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.

Eleonora not only follows Westward’s heritage of big schooner racing but also offers, with her comfort and space, an unforgettable cruising and relaxing experience.

Eleonora was built at the Van der Graaf shipyard in Holland and was launched in March 2000. Since then, she has successfully participated in a number of classic sailing regattas and hosted on board a number of high profile guests during her charter activities.

Eleonora shows astonishing beauty under sail, her slender hull cutting a pathway through the sea in an elegant combination of beauty and power.

Over one hundred years after the launch of Westward, we are again able to appreciate the awesome majesty and grandeur of this superb classic sailing yacht underway, sails filled as she surges forward, her white wake streaming behind.

With no sacrifice to luxurious standards of comfort, her staterooms and the entire interior display the ambience and elegance of another age.
