Exhilarating racing, smooth sailing

A legend reborn

Boasting an enviable regatta record, ELEONORA, now available for charter, was built to an exacting standard following the original lines of legendary racing schooner WESTWARD - one of the greatest designs by the famed designer Herreshoff.

ELEONORA 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 a number of high profile guests on board during her charter activities.

Mirroring N.G. Herreshoff’s design, she is fully panelled in mahogany throughout. With no sacrifice to luxurious standards of comfort, her staterooms and entire traditional interior display the ambience and elegance of another age.
