This Classic Whitehall Spirit® rowboat is custom made by our master craftsmen in our shop and these rowboats are built to last 100 years or longer providing rowing pleasure for generations of rowers. Our commitment to highest quality plus superior design makes this the best 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 Whitehall Spirit® 17 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 boat is practical and perfect for rowing in lakes, rivers, or on the ocean.
There are three fixed-seat rowing stations with on-the-gunnel oarlocks. The aft and center rowing stations are great for rowing alone. Three people rowing at once is a fun family activity and this boat will cruise along at 5 to 6 knots (10-12K), always looking quite amazing to any onlookers.
There is an optional solid teak floorboard available or a fully buoyant ‘Ocean Tender Floor‘ which adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy to the boat, particularly well suited for when the boat is used as a ship’s personal gym, tender or shore boat.
It is also available as a Double Position Side Seat Sculling Boat, a Whitehall Sailing Model or as the fully loaded Whitehall Spirit® Expedition Model.
