The lines made famous by this classic rowing boat can be traced back for hundreds of years.The most distinctive feature of a Whitehall row boat is it’s “wineglass” shaped stern. The Whitehall Spirit 14 and the Whitehall Spirit 17 fully display the elegance of their heritage. They also retain their historic beam or width dimensions, enabling them to carry four to five adults safely and handle rough water with ease.
The full length keel keeps these row boats tracking straight while under way, very useful for distance rowing in choppy water. This hull shape has been perfected for maximum speed and minimum effort in all conditions providing the amazing seaworthiness for which Whitehall rowing boats are celebrated.
