DISCOVER THE LITEXP

a unique concept combining sailing and rowing

Sails or oars? You will choose. If there is a little wind, not sure that you will go faster by rowing.
What is certain is that the pleasure of glide will be there, solo or duo, for beautiful sporty or contemplative moments.

A row and sail boat is a unique opportunity to explore nature… Go around the small island at the other end of the lake and get your boat on the beach. Leave the bay, go to the lighthouse at the cape and go up along the coast, before the bivouac planned in one of these creeks where few people go. Crisscross the archipelago and sail from island to island for a great weekend. Your LiteXP on its trailer, you will choose the starting point of your expeditions, you will put it in the water as you would have done for a family dinghy.

The LiteXP boats combine a real rowing station and easy-to-use “cat-boat” type rigging. These boats can be used both with the force of the arms, or the wind, depending on the conditions. The mainsail can be supplemented with a genaker when you have the benefit of downwinds. The rowing station being part of Liteboat’s DNA, it is comfortable and efficient, but also completely removable for greater ergonomics when sailing…

LiteXP range is made up of two boats:

  • The LiteXP 20, 20 feet (about 6m)
  • The LiteXP 16, 16 feet (about 5m)

These two boats have the same characteristics as the other Liteboats:

  • LIGHT with a weight of 180kg (Lite XP20) or 100kg (Lite XP16) fully equipped including sail, mast and oars
  • STABLE thanks to the design of the hull by Sam Manuard
  • EASY to rigg in 5 minutes with a catboat setup

These boats are designed by Sam Manuard, naval architect from Brittany, who designed the fastest offshore racing sailboats in the world. This modern design gives our boats efficient gliding, both sailing or rowing.

“The concept of row&sail is very old. With Liteboat, we started from a blank page to redesign a modern version of these boats. We wanted a very light and very efficient boat thanks to taut lines, allowing to limit the drag. LiteXPs don’t need a lot of sail area to go fast”
