Here we are now in 2021!!

At Whitehall Rowing & Sail we had an extraordinary year in 2020 with greater numbers of people, more than ever, purchasing Whitehall Spirit® rowing and sailing boats and Oar Boards. Many people have expressed their thanks about being able to get out on the water in fresh clean air, revisiting their stress-free-selves, while getting some much needed exercise. The other good news is all of us at Whitehall are happy, healthy, and feeling fine and we’ve even added more talented staff so we can continue to fill your orders to help keep you rowing.

What Whitehall® Owners Say

“Everything Harold said about the boats is so true. I am 72 years of age and have owned my Solo 14 since 2015. I row on the Ottawa River from April to November and my boat is truly an all water boat. I purchased the Oar Board package sold by Whitehall and enjoyed it also this past summer. However, nothing beats my Solo 14. Thanks Harold for adding another fun dimension to my active life.”
Sharon Patterson - Ottawa, ON Canada, Solo 14 owner

Thanks for the beautiful boat. I love the high level of quality. I am amazed at how easily my boat glides over the water when we are slide seat rowing.

Barbara Furer - Zurich, Switzerland, Expedition 17 owner

This is the boat that I have been looking for, for thirty years. It’s a real rowing boat I can row in salt water. It’s got speed. I can pull it up on the beach and it’s unsinkable. That’s why I got one, I love it!

(John rows the water around Deception Pass and Fidalgo Island, Washington, USA)

John Sayer - 1961 Gold medal Olympian

Wonderful workout.

John Z., Maryland, USA

My kids love going for rides and even the dog gets to come along!

Kyra Perry - On rowing her Solo 14 ‘My Sulis'

The best part of towing the Solo was having her with me to row every morning. What a wonderful way to spend time while cruising… I rowed so much I ended up with blisters on my hands and bruises on my bum! THAT is a lot of rowing!

David Zaharik - On Rowing and Towing his Solo 14

We are enjoying our Solo 14 every day. On the few days we don’t row, we just enjoy looking at her bobbing on the water right in front of our window.

Caroline and Janko Jovicevic

I love my Oar Board! It’s fun, it’s fast and I get a super workout.

Adam Kreek, Olympic Gold Medalist

It is such a good workout and being on the water makes it so enjoyable. And my two dogs just love being out in the boat.

Craig Nelson - Rowing a Solo 14 on Lake Tahoe, California

The Tango has become mine and I wish I could row all day. Today under the blue blue sky I felt like a part of the universe.

Maria Rivera - Tango Owner, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

I really enjoy seeing the eddies from my oars as they disappear into the distance. I’ve always kept myself fit but I’ve never been more physically fit since I started rowing the Solo 14.

Dave Stith - Solo 14 owner, Bainbridge Island

Having fun doesn’t quite adequately convey how much I love this boat! I have been rowing it in the mornings and it handles waves, swells, wakes and contrary tides so well I am getting more comfortable in it every time I take it out.

Linda King’s - Solo 14 is “Her Pride and Joy”
