Generally a long narrow rowing boat (varying from 1 to 8 persons) is refered to as a "rowing shell" or simply "a shell"
The most well known rowing event at the Olympic games involves the eight (8+) rowing shell. This shell is very fast with eight oarsmen producing a huge amount of power propelling this 65-foot boat.
In rowing a long narrow boat is called a shell. This can be either an 8+, a 4+, 4, a double, and a single.
There need to be 8 rowers to row an 8, 4 for a 4 or quad, 2 for a pair or double, and just one for a single. This is true for practice as well as racing. A rowing race is called a regatta.
