This is an opportunity to own one of the most prestigious vintage sailing yachts available at a very advantageous price. She has a great history and a classic beauty.
6 sleeps - 3 double cabins
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 87ft 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 demise 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.
Invader has an immense history behind it and is an iconic sailing yacht that has been refitted to the highest standards keeping its grace and beauty intact.
With 3 spacious cabins, all have been refitted following religiously the original fittings, riggings and fixtures of the boat with the latest materials and advanced systems. The last refits were done in 2003, 2019 and 2020.
She is truly a unique sailing vessel that will appeal to those owners wishing to have a real contact with the sea, to experience the real joy of sailing.
