The Endeavour is one of the most beautiful and well-known examples of the classic yacht. She belongs to the class of "J-Class yachts", is 130 feet in length and was first launched in 1934.
The yacht was specially designed and constructed by Camper & Nicholsons in England for racing in the America’s Cup.T.O.M. Sopwith issued two challenges with the Endeavour that went down in yachting history: in 1934 and again in 1937 he attempted to vanquish the dominant New York Yacht Club in the America’s Cup. The New York Yacht Club only just managed to avert defeat in 1937, when the challenger won the first two of five races. The Endeavour lost the third and decisive race on the last beat against the skipper of the Rainbow, Harold Vanderbilt, who steered a better course. This remained a controversial defeat, however, because of a foul made by the Rainbow, which the New York Yacht Club refused to negotiate about. According to American, but not British regulations, no protest flag was displayed by the Endeavour when the foul occurred. The defeat depressed Sopwith and his crew so much that they didn’t succeed in winning either of the two last races.
In 1984, following a five-year overhaul, the Endeavour was put back into service as a charter yacht and can now be chartered for 65,000 US$ a week, including a 9-man crew.
