About this Henk Tingen 46ft Yawl



ENDEAVOR is a thoroughly well-proven cruising yacht - a fine testament to her designer, Henk Tingen, and to her owners' dogged determination in bringing her back to life, rewarded by a most amazing period of voyaging. ENDEAVOR is fully equipped and ready to sail again very comfortably to points near and far.


Following pre-Second World War work as Chief Designer for Royal Huisman at Ronduite, Netherlands, Henk Tingen quietly carved a niche mostly to his own account as the designer of sensible, seaworthy and very good-looking steel yachts (and yacht kits), many of which were built at the KoK Shipyard, Vinkeveen. His name and reputation outside of Holland was perhaps best known in North America, and he acted as broker for many sales from the Netherlands to America via Holland America Yachts of New Rochelle, New York. He even shipped his own 40ft steel ketch PAMPUS to New York in 1952 to take part in that year's offshore racing season, including the Block Island and Bermuda races. After his death in 1998, Tingen's drawings archive was donated to Het Scheepvaartmuseum, Amsterdam, The Dutch National Maritime Museum, where ENDEAVOR's drawings lie.


Henk Tingen's name and reputation outside of Holland was perhaps best known in North America, and ENDEAVOR's commissioning owner, Robert R Rush, is believed to have been a dentist hailing from the Great Lakes. Launched as ENDEAVOR TOO, she completed two transatlantic voyages under his ownership.

Subsequently becoming MAR-VI in the hands of Florida-based George Samuels, in the late 1970's she was trucked north west to Washington State under the ownership of Bill Cumming who would later become long-serving Sheriff of San Juan County. Renamed ENDEAVOR, she was berthed at Friday Harbor.

In 1987 ENDEAVOR passed to the ownership of David and Candy Masters who, after an epic period of major restoration, relaunched her in 2002 and, after fitting out and quitting their jobs, set off in 2005 for a long period of nicely paced voyaging of the Americas - south on the west coast from Vancouver Island via the Galapagos and Chile to Cape Horn, and north via the South Atlantic Islands and the Caribbean to Maine, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. In 2016 the Masters set sail from Nova Scotia for a voyage back "home" to ENDEAVOR's roots, but as always this was to be no direct point-to-point passage, taking in over two summers: Newfoundland, Iceland, the Faeroe Islands, the west and north coasts of Scotland, including the Hebrides, Norway and Denmark - finally arriving in the Netherlands in September 2017.
