The Whitehall Spirit® Tyee Sailing rowboat is very fast and easily exceeds its rowing speed of 5 knots as it slips lightly across the water. The efficient, easily-handled sail rig sets up in less than five minutes. When not in use, it can be stowed inside the boat. The slightly fuller hull accommodates three or even four people.
It handles crisply due to the large kick-up rudder. The centerboard trunk containing the “rockproof” cast-bronze centerboard provides stability and ease of handling. The Tyee 14 sailing rowboat can be fitted with an optional slide seat sculling unit, complete with hinged bronze outriggers and 9’6″ open-water sculling oars.
Requiring only 6 inches of water with the keel and rudder fully retracted, the Tyee 14 can tuck into quiet and uncrowded spots. This model 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.
Complete boat with solid teak woodwork, bronze fittings, lapstrake fiberglass hull, bilge drain/plug, maintenance kit, bronze builder’s plaque, two fixed seat rowing stations, pivoting bronze centerboard, kick-up rudder, Spruce mast, boom and lug, mainsail, jib, sailing gear & How to Row & Sail DVD – ready to row or sail.

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.
