Sailing on the Herreshoff Schooner, Eleonora

Too much snow covering your fine yacht? In the northeast the sailing season is a distant dream, and hoisting and trimming sails seems foreign to those muscles now reserved for shoveling. How to remedy this on a fine winter’s day in February? GO [virtually] SAILING!

Eleonora is a replica of the mythic Nathaniel Herreshoff schooner, Westward, built in Bristol, RI in 1910. She was the fastest schooner of her day and this replica built in Holland in 2000, also impresses with her speed and beauty.

Beautiful wooden yachts such as Eleonora, tend to require lots of paint and varnish and Jamestown Distributors has it all! As we wait for the snow to melt and the season to crank up, it’s a great time to be working on putting coats down on your teak and mahogany pieces. From tapes to rollers, trays, brushes and all the paints, varnishes and coatings you could need – our store staff and call center is ready to help you select the right tools for your jobs. Let our top rated customer service reps get you started…and finished! So you can hit the water and sit back and admire your winter work.  Until then – Enjoy the sail!
