Luxury Sailing Yacht ELEONORA brief:

Luxury sailing yacht ELEONORA (49.5m / 161.5’) is a modern, faithful replica of the famous Trans-Atlantic schooner originally launched as Westward by Herreshoff in 1910.  Using original drawings, Van der Graaf shipyard of Holland recreated this steel hulled, wooden-masted racing yacht back in 2000, originally named Eleonora. 

This classic yacht offers adventurous experience for any sailors keen to participate in carefully selected Mediterranean or Caribbean Classic Regattas taking place throughout the year.  Sleeping up to 8 adult guests on board, ELEONORA Sailing Yacht is usually offering luxury crewed charter itineraries around West Mediterranean in the summer and the East Caribbean in the winter.   Alternative destinations such as yacht charter around Scotland or Venice may be offered as well.  Her super yacht crew of up to nine including a captain, a chief stewardess and a chef are keen to provide first class luxury service on board.

Tip:   Super yacht ELEONORA has a very enthusiastic crew, always keen to sail in or out of any major ports and visiting Venice or Monaco under full sail, indeed one of the best experiences you can have during a charter.  Her uncluttered deck with a large dining table is perfect for stylish al-fresco dinners providing a great location to enjoy fabulous sea views.

About Luxury Sailing Yacht ELEONORA:
Luxury sailing boat ELEONORA is another classic racing yacht schooner originally designed by the wizard of Bristol, Nathanael Greene Herreshoff.  Nat revolutionized the world of yacht design at the beginning of last century, producing a number of America Cup winners between 1893–1920, just before he died.   Thanks to the new owner, we can witness a spectacular majesty and grandeur of this superb classic yacht once again. The original schooner, Westward as it was called back then, achieved her ultimate triumphs immediately after her launch, as the fastest schooner in the world at the time.  As a result, she won several trophies sailing very successfully against yachts such as Lulworth or Meteror II. 

With her clean and vast deck, most modern interior from Heine Deelstra & Hans Ritzema of Gaastmeer Ship & Yacht Design and state-of-the art amenities, ELEONORA is also an excellent charter yacht for clients who seek more than just a luxury crewed charter, but also a piece of history that comes with it.  The current ELEONORA is just over a decade old, yet classifies as a genuine classic yacht, a type of boat often favoured by the traditionalist amongst yacht charterers.  Her timeless and elegant design, coupled with beautiful sight when under full sails, offers something untouchable, which just does not transpire within a modern yacht.  In people’s minds, there is an instilled assumption that a classic yacht would most likely offer an unsightly, old-fashioned interior.  With ELEONORA and other similar yachts, this simply is not the case. 

ELEONORA does not simply follow Westward’s heritage of big racing yacht schooners, she also provides one with ultimate comfort and unforgettable experience, be it a racing in a classic regatta or as a luxury crewed charter.  Seducing with unparalleled opulence, this yacht is as modern as it can get with her interiors displaying the elegance of an old age with many of the fittings specially commissioned for her.  With her super yacht crew of 9, the service on board is also of an exceptionally high standard.  Add to this excellent value for money and you are certainly in for a treat as one of the best yacht charter options available.  With the up to date facilities on board, she offers a modern combination of tradition, elegance and security guaranteed by the state-of-the-art navigation and communication tools found on board.  We recommend chartering ELEONORA during the most popular periods in the year so as not to avoid the disappointment.

Luxury Sailing Yacht ELEONORA can accommodate 8 guests in a classically designed, fully panelled, yet very modern interior.  Her awesome, stylish woodwork throughout, and elegant, age correct fittings are discreetly updated with the most modern technology, including heating for colder climates or air-conditioning for the summer season.  The guests will three double and one twin cabin on board. All guest cabins are exquisitely finished and fully loaded with modern facilities such as individually controlled air conditioning, iPod docking station, and en-suite bathrooms.  Exquisite mahogany panelling abounds and the individual interior ornamental details follow the original designer detailing.
