ESCAPADE, 73′ Rhodes/Luders yawl

We had yachts exactly like ESCAPADE in mind when we created Save a Classic. She fits the profile perfectly: a grand and famous creation now ... in jeopardy.

Designed by Phil Rhodes of Cox & Stephens and built by Luders Marine in 1938 for ocean racing as well as cruising, this yawl has sailed on both coasts as well as on the Great Lakes and in Europe. She's competed in all the major races and with the very best yachts of the era like BOLERO and TICONDEROGA—and surely deserves a proper restoration.

She's a centerboarder, shallower and wider than her contemporries, with a cavernous interior. For either private use or chartering, she'd be terrific. There's space for a variety of interior layouts offering private accomodations, and with her shallow draft of under 8′ (cb raised) she can sail and anchor in places off limits to most yachts of her size. Her divided rig makes for easy handling while cruising, yet her light-weather sails will keep a racing crew busy while she flies along on a reach—her best point of sail.
