Prior to 2010, the Alden Whitehall’s production was discontinued. Though the Alden Whitehall cannot be purchased new, we often carry used Alden Whitehall rowing boats. Please check our used boat page.
Alden Whitehall 16 rowed by Gary Piantedosi
Combining a classic Whitehall with the efficiency and power of sliding seat sculling makes for a fast and seaworthy boat that’s quiet in the water and a pleasure to row. At 16 feet, the graceful lines and hourglass stern of the Alden Whitehall 16 glide over the waves for a dry ride. Originally used as livery boats, the Whitehall’s V-shape hull becomes more stable as the weight load increases.
The Whitehall features Alden’s Gull Wing Folding Rigger system. Stiff and reliable, the rigger quietly folds in and out, nesting below the gunwales and accommodating higher docks. The Gull Wing frame stiffens the hull by acting as a reinforcing thwart. This system also allows the Whitehall to be safely towed as a tender, moored or cartopped. The rigging can be moved farther forward to accommodate a non-rowing passenger or second drop in Gull Wing system.
The Gull Wing is the culmination of Gary Piantedosi’s over 30 years of experience designing, manufacturing and open water racing. Built with anodized aluminum, stainless steel fasteners and ball bearing wheels, the Gull Wing uses the same reliable and legendary monorail system Piantedosi has been building since 1983. Paired with the Gull Wing, the Whitehall makes sliding seat rowing a truly elegant exercise experience.
