3 historical yachts
« : 08.04.2022, 22:43:44 »

A small historical topic about three interesting yachts that perfectly convey the spirit of the true marine romance


Westward was designed by the great Nathanael Herreshoff and launched in 1910. The schooner is made of steel. At 41 meters long, it is the largest yacht built by Herreshoff to date.

Skippered by America's Cup winner Charlie Barr, she showed unrivaled speed in the wind thanks to her huge sail area. Westward sails are extremely good and balanced. We can say that for the 1910s it was something on the verge of fantasy.

Westward was a schooner that pushed the limits of the materials of the day.

Launched              1910
Max Speed           19 knots
Length                    41 meters
Number of berths   30
Price                           $118 000

Pride of Baltimore II

The Pride of Baltimore II is a replica of an 1812 Baltimore clipper ship. For nearly three decades, it has served as both a model for sailor education and a living exhibit. Since its launch in 1988, the Pride of Baltimore II has sailed 250,000 nautical miles and visited more than 200 ports in 40 countries.

She is one of the most recognizable yachts in the world, with hundreds of thousands of people stepping on her deck during a tour, day sail, educational program, private charter or dock reception, and while sailing as guests. This is a strikingly beautiful vessel that attracts attention wherever it is.

A distinctive feature of the vessel is the topsail on the foremast. Thanks to this fore-topsail, many people remember the “Pride of Baltimore”. The schooner is run by Ian Miles, a skipper with many years of experience. Pride of Baltimore II is a reminder that traditional sailing never goes out of style.

Launched              1988
Max Speed           15 knots
Length                    32 meters
Number of berths   24

Jolie Brise

There is nothing new in sailing, it has all been done before. Jolie Brise is over 100 years old but has a lot in common with the latest trends in yacht design. Just take a closer look at the sails and the long bowsprit - of course, you will see greetings from the past, but the familiar outlines are already showing through.

Of interest is not only the “anatomical” similarity with modern yachts. Jolie Brise wins the very first regatta Fastnet race in 1925. Even before the race became the Rolex Fastnet Race.

Moreover, the boat is still serviceable. It belongs to the Dauntsey's School, its crew consists of students who regularly make ocean (!) crossings on it.

Launched                  1913
Max Speed               15.5 knots
Length                   17 meters
Number of berths      12
