About
This model is simple, but stunning! It 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 real boats. Each model takes more than 50 hours to construct and undergoes a demanding quality-control process. Among the details of this boat model: interior ribs, four oars, oar holders, seats, brass nameplate and stand. The boat is wood, through and through! ?

History
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.
