The single scull designed for senior men that bridges the gap between the F14, 47 and 39 models.
Tailored for men who render strength and technique an inseparable combination. An extremely reduced wetted surface, very high average speed and a keel curvature studied in accordance with the Aliante rigger.
This is the single scull F70.

What was missing from amongst the F14 (85–100 kg), F47 (90–100 kg) and F39 (95–110 kg) hulls was a boat that could exploit both high-level strength and technique, with a stern-heavy trim that could make the most of the catch phase and the advantages of the Aliante configuration.
Indeed, the bow of the F70 has a less significant volume in favour of a wider stern to take advantage of the catch phase. This is contrary to the F39, which instead favours athletes who significantly exploit the finish phase or who have the defect of a backstroke with challenging angles.
The bow, however, maintains a greater volume than those of the F14 and F47 – which have a penetrating profile suitable for situations with wave motion – making the F70 the ideal hull for rowing on calm water basins.
The F70’s trim is slightly stern-heavy and any sinking is limited. All is designed to deliver maximum peak speed with a significantly more stable average speed. The increase in speed is also aided by the significant decrease in the wetted surface area.
In order to get the most out of these characteristics, the optimal rowing range is 38–42.
The keel has a more banana-shape than the F14 and F47 hulls. This modification was necessary in order to take full advantage of the Aliante rigger.
The lift developed by the keel volumes in the astern portion allows for greater support at the catch phase. This, in addition to forgiving some small technical flaws in the catch phase, makes it possible to give power to the initial phase of rowing. The phase in which the Aliante configuration performs best.
The stern deck design unites the cockpit without any bevelling. This detail increases the longitudinal bending stiffness, thus giving an unprecedented solidity to the boat.
And it adds an aesthetic detail never introduced before the F69 and F70 single sculls.
