This sensational yacht was built by the Townsend & Downey Shipyard with naval architecture by Theodore Ferris. Shenandoah of Sark was one of Ferris’ crowning achievements and is the only one of his designs still sailing today.
Born in one of the 20th Century’s most glamorous eras, the classic superyacht Shenandoah of Sark (delivered in 1902) embodies the grace and elegance of the Golden Age of Yachting. She has raced across oceans and circumnavigated the globe many times.
In the 1990s, the sailing yacht underwent extensive restoration at McMullen & Wing and was recognized at the 1996 ShowBoats International Awards for Best Classic Yacht Restoration. Over the years, this sailing yacht has welcomed guests ranging from royals and important families to gamblers and smugglers.
The sailing yacht’s interior is striking with white bookshelves filled with well-read books, stunning wooden doors and beds, brass handles and fittings, and carved glass on the light buoys throughout. A grand piano in the main salon reigns supreme in the space. There are also state-of-the-art loudspeakers, TV and communications systems.
This gorgeous three-mast topsail gaff schooner is able to accommodate up to 11 guests, eight adults and three children, in four charming staterooms. Shenandoah of Sark’s master stateroom features a double bed and a single bed, large en-suite bath with his-and-her sinks and a beautiful skylight. The stateroom also has a secret door behind the bookshelf that leads to the navigation station. Additional staterooms aboard this charter yacht include three double-bed staterooms, with one of the staterooms having a detachable single bunk. Her crew, formed by a team of 11 professionals, are eagerly looking forward to taking guests on a unique journey into the waves, lulled by the sounds of the wind and the waves.
