This slide seat Whitehall provides stability, comfort, and safety even while rowing in wind and waves. It’s suited equally well for beginners and even hard-core competitive rowers. 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.

Unlike a narrow rowing shell, there is room for a friend or your dog. Whether rowing in calm water or wind and waves on lakes, rivers, and oceans this boat will handle it all. This boat is right at home on the deck of a yacht, at the cabin, parked on a dock, or on a trailer in the garage.

4 to 5 knots (6 to 9 km/h) can be maintained for hours with little to no strain on the rower. Rowing with a sliding seat uses 800 calories per hour, about double that of jogging without stress on the knees, joints, or connective tissues

This slide seat sculling model is fitted with a sliding seat unit, bronze outriggers, and 9’6″ sculls. The slide seat can be removed or installed in a minute or two converting the boat to a fixed seat traditional rowboat. It is also available as a sailing model, where the slide seat unit is mounted in position over top of the centreboard.

All the features are standard except for the optional teak floor or the ocean tender fully buoyant floor system which adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy 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 or when it rains the boat also self bails.

All Classic Whitehall Spirit® are rowboats built to last 100 years or more providing rowing pleasure for generations of rowers. Our commitment to highest quality plus superior design makes this the ultimate boat of its type in the marketplace. It is CE certified and US Coast Guard approved. Built-in buoyancy makes it virtually unsinkable.

The Whitehall Spirit® slide seat sculling model is complete with solid teak woodwork, bronze fittings, lapstrake fiberglass hull, bilge drain/plug, maintenance kit, bronze builder’s plaque– ready to row or scull.

    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 below shows close-up details of the fine workmanship.
