Our Classic Sailing Yacht
Windweaver of Pennington offers the ultimate in classic yacht charter. She was the last yacht to emerge from the drawing board of the late Robert Clark, combining classical grace and elegance. She is a custom built classic yacht, made of steel and teak, and finished to the very highest standards. Windweaver was completed in Southampton in Spring 1999.
Exhilarating under sail, she is also reassuringly quiet under power with a range of 3,000 miles. This is classic sailing at its best.
Air-conditioned throughout, she is spacious and comfortable below decks. Her light and airy interior decor was chosen by designer Sue Stowell, who has used sympathetic colours to create an unusual freshness.
The master stateroom boasts a king size double berth and large en suite heads and shower room. The two double berth guest cabins have additional drop-down pullman berths and en suite heads and showers.
The wheelhouse is equipped with the latest navigation and communications aids including GPS, radar, VHF and SSB radio, and satellite telephone, fax, e-mail and wifi facilities.
On deck a large semi-circular area, seating six to eight comfortably, wraps around a table which rises from the cockpit floor. The decks are clad in teak cut from a single log. Windweaver is undoubtedly a classic yacht for charter. She will be enjoyed by the purist yachtsman as much as by those simply wishing for a sailing holiday to escape from the stresses of modern life.
