Ready to try the best wakeless launch on the market?  Contact us now to set up a test drive of the Placid Wakeless Launch at regattas throughout the East coast this spring.

Three reasons why the Placid Wakeless Launch is better than the rest:

1. Practicality:

  • Reasonably proportioned at 17' 2" X 6' 2"
  • Maneuvers like a jon boat, not a yacht
  • Low decks for getting rowers in and out of the water
  • Spacious cockpit for 3 adults
  • Perfect for officiating regattas and races

2. Safety

  • Unsinkable, foam filled pontoons
  • Integrated grab rail for rescue purposes
  • Stable design for a small boat

3. Value

  • Great up front pricing
  • Lowest cost of ownership because of low maintenance
  • Multiple accessories available



Our pontoons are constructed from durable Weather X, an innovative material that has excellent impact and abrasion resistance as well as a bright and brilliant finish. The pontoons are then topped off with two-part polyurethane expanding foam, a closed cell foam which will not absorb water over time.

The decks of the Placid are constructed of a space age synthetic called Thermalite, covered with a non-skid coating and attached to a sturdy aluminum frame.

Standard accessories on the Placid include steering wheel, steering cable, two cup holders, console with front seat and rear bench seat.  Rear bench seat is on hinges for easy storage of equipment.


Normal capacity is one driver and one passenger with space for up to two passengers.  Please note that low wake performance suffers with additional passengers and that unlike other wakeless launch manufacturers, Revolution Rowing makes no claims about the rescue capacity of its launches.


The ideal power plant for the Placid is a 15 horsepower engine, but the Placid can also accept a 9.9 or 20 horsepower engine as well. 


Approximately 1:00 splits over a 500 meter course.  Turning radius of 27 meters (2 rowing lanes)


The Placid can be outfitted with a windshield, nav lights, bimini top, and/or a steel trailer.
