This “all water” single sculling rowboat offers stability, comfort, and safety that is not possible in any rowing shell and you can even take along a friend or your dog. Rowing with a sliding seat uses 800 calories per hour, about double that of jogging without stress on the knees, joints, or connective tissues. For those who desire a low-impact, full-body workout, rowing a Whitehall Spirit® 14 sculling rowboat fitted with a sliding seat unit, bronze outriggers, and 9’6″ sculls is the perfect solution. Some owners fish for salmon or muskie, some use their boats as ships’ shoreboats, and others use them as their personal exercise machines. This boat is ideal for lakes and oceans, and is of course excellent for sculling in calm water and handles wind and waves with ease.

Rowing is perfectly feasible in locations that are way too rough for a racing scull or open water shell – the Whitehall is right at home in wind and waves. Two or three strokes take her up to speed – the long, smooth glide needs to be experienced to be believed. A speed of four to 5 knots (6 to 9 km/h) can be maintained for hours with little to no strain on the rower. Almost anyone can row this boat well with no difficulty handling it.

The Whitehall Spirit’s sliding seat unit and/or aft rowing seat can be installed or removed from this rowboat in a minute or two. On a sailing model, the slide seat unit is mounted in a position over top of the centerboard. The hinged bronze outriggers self-stow by folding inboard when not in use, resting on a copper coin inset into the solid teak fixed seat. (See the photo album).

All Whitehall Spirit® boats feature built-in buoyancy forward and aft, and is shown here with the optional removable solid teak floorboard system. An “Ocean Tender Floor” is available as well, which adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy to the boat (an important safety feature).


Owner Dale Colclasure, of Little Rock, Arkansas says:

“Thanks, Whitehall, for taking the time to make such a fine investment. An investment in my exercise regimen and one I will be able to pass down to my grandkids, who also enjoy riding with me.”


The hull is hand-laid fiberglass, impeccably finished inside and out. The woodwork is solid teak finished in hand-rubbed oil, meaning maintenance is not an issue, and will require only about three hours per year. Copper rivets and roves are used on the gunnel, and the metal fittings are custom-cast bronze. The photo album below shows close-up details of the fine workmanship.
