This boat is set up for standard 9’6” (288cm) sculling oars. We stock and can supply Club Style carbon fiber sculling oars that can be shipped along with your boat.
If you require traditional oars we supply the best available. There is a choice of Spruce/Carbon Traditional Oars with Leather collars and pressure cast oarlocks or all Carbon Fiber Traditional Oars with plastic collars and offset oarlocks.
This Classic Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 is right at home on the deck of a yacht, at the cabin, on a trailer in the garage or parked on a dock. If stored outside perhaps on Dock Bunk, or a Boat Dolly, or a small boat trailer exposed to weather, fitting it out with Lexan battens and a fitted Sunbrella cover are recommended. If tying to a dock is part of the scenario, consider adding a set of tie-up lines and fenders to your order.
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.
Other factory options include a stainless steel keel strip or a custom name on the transom.
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.
Brian O’Sullivan, who uses a Whitehall Spirit® Tyee 14 as the ship’s tender on his 70’ Hatteras, reports:
“Our Tyee 14 gets a lot of use as a slide seat rowing boat for exercise, a rowing fishing boat, and as a sailboat.” Brian reports that it’s “become the ship’s favourite and offers hours of fun every day for the whole family.”
