This traditional Whitehall rowboat is known as the most beautiful rowing boat in the world. It rows as beautifully as it looks. It can be rowed by one person, usually from the rear seat. Two fixed seat rowing stations with gunnel-mounted oarlocks enable two rowers to row at the same time in tandem.

This boat is custom made by our master craftsmen in our shop in Victoria, BC Canada. It is a boat 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.

As with all our models, 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.
There is room for a second rower and a friend or your dog. This boat is practical and perfect for rowing on lakes, rivers, or the ocean. It handles rough water very well and rows easily. The glide between strokes is amazing and the classic full-length keel keeps the boat tracking straight even in wind and waves.

An optional solid teak floorboard system is available as well as a fully buoyant “Ocean Tender Floor” which adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy to the boat.

This Classic Whitehall Spirit® 14 Traditional model is also available with single seat sculling gear or as a Classic Whitehall Spirit® 14 sailing model with optional slide seat sculling gear.

This boat comes complete with solid teak woodwork, bronze fittings, lapstrake fiberglass hull, bilge drain/plug, and its bronze builder’s plaque.

Here are links to videos on How to Sail and How to Slide Seat Scull and How to Row Fixed Seat available for those who may want to teach themselves to row sail 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.
