Description

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.
