Whitehall Spirit® Tango 17® Double Slide Seat Sculling Rowboat
The Whitehall Spirit® Tango 17® changes your life for the better, providing fitness, health, and positive energy. Being out on the water, in nature, breathing fresh clean air is good for the lungs, body and soul. Knowing this seaworthy boat handles wind and waves safely, brings confidence and a feeling of well-being while rowing.
The Tango 17® is built with modern, ultra-tough, light weight copolymer. It never needs painting or even waxing. Simply wipe the boat down with a wet cloth to keep it shiny and clean.
- A rugged all-water fitness rowing machine for all rowers including beginners, recreational, or hard-core professionals.
- The Tango 17®rows like a dream in flat water and handles wind and waves with ease.
- It uses up to 90% of your muscles with no stress on the knees while burning up to twice the calories as jogging or kayaking. Perfect for cardio or weight control and recommended by doctors and fitness trainers.
- It can be rowed as a single, by yourself, or as a double, with a partner.
- It’s a stable platform for fishing or crabbing, or for taking kids and dogs along. Safe even while rowing in wind and waves.
- Double hull construction makes the Tango 17® totally buoyant and virtually unsinkable.
- It carries US and Canadian Coast Guard approval and is CE certified.
- Great for entering open water rowing and events. The Tango 17® won leg 1 of the Race To Alaska (R2AK) three times.
- Take your Tango 17® camping or on expeditions; it’s faster, more comfortable and holds more gear than a kayak.
- Getting out rowing the Tango 17® calms your mind and refreshes your soul.
Any standard sculling oars will work however we recommend Carbon Fiber Sculling Oars, that we can supply, shipped with the boat. If tying up to a dock is intended, consider adding a set of tie-up lines and fenders to your order.
The Whitehall Spirit® Tango 17® is right at home at the cottage, on a trailer in the garage, or parked on a dock or on the deck of a yacht. If stored outside, exposed to weather, on a dock bunk, a boat dolly, or small boat trailer, Lexan cover battens and a fitted waterproof Sunbrella cover are recommended.

“When I row my Tango 17® three of my passions come together, family, health and rowing. It’s perfect for rowing in calm or wind 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 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.
