Traditional Rowing

The Dolphin Club has a unique fleet of traditional rowing boats. They are all hand-built and lovingly maintained at our club-house. Some are over 100 years old. Rowing them is a special privilege that is hard to find anywhere else in the world.

The majority of our boats are ‘Dolphin Club Sliding Seat Singles,’ which have been designed, lofted and constructed at the Dolphin Club starting in 1948. They are an evolution on the popular Whitehall designs that have evolved over centuries and which were once a common sight along the waterfronts. Their specific features accommodate the club’s needs enhancing both their recreational use as well as ease of piloting swimmers throughout the Bay.
