Invader was built in 1905 at George Lawley & Sons Shipyard in Boston USA.  In 1926 she set the record time in the Transpac Race from Los Angeles to Honolulu.  She has had legends of film such as Charlie Chaplin grace her decks , he met actress Paulette Goddard onboard whom he was later to marry.  Her history is unique and rich with stories of a bygone era. 

Following her refit in 2000-2003 she has been restored to a graceful vessel with all the comforts and technologies available today.  The owner kept her largely in the Caribbean.  Now Invader is available for charter in the mediterranean providing a truly unique experience for its guests.

Below deck there is a spacious saloon and dining area.  Accomodation consists of 3 well appointed cabins consisting of master suite (full beam) and two twins.  On deck there is ample space for relaxation and entertianing with seated dining for 6.
