Description

Details:

Whitehall rowboats are considered one of the most refined rowboats of the 19th century. They were first made in the U.S. at the foot of Whitehall Street in New York City to be used to ferry goods, services, and sailors on and off the boats coming into New York Harbor. 

 With centuries of history and tradition behind it, this wooden dinghy was completely handcrafted and takes about 600-800 hours to build. We still use the traditional method of constructions while integrating the highest quality of materials currently available. Strips of cedars are joined together by hand and then encapsulated in fiberglass bonded in place with epoxy resin then coated with marine vanish. This combination of fiberglass and epoxy is very strong and completely transparent so that the beauty of the wood will be protected for generations.
