Whitehall Spirit® Minto 9 Rowing Tender
Classic Whitehall Spirit® rowboats are impeccably built to easily last 100 years providing pleasurable usage for generations of rowers. They are at home on a yacht, at the cabin, on a trailer in the garage, or parked on a dock. Built in buoyancy compartments make this boat virtually unsinkable.
Prized for its use as a dinghy, tender, small rowboat or even as a sailing boat, the Minto rows exceptionally well with one, two or three adults on board.
According to retired boat builder Les Curley, in the late 1950s the “original” wooden hull was found washed up on the grounds of “Our Lady Minto Hospital” on Saltspring Island by builder Ed Hoppen who named it the “Minto”. It was estimated to have been built at the turn of the century. The original builder is unknown. Ed built the fist fiberglass models using the original as a pattern.
The Minto excels at how it handles, when rowing with one, two, or three adults on board. With generous freeboard, well positioned seats and oarlocks, this boat performs efficiently in a variety of wave conditions and is also renowned for stability when boarding. The full bow shape and tracking skeg allows for safe and easy towing.
Our commitment to ultra quality and superior design means the Minto 9 is the boat of its type in the marketplace. Worldwide delivery is available.
