The Classic Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 Sailing Rowboat delights experienced sailors and beginners alike. It’s a way to enjoy sailing without the responsibilities and high costs of owning a much bigger boat. Enjoy feeling wind on your face with your hand on the tiller making minute adjustments to every slight wind change. If the wind dies simply drop the jib, lower the mainsail, grab the oars and cruise home at 3 to 5 knots (5 to 9k).

Under sail, it handles superbly due to the large kick-up rudder. The centerboard trunk contains the ‘rock proof’ solid cast-bronze centerboard providing stability and ease of handling. Needing only 6” (15cm) of water to float with the keel and rudder retracted the Tyee 14 can tuck into quiet spots away from crowds. It’s fully beachable for exploring or camping ashore.

The easily handled sail rig sets up in minutes and all the gear stows neatly inside the boat. With three or four people aboard it can be rowed for hours at 4 or 5 knots (8 -10 kph).

If you require traditional oars, we supply the best available. 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.

This Classic Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 sailing model is right at home on the deck of a yacht, at the cabin, on a trailer in the garage or parked on a dock. If stored outside on a Dock Bunk or a Boat Dolly or on a small boat trailer exposed to the elements then Lexan battens and a fitted waterproof Sunbrella cover  is recommended.

The Tyee 14 sailing model is available with optional slide seat sculling gear

It is also available as a fishing rowboat.

It is available with the factory optional solid teak floorboards or a fully-buoyant “Ocean Tender Floor” adding substantial reserve buoyancy to the boat. The forward storage locker enables small gas tanks, tackle boxes, or lifejackets to be left aboard, dry and secure. The spacious foredeck area is a great place for the dog to hang out.

See the many options on the sailing gear accessories page.

How to Sail and How to Slide Seat Scull and How to Row Fixed Seat videos are available for those who prefer to teach themselves.

The Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 is custom built by master craftsmen in Victoria, BC Canada. It features an exquisite lapstrake-style hand laid fiberglass hull. It’s built to last 100 years  providing sailing and rowing pleasure for generations. Our commitment to highest quality and superior design makes this the best boat of its type in the marketplace. It is CE certified, Canadian and US Coast Guard approved. Built-in buoyancy makes it virtually unsinkable.

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

The hull is hand-laid fiberglass, impeccably finished inside and out. The woodwork is solid teak finished in hand-rubbed oil, meaning maintenance is not an issue, and will require only about three hours per year. Copper rivets and roves are used on the gunnel, and the metal fittings are custom-cast bronze. The photo album above shows close-up details of the fine workmanship.

The woodwork is hand-picked solid teak, usually bookmatched. It is hand-rubbed with three coats of our special outdoor oil. We do not recommend a varnish finish on any of our boats, because any coating system will eventually need to be stripped, which will compromise the woodwork itself – it’s costly and time-consuming.

The mast and boom is made from clear, tight-grained Sitka spruce and coated with three coats of marine-quality varnish.

This boat can achieve speeds that are considerably greater than its hull speed when sailing off the wind.
