This Classic Whitehall Spirit® 14 rowboat is often called the most beautiful rowing boat in the world because of its immaculate lapstrake styled hull and flowing lines combined with exquisite teak woodwork and custom cast bronze fittings. It rows as beautifully as it looks. Two fixed seat rowing positions with gunnel-mounted oarlocks enable two rowers to row in tandem but it is most often rowed by one rower from the rear fixed seat position. There is ample seating space to take along a friend or two and even your dog. Whitehall rowboats are famous for their ability to row in rough water. The glide between strokes is amazing. The full-length keel keeps the boat tracking straight and true while being rowed.

The Whitehall design with its sophisticated, attractive hull can be traced back over 400 years to a time when it was considered the best rowboat available. Once the perfected shape had fully evolved no further major changes were made. It simply could not be improved further for handling ability in all water conditions or for speed. For a more complete understanding of this famous historic rowboat refer to the article The History of the Whitehall by Harold Aune.

The Classic Whitehall Spirit® 14 is custom made by our master craftsmen in our shop in Victoria, BC Canada. It’s a boat built to last 100 years or longer providing rowing pleasure for generations. Our commitment is to provide the highest quality that is possible. The Whitehall Spirit® 14 is the best boat of its type in the marketplace. It’s CE certified and US and Canadian Coast Guard approved. Built-in buoyancy makes it virtually unsinkable.

The Classic Whitehall Spirit® 14 rowboat comes complete with solid teak woodwork, copper riveted gunnels, custom cast bronze fittings, an impeccably finished lapstrake fiberglass hull, bilge drain/plug, and a bronze builder’s plaque. Factory options include a Solid Teak Floor or a Fully Buoyant Ocean Tender Floor, or a Custom Name on the transom. Other accessories are available on the drop down menu under accessories.
