Rowing a Whitehall Spirit® “All Water” Tango 17™ 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” double scull rowboat offers stability, comfort, and safety that is not possible in any rowing shell and you can row the Tango 17 by yourself or row it with a partner. You can also 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 extremely well 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 Tango 17® is the world’s first and only thermoformed co-polymer double position sculling boat. Tough, light and virtually maintenance free. It’s UV proof hull and interior requires no upkeep. Simply few wipe it down with a damp cloth when needed. Unlike fiberglass the high gloss shine lasts for life. (link with the care and maintenance solo tango article)
Zeno Muller, (6’2” 240lbs) Olympic Gold Rower, holder of the fastest single scull 2000 meter event for 15 years says:
“When I row my Tango 17® three of my passions come together, family, health and rowing. It’s perfect for rowing in calms or wing and waves. An ideal training platform for beginners of any age and perfect for families to enjoy the art and sport of sculling while getting fit and staying healthy.”
The hull and deck are constructed from an ultra-strong co-polymer plastic using a heat/vacuum forming process called thermoforming. Co-polymer is rigid and stiff and will not change shape like rotocast polyethylene does when exposed to direct sunlight. Co-polymer is also much more impact-resistant than fiberglass hull construction and is virtually maintenance-free.
The exterior and interior have an acrylic coating called Solarkote® bonded to the surface that is UV-proof. That means the boat retains a glossy yacht-like finish and stays shiny and looking good for years. An ‘interdeck’ bonded between the hull and deck further stiffens the boat and reinforces the cockpit deck, track tower bases, and footstop mounts, which are subject to the major forces of the rowing process. The double hull construction makes the Tango 17™ virtually unsinkable just like the Solo 14™ model.
The metals and copolymer plastic used in construction of the Tango 17™ are 100% recyclable. See more details on the features page.
