The Tyee Spirit sculling rowboat, with its exquisite lapstrake-style planking, has all the features of the Whitehall Spirit® 14 rowboat in a hull that is slightly wider and fuller, and can carry an even larger load. Almost anyone can row this boat with no difficulty.

This boat is custom made by our master craftsmen in our shop in Victoria BC Canada. It is built to last 100 years or longer providing rowing pleasure for generations of rowers. Our commitment to the 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

In the Tyee 14 sculling rowboat, you can row in locations or conditions that are way too rough for a racing scull or even an open water shell. Two or three strokes take her up to speed – the long, smooth glide needs to be experienced to be believed. A speed of 4 to 5 knots (6 to 9 km/h) can be maintained for hours with little to no strain on the rower.

The slide seat unit itself is installed or removed in minutes, converting the boat back to a traditional oars-on-the-gunnel fixed seat rowboat perfect for carrying three or four persons, or if an outboard motor is utilized such as the Torqeedo electric outboard.

A large stowage locker is built-in and accessed through a hatch on the foredeck, great for stowing such items as small gas tanks, tackle boxes, or lifejackets to be left aboard, dry and secure. On top of this is a perfect spot for the dog to lounge.

Brian O’Sullivan, who uses a Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 as the ship’s boat on his 70’ Hatteras, reports:

“Our Tyee 14 gets a lot of use as a slide seat rowing boat for exercise, a rowing fishing boat, and as a sailboat.” Brian reports that it’s “become the ship’s favourite and offers hours of fun every day for the whole family.”


As do all Whitehall Spirit® boats, it features built-in buoyancy forward and aft, and is shown here with the optional removable solid teak floorboard system. An “Ocean Tender Floor” is available as well, which adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy (an important safety feature) to the boat, perfect for when the boat is used as a ship’s tender or shoreboat. With no one aboard, simply pull the drain plug and the boat self-bails.

This Classic Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 slide seat model is also available as a fixed seat traditional rowboat or as a sailing model and also as a fishing rowboat model.

As rowers and health professionals know, slide seat sculling uses up to 90% of your muscles with no stress on the knees and burns twice the calories as jogging or kayaking. To learn more or perhaps teach yourself to row check out our How To Slide Seat Row video by Olympic gold rower Adam Kreek.

    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.
