About this 162' Van der Graaf Gaff Schooner

English

Eleonora was launched in March 2000 as an exact replica of the schooner Westward, in those days designed by N.G. Herreshoff. In 1910 Westward was arguably one of the most famous and best known racing schooners in the world and sailed successfully against racing yachts like Britannia, Lulworth, Meteor II and won numerous trophies. Eleonora was built at the Van der Graaf shipyard in Holland and after her relaunch the heritage of Westward awoke again to show her astonishing beauty under sail, her slender hull cutting a pathway through the sea, an perfect combination of elegance and power with no sacrifice to luxurious standards of comfort. Her staterooms and the entire interior display the ambience and exclusivity of another age. Eleonora not only follows Westward’s heritage of big schooner racing but she also offers comfort and space, unforgettable cruising and relaxation experience. After a major refit Eleonora is now for sale in a magnificent state ready for the next races in the Caribbean or Meds.

History

Eleonora is an exact replica of the schooner Westward. Westward was launched on March 31 1910, as hull number 692 at the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. in Bristol, RI, USA. She was then arguably one of the most famous and best known racing schooners in the world. She was designed by Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, the ‘Wizard of Bristol’, the designer of the America’s Cup defenders which turned back all six challenges from 1893 to 1920. Westward was undoubtedly the fastest schooner in the world in 1910 and following years. With Captain Charlie Barr, who was one of the finest racing skippers in the world at her helm, she sailed successfully against racing yachts such as Britannia, Lulworth, Meteor II, and won numerous trophies. For thirty seven years, Westward graced the yachting scene and represented all that was best in yacht design and workmanship.
