Filippi Boats


Introduction to Filippi rowing shells

The Story

The story of the Filippi boatyard dates all the way back to 1980, when Filippi Lido opened his own boat building business, which manufactured wooden rowing boats. The breakthrough came in the second half of the eighties, when the boatbuilders boats were used in the World Championship in 1986 Nottingham, in 1987 Copenhagen in coxless quad and in  the Seoul Olympics as well and won gold medal in all.

Today, the Filippi boatyard employs cca. 60 workers for boat building and the old wooden boats were replaced with the well-known blue and white painted carbon/kevlar boats, which are built in the Filippi Lido srls 2500 square meters large shipyard in Donoratico.

Today, the traditional wooden ships were replaced by carbon fiber and honeycomb sandwich boats which are made with vacuum bag technology, which are burned out at high -temperature.

In 1997 the company was awarded the ISO 9000 quality certificate. This paved the way for Filippi to ensure that all of the everexpanding international clientele and the exclusive resellers of the five continents are served with consistently high quality of products, due to the clearly defined processes .

Every ship that leaves Donoratico is in full compliance with the 26 rules of the system for which every process has a responsibile.

It is Lido Filippis hallmark that boats created by his boat builders must be with the dedication that only perfect boats can leave the boatyard.

This devotion is felt most clearly in the use of after-sales services, where customer satisfaction is the main objective.

The development of the boat-building techniques, with the smallest attention to detail and an excellent price/quality ratio is known and associated worldwide with the Filippi name. The company's constant participation in international rowing competitions and customers in a service mode, in which expectations are individually and choose the best boat is a huge product line completes the experience.

Filippi boat design and forms

filippi boatyard unlike many other boat builders spends lot of resources on research and always use the latest technologies, this a good example of this are the traditional shaped and wing carbon fibre riggers.

While previously tested in collaboration with the research institute INSEE diving and hydrodynamic properties of the shells, in the water channel, today, thanks to the advanced hydrodynamic softwares this is not needed anymore. In cooperation with the Applied Mathematics Department of the University of Ferrara and the Milan Pilytechnic, a simulation software has been developed that allows individuals to test the best boats without actually building the boat for the teams. 

Having the best hydrodynamic properties selected to create an entire ship design software, which provides a summary of each measurement point. A model was created by removing unnecessary items from the plansheets and adding the necessary elements to make the same ship.

Once the model is ready for the next step in the preparation of the boat mould itself.
This knowledge is currently embodied in the form of 35 different ships, not counting the boats that are not designed for racing, but training. Progress never stops at Filippi!

The results

It is no coincidence that the teams competing in Filippi boats for the past 20 years, have won more than 400 medals at the World Championships and the Olympic Games.
In 2010, 79 silver medals were won with Filippi boats at FISA World Championships in various age groups of athletes from different nations, 29 of them gold. The 2010 World Championships in Karapiro 99 teams choose Filippi, which made it the largest "fleet" was present at the event. In 2017 in Sarasota 65% of the medals were won in Filippi boats (see teams in blue n the table below).
