The Classic Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 rowboat makes rowing on rivers, lakes or the ocean safe and rewarding. It easily handles wind, waves and wakes.  It has fuller beam extending along the hull and the transom is three inches wider than the Classic Whitehall Spirit® 14. This means it can carry a heavier load or an outboard motor on the transom.

The Tyee 14 is an exact replica of the famous Campbell River Tyee salmon fishing rowboat designed by Ned Painter in 1910. Ned built the originals in wood with oak ribs and red cedar planking. They became very popular with local fishermen and are renowned for the way they carry a heavy load while handling the choppy tidal waters around Campbell River. Celebrities of the day, Zane Grey, Bob Hope and John Wayne, plus thousands of others enjoyed rowing these boats fishing for Tyee Salmon near the famous Painters Lodge and the Tyee Club of BC For a  complete history of this famous rowboat see: The History of the Tyee 14 Fishing Rowboat – A Century Old and Rowing Strong.

For rowboat fishing check out the Custom Row Fishing Model of this boat.

The Tyee 14 features exquisite lapstrake-style planking called ‘clinker built’ back in the day. It has an ‘untucked’ transom rather than the ‘wineglass’ shape of a Whitehall.

Two rowing positions enable two rowers to row at the same time although It is usually rowed by one person from the aft position. The forward storage locker enables gas tanks, tackle boxes, or lifejackets to be left aboard, keeping them dry and secure.

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.

The Tyee 14 is available with a factory option of a removable solid teak floorboard or a fully buoyant  Ocean Tender Floor This floor adds substantial reserve buoyancy, handy for when the boat is used as a ship’s tender or shore boat. Simply pull the drain plug and the empty boat self-bails.

This Classic Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 is right at home at the cottage, on the deck of a yacht, on a trailer in the garage or parked on a dock. If stored outside exposed to weather on a Dock Bunk, or Boat Dolly, or small boat trailer, fitting it with Lexan battens and a fitted Sunbrella cover is recommended.

Maintenance involves cleaning the teak and applying a coat of exterior teak oil requiring only about three hours per year. See the article: Care, Storage & Maintenance of your Classic Whitehall Spirit® boat.

Owner Raul Barbarbieri of Milan, Italy, states:

“My Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 rowboat is beautiful, and her harmonious classic lines have a fascination that is lacking in modern boats. Looking at her, one can understand the care and love that went into her making. The apparent simplicity of detail denotes careful study to identify simple and perfect solutions. The working of the fiberglass and the wooden parts, produce a truly amazing finish.”
