Everyone from beginners to hard-core competitive rowers love this row-anywhere boat. It’s stable, comfortable, ideal for rowing in wind and waves or gliding along on calm flat water. Rowers love the feeling of getting away from it all, out on the water, breathing fresh clean air while at the same time getting one of the best low impact workouts available.
Health professionals and fitness trainers all recommend slide seat sculling because it’s an amazing full body, low impact exercise. It utilizes up to 90% of your body’s muscles, including both legs at once to initiate the stroke. It burns twice the calories as jogging with no stress on the knees or joints. Perfect for stress relief, weight control, cardio, rehab and cross training. To learn more or to teach yourself to row check out How to slide seat row video by Olympic gold rower Adam Kreek.
All Classic Whitehall Spirit® models are rowboats built to last 100 years or more, providing rowing pleasure for generations. All Classic models are hand built in fiberglass, solid teak, and bronze. Our commitment to highest quality and superior design makes this the ultimate boat of its type in the marketplace. It is CE certified, and US and Canadian Coast Guard approved. Built-in buoyancy makes them virtually unsinkable.
The sculling row stroke is even ergonomically identical to a racing shell. The ride is smooth. There is room for a friend or even your dog. A rowing speed of four or five knots (6 to 9 km/h) can be maintained for hours with little strain on the rower.
This slide seat sculling model is fitted with hinged bronze outriggers which make coming alongside a dock, boarding or exiting the boat much easier. The slide seat can be removed or installed in a minute or two converting the boat to a fixed seat traditional rowboat perfect for carrying more people if needed. It is also available as a sailing model, where the slide seat unit is mounted in position over top of the centreboard.
This Classic Whitehall Spirit® rowboat comes complete with finely finished solid teak woodwork, copper riveted gunnels, custom cast bronze fittings, an impeccably finished lapstrake fiberglass hull, the slide seat rowing unit with hinged bronze outriggers, removable fixed seats, bronze traditional oarlocks, bilge drain/plug, and a bronze builder’s plaque.
All these features mentioned above are standard. Two factory optional accessories your choice of either a Solid Teak Floor or an Ocean Tender Fully Buoyant Floor. The Ocean Tender Floor adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy to the boat, great for when the boat is used as a ship’s tender or shore boat; with no one aboard, simply pull the drain plug and the boat will self-bail. When it rains, with the plug pulled the boat self-bails. Other factory options include a stainless-steel keel strip or a custom name.
Any standard sculling oars will work however we recommend the Club Series Carbon Fiber Oars and we can supply shipped with the boat.
If you require traditional oars we supply the best available. There is a choice of Spruce/Carbon Traditional Oars with Leather collars and pressure cast oarlocks or all Carbon Fiber Traditional Oars with plastic collars and offset oarlocks.
Whether rowing in calm water or wind and waves on lakes, rivers, or oceans, this boat will handle it all. This boat is right at home on the deck of a yacht, at the cottage, on a dock, parked on a trailer in the garage. If the boat is going to be stored outside, on a Dock Bunk or a Boat Dolly or small boat trailer we recommend adding a waterproof Sunbrella cover and Lexan battens to keep it pristine. If tying up to a dock is part of the planned usage, consider adding a set of tie-up lines and fenders to your order.
Maintenance involves cleaning the teak and applying a coat of exterior teak oil and requires only about three hours per year. See the article on Care, Storage & Maintenance of your Classic Whitehall Spirit® boat.
