The Tyee 14 is available with the factory option of either a removable solid teak floorboard system or a fully buoyant floor called the Ocean Tender Floor factory option is available. This buoyant floor option adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy, a further safety feature, handy for when the boat is used as a ship’s tender or shore boat. With no one aboard, simply pull the drain plug and the boat self-bails.
This Classic Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 is right at home at the cabin, on the deck of a yacht, on a trailer in the garage or parked on a dock. If stored outside exposed to weather perhaps on Dock Bunk, or a Boat Dolly, or a small boat trailer, fitting it out with Lexan battens and a fitted Sunbrella cover are recommended.
Maintenance involves cleaning the teak and applying a coat of exterior teak oil and requires only about three hours per year. See the article on Care, Storage & Maintenance of your Classic Whitehall Spirit® boat.
