National Geographic's Adventurers of the Year Love That Tango Move - The New Whitehall Slide-seat Rowing Boat For Friends and Lovers

Share Article

Tango: “…an improvised dance based on mutual communication such that two people move as one.” Around the time the sexy new dance called The Tango caught fire in the 1920s, outboard motor boats were replacing the traditional oar driven rowing boat. Today most people have never handled a pair of oars except as a child with their Grandpa at the cottage. Enter the new Whitehall Spirit® Tango 17™ double slide seat rowing boat from Whitehall Rowing and Sail. Now anyone can enjoy the thrill of fast, modern slide-seat rowing and even share the fun with friends and lovers while staying fit and healthy.

“Rowing is a lot like dancing. It’s easy, energetic and rhythmic with surprisingly huge health benefits. In a Tango it inspires people to enjoy regular outings and connect with nature, wind and water. You will burn up to 800 calories per hour,

"We just love the Tango 17," enthused Julie Angus. She and her husband Colin ought to know. They rowed across the Atlantic Ocean to be named National Geographic's Adventurers of the year in 2009. "It handles choppy water beautifully. We really enjoy going out for a row together in a Tango."

Watch the Tango 17™ video clip here to see the boat in action.

Manufactured with the latest 100% recyclable green technology from thermoformed copolymer plastic, these boats outperform all others in rugged durability, are virtually unsinkable, easy to row and fast. The Tango 17™ is light, strong, safe and requires no maintenance, ideal for everyone who wants a good time on the water.

The new Tango 17™ combines beautiful sweeping hull lines with two powerful sliding rowing seats, hinging outriggers and long ultra light carbon fiber sculling oars. It's a rowing machine built for two! Or even more with friends, kids or pets along for the ride.

Said Andrea Guyon "Rowing is a lot like dancing. It's easy, energetic and rhythmic with surprisingly huge health benefits. In a Tango it inspires people to enjoy regular outings and connect with nature, wind and water. You will burn up to 800 calories per hour, with no stress on joints and ligaments. It's why doctors recommend rowing above most fitness activities. Rowing the Tango 17™, like the dance, can become addictive, which means you shape up and feel and look younger."

Better still this boat loves wind and waves! Open water rowing the Tango 17™ with total confidence is the norm. This means more chances to get out and have fun, even in choppy or windy conditions.

Jody Robinson, MD of Annapolis, Maryland, reports "My wife Meg and I love to head out rowing almost every morning, around sunrise, for an 8 mile row. At times Chesapeake Bay can get rough and choppy but our 17' Whitehall Spirit handles it all with ease. We then head off to work for the day feeling fresh and invigorated."
