laser with the seaworthiness and safety of a full deck boat. With a beam of 28 inches, its enhanced stability makes it ideal for beginners and heavyweights alike. The sliding seat rig is also light and strong with a fully adjustable foot stretcher for folks of all sizes. The outriggers are made of stainless steel, and can be removed quickly to help make transportation or storage very easy, and the Concept II oarlocks are fully adjustable.
Since bringing the shell back into production, we've made a few minor improvements, adjusting the location of the seat tracks and watertight storage hatch and sock, to improve comfort and convenience. We've also eliminated the plastic skeg and integrated it right into the hull, getting rid of the original designs only real shortcoming.
As with all Rossiter Boats, the Laser Sport Shells are built for each individual customer and, as such, you can choose from a range of color combinations to match your tastes. You also have the option of Kevlar if you would like yours a little lighter
