Eleonora was built at the Van der Graaf shipyard in Holland to be an exact replica to Westward, one of the fastest schooners in the world which was designed by Nathanael Greene Herreshoff. One hundred years on, Eleonora follows Westward’s heritage of big schooner racing, along with offering comfort, space and an unforgettable cruising experience. With no sacrifice to luxurious standards of comfort, Eleonora is astonishingly beautiful under sail with her slender hull cutting a pathway through the sea in an elegant combination of beauty and power.
