This Classic Whitehall Spirit® rowboat is impeccably built to last 100 years or more providing rowing pleasure for generations of rowers. Our commitment to highest quality plus superior design makes this the ultimate boat of its type in the marketplace. It is CE certified and US Coast Guard approved. Built-in buoyancy makes it virtually unsinkable.
As with all our models, this boat is right at home on the deck of a yacht, at the cabin, parked on a dock, or on a trailer in the garage.
This double position slide seat Whitehall provides stability, comfort, and safety even while rowing in wind and waves. Works equally well for beginners and experienced or even hard-core competitive rowers, for fitness training or cross-training for those who desire a low-impact, full-body workout.
Unlike a narrow rowing shell there is room for a friend plus your dog and gear. Whether rowing in calm water or wind and waves on lakes, rivers and oceans, this boat makes you feel good. It can be easily rowed by a single rower.
5 to 6 knots (10 to 12 km/h) can be maintained for hours with little strain on the rowers. Rowing with a sliding seat uses 800 calories per hour, about double that of jogging without stress on the knees, joints, or connective tissues. The long, smooth glide needs to be experienced and enjoyed.
It’s fitted with two removable sliding seat units, bronze outriggers, and 9’6″ sculls. The slide seat can be removed or installed in a minute or two converting the boat to a double fixed seat rowboat.
An optional solid teak floorboard system is available as well as a fully buoyant “Ocean Tender Floor” which adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy to the boat.
This Classic Whitehall Spirit® sculling model is also available as a Traditional Fixed Seat Rowboat, a Sailing Model or the top-of-the-line Whitehall Spirit® Expedition Model.
