Rowing a Whitehall Spirit® “All Water” Solo 14® rowboat will change your life for the better.
- Slide seat rowing is one of the best ways to get in perfect shape and stay that way.
- This “all water” single scull 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.
- This rowboat is ideal for oceans, lakes or rivers. It’s excellent for sculling in calm water and also handles perfectly in wind and waves. Built-in buoyancy makes it virtually unsinkable.
- It’s ergonomically correct. Expert rowers and novices alike all love how it feels and handles.
- The Solo 14 is the world’s first and only thermoformed co-polymer sculling boat. Tough and light and virtually maintenance free. Its UV proof hull and interior requires no upkeep. Just wipe it down with a damp cloth when needed. Unlike fiberglass the high gloss shine lasts for its life.
“New scullers benefit from the seaworthy, stable platform of a Solo 14®. Proper blade entry and exit from the water are easy to perform in the roughest of conditions. This boat is impossible to flip and totally fun to row. I love ‘Freedom Crabber’ my Solo 14.”
-Adam Kreek, (6’5” 225lbs) Olympic Gold Rower and 4 time world rowing champion
Tough Co-polymer Construction
The hull and decks are constructed from virtually indestructible co-polymer plastic, using a heat-and-vacuum forming process called thermoforming. The hull and deck are rigid and stiff thanks to a inner specially designed inter deck and the medium itself. Unlike rotocast polyethylene this boat will not change shape when exposed to hot sunlight. This is necessary for a performance rowing boat. The Solo 14™’s exterior has an acrylic coating bonded to it known as ‘Solarcote™’. It is UV-proof and retains a glossy yacht-like finish. Co-polymer is much more impact-resistant than a fiberglass hull, does not go chalky or dull like gelcoat , It simplyd stays shiny and looking good for years. Our commitment to quality and superior design has produced the absolute best boat of its type in the marketplace. The materials and copolymer plastic used in construction of the Solo 14™ are 100% recyclable.
The Whitehall Spirit® Solo 14™ rowing boat is distinctly elegant and extremely seaworthy, with a pedigree that goes back for hundreds of years.

To keep the Solo 14™ looking new, all that’s required is a few minutes spent wiping it down with a damp cloth when needed. This means there is much more time to spend actually using the boat, having fun, and keeping fit. It will never need painting or ever waxing due to the Solorcote® exterior finish.
The Solo 14® comes equipped with all of the features listed here as standard and included. The only factory options to consider are the stainless steel keelstrip, motor pads and a custom boat name. These can be seen under “Factory Options” in the Accessories section of the website.
