The Whitehall Spirit® Solo 14® is the most popular of all rowboat models we build. This boat will change your life for the better, providing fitness, health, and positive energy. Being out on the water, in nature, breathing fresh clean air is good for the lungs, body and soul. Knowing this seaworthy boat handles wind and waves safely brings a feeling of confidence and well-being while on the water.

The Solo 14® is ultra-tough, maintenance free, never needs painting or even waxing because it’s made of maintenance free thermoform copolymer. It’s also UV proof. Simply wiping the boat down with a wet cloth keeps it shiny and clean.
Owning a Whitehall Spirit® Solo 14® will change your life for the better:

  • It’s a rugged all-water fitness rowing machine for all types of rowers including beginners, recreational, and hard-core professionals.
  • It’s a stable platform for fishing, crabbing, or for taking kids and dogs along.
  • Stable even while rowing in wind and waves.
  • It’s fully buoyant and virtually unsinkable.
  • It uses up to 90% of your muscles with no stress on the knees and burns twice the calories as jogging or kayaking.
  • You can row by yourself, bring your favourite person or pet, or enter open water rowing/paddling events.
  • You can take your Solo 14® camping or on expeditions; it’s faster, more comfortable, and holds more gear than a kayak.
  • The co-polymer construction means it’s ultra-tough with almost zero maintenance. Stays shiny forever! More time to go rowing!
  • Double hull construction makes the Solo 14® virtually unsinkable just like the larger Tango 17®.
  • The Solo 14® is US and Canadian Coast Guard approved and CE certified.
  • Getting out in a seaworthy Solo 14® calms the mind and refreshes the soul!

Any standard sculling oars will work however we recommend the Carbon Fiber Sculling Oars we can supply shipped with the boat. If tying up to a dock is intended, consider adding a set of tie-up lines and fenders to your order.

The Whitehall Spirit® Solo14® is right at home at the cottage, on a trailer in the garage or parked on a dock or on the deck of a yacht. If stored outside, exposed to weather, on a dock bunk, a boat dolly, or small boat trailer, Lexan cover battens and a fitted waterproof Sunbrella cover are recommended.

Fitness trainers and doctors recommend slide seat sculling because it’s an amazing full body, low impact exercise, that utilizes up to 90% of your body’s muscles, including both legs at once to initiate the stroke, burns twice the calories as jogging with no stress on the knees or joints. Perfect for cardio and weight control.

“New scullers benefit from the seaworthy, stable platform of a Solo 14®. Proper blade entry and exit from the water are easy to perform in the roughest of conditions. This boat is impossible to flip and totally fun to row. I love ‘Freedom Crabber’ my Solo 14.”

-Adam Kreek, (6’5” 225lbs) Olympic Gold Rower and 4 time world rowing champion

    Tough Co-polymer Construction

    The hull and decks are constructed from virtually indestructible co-polymer plastic, using a heat-and-vacuum forming process called thermoforming. The hull and deck are rigid and stiff thanks to an inner specially designed inter deck and the medium itself. Unlike rotocast polyethylene this boat will not change shape when exposed to hot sunlight. This is necessary for a performance rowing boat. The Solo 14®’s exterior has an acrylic coating bonded to it known as ‘Solarcote®’. It is UV-proof and retains a glossy yacht-like finish. Co-polymer is much more impact-resistant than a fiberglass hull, does not go chalky or dull like gelcoat, It simply stays shiny and looking good for years. Our commitment to quality and superior design has produced the absolute best boat of its type in the marketplace. The materials and copolymer plastic used in construction of the Solo 14® are 100% recyclable.

    The Whitehall Spirit® Solo 14® rowing boat is distinctly elegant and extremely seaworthy, with a pedigree that goes back for hundreds of years.

    To keep the Solo 14® looking new, all that’s required is a few minutes spent wiping it down with a damp cloth when needed. This means there is much more time to spend actually using the boat, having fun, and keeping fit. It will never need painting or ever waxing due to the Solorcote® exterior finish.

    Standard Features

    The Solo 14® comes equipped with all of the features listed here 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.


    Sliding Seat
    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 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.


    Fixed Seat
    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.


    Forward Oarlocks
    Forward oarlocks sockets allow rowing from the forward fixed seat. Enables up to four people to be carried.


    Top quality nonskid located on the cockpit floor prevents slipping and makes it safer and easier to move around. Dog-friendly.


    Drain plug
    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.


    Mushroom Cleat
    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.


    Batten Ends
    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.
