About THE YACHT

The last yacht to emerge from the drawing board of the late Robert Clark, she combes classical grace and elegance with the latest in technical innovation. She ia 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.

Sailing the Mediterranean
Enjoy a Mediterranean sailing holiday, island-hopping in the Aegean. A sailing cruise holiday on our classic wooden yacht is the perfect way to discover the Greek islands.
Windweaver was the last yacht to emerge from the drawing board of the late Robert Clark, combining classical grace and elegance. Windweaver is powerful, very forgiving at sea and ideal for exploring the Ionian Sea.
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.
