Classic Schooner

The hull for this 51m Schooner is in build at the Made Shipyard in Holland and will be moved to Holland Jachtbouw during 2015, where she will be finished ready to launch in the Summer of 2016.

Once sea trials have been completed, the owner is planning another Translatlantic record attempt from New York to the Lizard, to beat the existing 10.5 days currently held by Windrose over 12 years. The previous record had been held by the infamous Charlie Barr for 98 years and stood at 12 days.

The new schooner is to have a mahogany Art Deco style interior by deVosdeVries. She will be fitted with a hybrid power installation which allows her to sail on electric power. Fully charged from sailing, the batteries can be loaded sufficiently for a full day of consumption. This exciting new build will be fitted with wooden spars, Dacron sails and traditionally hand crafted wooden blocks, all produced by specialist Dutch engineers. With around 1525 square metres of sail area, and an additional 823 square metres downwind, she will displace around 325 tons.
