Steel hull with teak superstructure, ELEONORA is an exact replica of the schooner Westward which was designed in 1910 by Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, also known as the ‘Wizard of Bristol’, the designer of the America’s Cup defenders which turned back all six challenges from 1893 to 1920. Westward was arguably one of the most famous racing schooners in the world.
ELEONORA not only follows Westward’s heritage of big schooners racing but she also offers with her comfort and space an unforgettable cruising and relaxation experience. She was built at the Van der Graaf shipyard in Holland and was launched in March 2000. Since then, she has successfully participated in a number of classic sailing regattas and hosted on board a number of high-profile guests during her charter activities.
ELEONORA shows astonishing beauty under sail, her slender hull cutting a pathway through the sea, an elegant combination of beauty and power. With no sacrifice to luxurious standards of comfort, her staterooms and the entire interior display the ambience and elegance of another age.
ELEONORA is an extremely well-maintained yacht that is continually upgraded, maintained and overhauled to keep her in top condition.
