Tango 17® Double Slide Seat Sculling Whitehall Rowboat
Why owning a Whitehall Spirit Tango 17® will change your life for the better:
- It’s the perfect all-water fitness machine for beginners, recreational, and hard-core rowers, single or double.
- Rowing uses over 80% of your muscles and can burn twice as many calories per hour as kayaking.
- Row for competition or socially by entering open water rowing / paddling events.
- Take your Tango 17® camping or on expeditions – faster, more comfortable, and holds more gear than a kayak.
- A stable platform for fishing and crabbing, and for bringing kids and dogs along.
- Reduce stress… it “bobs along” nicely in a light breeze while you quietly enjoy the sunset!

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.

The Tango 17® comes equipped with all of the features shown below as standard and included. The only factory options to consider are the stainless steel keelstrip, motor pads and a custom boat name. These can be seen under “Factory Options” in the Accessories section of the website.
This slide seat design has been used for over a century. Seat holes and cutaway fit the coccyx and sit bones. Anodized tracks allow smooth sliding.
Adjustable foot stretcher fits any leg length. Velcro straps enable regular footwear to be worn by the rower. Heel cups adjust up or down for varying shoe sizes.
These cast aluminum outriggers create the correct span for 9’6” carbon fiber sculling oars. The rower can remain seated when the outrigger is hinged inboard.
Outriggers hinge inboard when coming alongside a dock or boat. By being closer to the dock, the boat is more stable, safer and easier to get into or out of.
The sliding seat removes easily and the fixed seat snaps into place. The fixed seat stows between the track risers, flush to the floor for convenient storage.
Traditional Oar Socket
Oarlock sockets cast into the outrigger bases allow traditional “oars on the gunnel” style rowing using either or both of the fixed seats.
Top quality nonskid located on the cockpit floor prevents slipping and makes it safer and easier to move around. Dog-friendly.
Pulling the plug when storing the boat out of the water keeps the hull from collecting rain water and makes draining easier when hosing the boat down.
Cleats are used for hanging fenders or spring lines when tying to a dock. The mushroom shape has no sharp corners to help prevent snagging on clothing.
The batten ends come installed ready for battens. Battens enable a boat cover to shed rain water. See the accessories page for ordering a set of custom Lexan battens.
Sturdy Bow/Stern eyes
A recessed bow eye protects other boats from damage and takes the worry out of coming alongside. They are strong enough to lift or tow the boat.
Conveniently secure your cushions or gear using these durable plastic tie downs, suitable for webbing strap.
How to Order
Many customers first print the “Pricing and Accessories PDF”, in the “Pricing” tab above, for the boat they are planning to purchase, and then check-off the items they are interested in before calling or sending it to us. This is a good way to begin the process.
Alternatively, you can call to discuss your options, especially if you are unsure about what Whitehall boat model you are interested in. Your order may be as simple as a basic rowing model with oars, or as elaborate as a slide-seat rowing & sailing model with accessories, delivered to another continent.
