1902 Classic Townsend & Downey Schooner

Valencia, Spain

€9,500,000

S/Y “SHENANDOAH OF SARK” was built by Townsend-Downey Ship Building Co., New York and first delivered in 1902. This classic 3 Mast Gaff Topsail Schooner has been the pride and joy of numerous aristocrats, industrialists and magnates throughout her 122 years of history. Originally built to a design by Thomas E. Ferris, arguably the world's first super-yacht designer, she has enjoyed a wealth of refits throughout her recent history and now boasts an award-winning interior design by Terence Disdale. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a pristinely maintained classic sailing yacht which has been steeped in history from the moment when her keel was first laid.

“SHENANDOAH OF SARK” boasts a luxurious 5 cabin layout sleeping up to 8 adults and 3 children in absolute comfort and luxury. Additional accommodation for up to 12 crew members is also distributed across 6 crew cabins.

“SHENANDOAH OF SARK” was until very recently a successful charter vessel, if required, her new owner could re-establish this charter operation as a means of offsetting their ownership costs.

Owner's Comments

"Voyages on SHENANDOAH are a full immersion into the relaxing atmosphere of a bygone era, for not only her beauty but even her motion under sail resonates with a deep authenticity, which allows us a glimpse of the world through the sepia lens of the past. Her historic grace and timeless class give me great pleasure and it is this unique aspect of SHENANDOAH that I have endeavoured to preserve. SHENANDOAH will always be a treasure to myself, my family, the crew and key contractors who know her. Her upkeep and maintenance is not a chore or task but a responsibility to the past as well as the present. SHENANDOAH is a labour of love and it is my hope that her beauty may continue to grace the seas for many decades to come."
