Boston Whitehall Tender Canoe Model Free Shipping

This model is simple, but stunning!

This is a FULLY ASSEMBLED replica of a Boston Tender, a classic rowing boat believed to have originated along the New York waterfront in the early 1800s. It looks and feels like a miniature real boat. This 24.5-inch model is handcrafted with the highest quality woods from scratch by master artisans using “plank on frame” construction, just like the real boats. Each model canoe takes more than 50 hours to construct. Among the details of this boat model: interior ribs, four oars, oar holders, seats, brass nameplate and stand. The boat is hardwood, through and through!

24.5" LONG,  6" TALL, 6" WIDE

Historic Past:

 Some hold that the Whitehall rowing boat design was introduced from England. However the famed nautical historian Howard I. Chappelle cites the opinion of the late W. P. Stephens that in New York City there is a Whitehall Street and this was where the Whitehall was first built. Chappelle, Stephens and others agree that the design came into existence some time in the 1820’s in New York City, having first been built by navy yard apprentices who had derived their model to some extent from the old naval gig.
