This is an opportunity to own one of the most prestigious vintage sailing yachts in the world. She has a great history and a breath taking beauty. With 3 spacious cabins offering accomodation for 6 guests (the master cabin is full beam), owners and guests can enjoy one of the top sailing experiences for lovers of classic yachts. Invader has an amazing deck area offering 2 dining options, there is a sun awning that covers the entire dining area or a selection of individual awnings to provide shade where required. She had substantial works completed in 2018, following religiously the original fittings, riggings and fixtures of the boat with the latest materials and advanced systems. The interiors have been beautifully maintained and she exudes a real charm befitting of her years.
The story of the restoration of Invader is as extraordinary as the yacht herself. Designed by the nephew of the great Nathaniel G Herreshoff and one of his many disciples, INVADER shows all the signs of the great designs of the “Wizard of Bristol”. With her nearly 87 ft of Main Boom and 40ft of Bowsprit, her dimensions are extraordinary, as is her performance in light winds. As with all these great yachts her history is a mixture of triumphs, disasters, film stars, glamour, and neglect. Now after a period of very little use following the passing of her latest owner, the heirs are very keen to move this masterpiece on and have consequently priced her at a very sensible level. For an owner who wishes to have one of the great classic yachts of the world, in a very little used condition, and with a great racing and cruising future ahead of her, INVADER would be an obvious choice.
