Johnston Racing was established in 1996. The Company was founded on a vision to develop state of the art rowing technology, quality products and service, at an affordable price, commencing within their home state of South Australia. Now a well established and respected business Johnston Racing has expanded into interstate and overseas markets with a complete range of boats and oars.
We are committed to continually develop our products using knowledge gained from our experience in production, through feedback and recommendations from our customers, and through regular testing and development with the assistance of all levels of athletes and coaches.

Johnston Racing believe that the use of Carbon Fibre in varying weaves is the superior material to build very stiff and on-weight racing shells. When cored with Aramid honeycomb, hull and panel stiffness is World class. The hulls, decks and canvass of our "Elite" boats are built with a combination of unidirectional, plain weave and twill weave carbon fibre. When combined with thick sheets of honeycomb we can guarantee superior longitudinal and torsional stiffness. To maximise stiffness, the underdeck bulkheads are shaped to support the deck laterally and longitudinally. All boats are suppied with sealed bulkheads under the slides. This ensures the boat floats above the water when swamped, and provides a more buoyant object to hold onto when swamped or capsized. The sealed bulkheads enable Johnston Racing boats to comply with FISA flotation rules.
All Johnston Racing boats are capable of handling all weather conditions because of the extra height given by the aerofoil wing rigger. Using camlock technology, riggers can be attached and detached from the boat in a matter of seconds without the use of tools. Also, camlocks are used on footstretchers to simplify and speed up adjustments - forwards, backwards, steeper, flatter, higher and lower.
The hull and canvasses of all our boats are prepared with a marine grade white gel coat, however we can produce boats in any colour, its your choice!
An independent quality control process ensures all boats are of the highest quality and consistently finished from boat to boat before leaving the factory.
