Color and Customizations

We can build a boat just for you, and we can select from a range of colors and graphics. Have fun playing with different options to design a perfect boat. Evergreen Rowing has a  great design tool that enables our customers to try different colors and striping options on each model we sell.

Color

Colored gel coat can be used for your deck, your hull or both. This means you can have a colored deck on a white hull, a colored hull with a white deck (perhaps with other graphics on the deck), or both the deck and hull in a color other than white.

Generally, darker colors mean your boat will be heavier. This is because a dark gel coat must be applied thicker to ensure a true color. Yellow boats are the heaviest… though many feel they are also the prettiest! In addition, dark colors attract and show scratches. So, we recommend that dark colors (like black, red or blue) be used over relatively small areas. Here’s why:   we spray our gelcoat very thinly (4 – 6 mils) which is way under manufacturers specs. Our white is specially formulated with more pigment so that we can get away with this a little easier. Our boat weights are determined on this capability. So when we spray anything other than white, it has to be sprayed heavier just to get coverage – then of course that creates other issues with different cure rates etc (that have to do with the thickness and cure times of different gelcoat (the pigments are just one element that effects this)).

Addition of colors costs $400.

Graphics

Graphics are done with gel coat in the mold when the boat is built, and they are permanent and flush with the base color. They add color and make your boat distinctive without adding significant weight.

Centerline Pinstripe(s)

These extend from the bowball to the cockpit on the fore deck and from the end of the cockpit behind the stretcher to the stern on the aft deck. They are available on the Aero, 24 and Flyweight in any of the Maas colors. Double and triple pinstripes are possible. Cost for the double stripe is $300, and the triple stripe is $350.

Cockpit Side with Double Pin on Fore Deck

Available only on the Aero, this graphic extends the color of the pinstripe along the side of the cockpit.
Cost is $325.

Nordlund Aero cockpit peak

Cockpit Side with double pin on fore and aft decks

Available only on the Aero, this graphic extends the color from stem to stern without a break.

Cockpit Bevel with double pin on foredeck

Available only on the 24, this graphic extends the color of the pinstripe along a two inch wide bevel on the side of the cockpit.
Cost is $325.

Cockpit Bevel with double pin on fore and aft decks

Available only on the 24, this graphic extends the color of the pinstripe along a two inch wide bevel on the side of the cockpit and then the double pinstripe returns aft of the stretcher and continues to the stern.
Cost is $425.

Cockpit Stripe

Available on the Aero and 24, this is a subtle use of pinstriping to extend a line (or lines) from the bow along the centerline of the decks with a single line defining the top edge of the cockpit.
Cost is $350.

Steffy Stripe

Available on the Aero and 24 only, this is a double pinstripe from the bow to the peak of the cockpit at which point the pinstriping splits along both sides of the cockpit. At the aft end of the cockpit, each stripe continues straight toward the stern until it hits the edge of the deck. Another way to describe the Steffy Stripe is to think of it as the outline of the Shirwin Stripe… less bold but very dramatic!
Cost is $400.

Border Stripe

Available on the Aero and 24, this is a bold stripe along both borders of the deck from the bow to the stern.
Cost is $425.

Shirwin Stripe

Stripe color is in the cockpit then straight onto the deck toward the stern. Seat and footstretcher are usually the same color as the cockpit. Available on the Aero, 24 and Flyweight.
Cost is $450.

Insert Stripe

This is the reverse of the Shirwin Stripe, so the stripe color is only on the deck… mainly toward the bow. Available on the Aero, 24 and Flyweight.
Cost is $450.

Cockpit only

Stripe color is used only within the cockpit, including the seat and stretcher.
Cost is $450.
