The hull is hand-laid fiberglass, impeccably finished inside and out. The woodwork is solid teak finished in hand-rubbed oil. Copper rivets and roves are used on the gunnel, and the metal fittings are custom-cast bronze.
It is an ideal shore boat or yacht tender, great for keeping at the cottage, parked on a dock, or on a trailer in the garage. If the boat is going to be stored outside on a Boat Dolly, Boat Bunk or small boat trailer, we recommend adding a Sunbrella cover and Lexan Battens to your order to keep the boat pristine.
If tying up to a dock is part of your planned use, consider adding a set of Tie-up Lines and Fenders to your order.
This boat is custom made by our master craftsmen in our shop in Victoria, BC Canada. It is a sculling boat built to last 100 years or longer providing rowing/sculling fitness and fun 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, Canadian and US Coast Guard approved. Built-in buoyancy makes it virtually unsinkable.
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.
It is available with a Factory Optional Solid Teak Floorboard or a fully-buoyant “Ocean Tender Floor” which adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy to the boat. The forward storage locker enables gear such as small gas tanks, tackle boxes, or lifejackets to be left aboard, dry, and secure.
This Classic Whitehall Spirit® Westcoast 11.6 Slide Seat Sculling model, like all our models, is also a Traditional Fixed Seat Rowboat gear by simply swopping the rowing unit for the supplied fixed seat, or as an option of being ordered as a Sailing Model with all three modes integrated into the same boat. Finally, it has been used extensively and is available as a Lifeguard Patrol Rowboat.
