Our Special "Whitehall" model is built on the classic "Whitehall" model base, supplemented with cabinet in the front of the boat and extra brass accessories.
Due to boats’ fine weight and shape, that makes boat stable, with high controllability and easy to gain high speed and easy rowing, oarsmen began to use the boat in sporting competitions. In the middle of 19th century rowing became the main American sport on the East coast and it had great influence on the popularity of “Whitehall”.
