The masterpiece of the Sailingbeauty-site is without any question this classical schooner designed by the famous boat builder Nathanael G. Herreshof. The ship is owned by an experienced Dutch sailing couple and has a length of 23 meters.
The owners will give you a warm welcome on their true classical beauty. Recent and in the past this ship has won regatta's all over the world, so their ship is not only suitable for having a relaxed holiday; it's also possible to do some serious sailing and try to break the speed record of 16.1 knots!!!
Although she is a spectacular racer, this ship also is very luxurious. It took the new owner more than 2,5 years for a complete restoration of this 90 years old vessel. But with much time, knowledge and love the rich atmosphere of the Edwardian era was kept alive.
Everything in the salon is handmade. From the vintage copper lamps, the coffee table made out of walnut and the library filled with an impressive amount of titles. There are three different and luxurious guest cabins, all with their own bathroom and shower. The crew cabin is separated from the guest aria
She is well equipped for all kinds of water sports; kite and windsurfing, a tender for wakeboarding and waterskiing and of course snorkels and fins to explore the underwater world. The latest techniques on safety, navigation, communication and entertainment, you name it!
The basis for 2009 will be around St.Tropez and the planned sailing area's are South France, Spain, Italy and the Baleares , Corsica and Sardinia.
From the owners, an example of a one week trip:
Day 1 (St. Tropez)
After arrival boarding in the harbour of St. Tropez. Warm welcome aboard, showing the cabins and the gear on the boat, getting settled and meet the crew. To have a nice start of your holiday we will offer you a luxury breakfast or brunch with fresh juices, fruits, fresh baked bread and coffee etc.
When you feel comfortable we will raise the sails, for a small trip. At a nice anchor place near to a beautiful beach you can relax or you can visit one of the famous beach clubs to enjoy a long gourmet lunch with ice cold rose wine.
Day 2 (St. Tropez – Agay)
After a good night sleep you will enjoy the first morning on board. In the morning you can swim and enjoy the sun. Our luxury breakfast with lot of fresh fruits makes a perfect start for a lovely day. Now it's time to leave, we will raze the sails with or without your help (you can choose). After a few hours sailing we approach Agay, a small French fisherman's village with a lovely beach. We will spend the night over here.
Day 3 (Agay-Cannes)
Today we will go more eastbound to visit Cannes here is a good place for a city tour. Cannes receives a massive dose of publicity each year because of the Cannes Film Festival, and there is a good reason why the film festival resides there. The city offers the panache and glitz that the movie industry seeks, plus a whole lot more.The beautiful curving Croisette boardwalk, spanning the entire bay and connecting the two ports, offers a sandy beach and the famous hotels and designer shops that Cannes is known for. The main shopping street - Rue d'Antibes, is just behind the Croisette.
Day 4 (Cannes - illes de lérins - Juan les Pins)
In the middle of week we will meet The "Iles de Lérins" that lie just off the coast of Cannes. Between the Islands there is a popular place were we drop the anchor, you can relax and swim in this beautiful Area.
There are a few Cafes and nice restaurants and history buffs can visit the jail where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned.
In the late afternoon our target is Juan les Pins. This is a good place to visit some clubs. Their are some great Jazz Festivals in Juan les Pins. Maybe you're visit to us is during one of these festivals, otherwise the clubs offer enough entertainment.
Day 5 (Juan les pins - Villefranche)
On our schedule today the old City Villefranche a quiet and beautiful port. This medieval port has the requisite red roofs, vaulted passages over cobblestone streets, and a distinctive church. The beautiful views of the town and surrounding hills and cliffs make this a fantastic stopover, before we go to Monaco.
Day 6 (Villefranche - Monaco)
We set sail for Monaco, the city that's almost synonymous with style, money, gambling and Formula 1 in the end of May. Monaco is a stunningly beautiful town/country with the Grimaldi Palace, impressive mountainous backdrop and architecture (where it hasn't been overrun by sleek high-rises that hold all the millionaires). It's definitely worth a stop on any itinerary.
Day 7 (Monaco – Beaulieu)
The last Day of this Week we will leave the harbour ore anchor place from Monaco and raze the sail to Beaulieu.
Beaulieu is a pretty seaside resort and port right in the heart of the French Riviera. Here we say good buy. We think you will miss your easy life on board of our classical beauty.
