Whitehall rowboats (Whitehalls) are considered one of the most refined rowboats of the 19th century.[citation needed] The basic design is much older and of European ancestry.
They were the first boats to incorporate an inverted-hull frame set up to speed up the manufacturing process. The hull shape is characterized by a nearly straight stem, and slight flare to the bow, rounded sides, with a keel running the entire length of the bottom and a distinctive wine glass transom with a full skeg. Whitehalls in the early 20th century were a popular recreational boat and were known as the "bicycle of the sea".
Whitehall designs are currently being built in wood, and also manufactured fiberglass usually with wood trims, and more recently thermoformed in co-polymer plastic. Whitehall Row & Sail Builds the Worlds Finest Classic RowboatsSee the sleek ultra quality eco-friendly human and wind powered classics built by Whitehall Rowing & Sail since 1985. In April and May, the Village Community Boathouse will lead volunteers in constructing a 15-foot Whitehall rowboat. Its fleet: A single Whitehall rowboat purchased for $80, used to ferry people and supplies from shore to ships anchored in the Bay.
The Tyee Spirit sculling rowboat, with its exquisite lapstrake-style planking, has all the features of the Whitehall Spirit® 14 rowboat in a hull that is slightly wider and fuller and can carry an even larger load.
In the Tyee 14 sculling rowboat, you can row in locations that are way too rough for a racing scull or even an open water shell. The slide seat unit itself is installed or removed in minutes, converting the boat back to a traditional oars-on-the-gunnel rowboat perfect for carrying three or four persons, or if an outboard motor is utilized. As do all Whitehall Spirit® boats, it features built-in buoyancy forward and aft, and is shown here with the optional removable solid teak floorboard system.

The Whitehall Spirit® Tyee Sailing rowboat is very fast and easily exceeds its rowing speed of 5 knots as it slips lightly across the water.


Requiring only 6 inches of water with the keel and rudder fully retracted, the Tyee 14 can tuck into quiet and uncrowded spots. The mast and boom is made from clear, tight-grained Sitka spruce and coated with three coats of marine-quality varnish. Perfect for fun day sailing, traveling farther distances while exploring coastal waters, lakes, or rivers. The mainsail and jib are identical to the regular sailing model, although a bronze clew outhaul tackle is included on the boom. The boat can be sailed with the mast freestanding, however an additional feature is a Spectra running backstay, offering better sail shape and windward sailing ability. Almost all the optional features are standard on this one, except for the optional teak floor or the ocean tender fully buoyant floor system. 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.
It is hand-rubbed with three coats of our special outdoor oil – teak does not require varnish finish.
It strongly resembles a sailing ship's gig or a Thames river wherry used by watermen as a taxi service. Considered one of the most beautiful row-boats, they are designed to handle the harbor chop and yet track straight. A beginning rower finds it easier to row this design in a straight line because of the tracking type keel. Artists Colleen Flanigan and Judith Pleva highlight New York's native oyster reefs in their immersive installation in June.
From these humble beginnings has grown one of the strongest and recognizable maritime franchises in U.S.
Two or three strokes take her up to speed – the long, smooth glide needs to be experienced to be believed. On the sailing version of this model, the slide seat unit mounts over top of the centerboard well. An “Ocean Tender Floor” is available as well, which adds substantial extra reserve buoyancy (an important safety feature) to the boat, perfect for when the boat is used as a ship’s tender or shoreboat. The centerboard trunk containing the “rockproof” cast-bronze centerboard provides stability and ease of handling. This model features built-in buoyancy forward and aft, and is shown here with the optional removable solid teak floorboard system.


Needing only 6 inches of water with its bronze centerboard and rudder fully retracted, this boat can tuck into quiet, unexplored, and uncrowded spots. The mainsail on this standing lug style rig can be tacked across in full control using only the mainsheet.
Copper rivets and roves are used on the gunnel, and the metal fittings are custom-cast bronze. The mast and boom are made from clear, tight-grained sitka spruce and coated with three coats of marine-quality varnish.
Speed was the issue with these boats, as the first to the ship with the goods generally received the lion's share of the sales. Turning requires stronger strokes on one side, and by braking with one oar and pulling with the other the boat can be turned in its own length. A large stowage locker is built in and accessed through a hatch on the foredeck – a perfect spot for the dog to lounge. The mast is also built in two parts with a carbon fiber sleeve, enabling compact stowage inside the boat. In North America we will custom deliver your Whitehall Spirit® right to your door, dock or marina. Later the shore patrol used these boats for customs, police issues, water taxi, and newspaper reporting.
Many designs are mistakenly being called Whitehalls when they are not actually true to the design criteria. We can arrange for worldwide shipping by air or sea and have provided crating and export assistance for over twenty years. The boats range from 14 to 22 ft in length, the larger requiring two people to row them. The Mystic Seaport Maritime Museum has a comprehensive collection of authentic Whitehall lines.
A Whitehall gig, which is the slightly longer version is 25 ft in length, requiring four rowers and a coxswain for a crew of 5.
