Endeavour, a 130 foot J-Class sloop, was commissioned by British airplane magnate Sir T.O.M. Sopwith to challenge the New York Yacht Club for the America 's Cup in 1934. Hailed as the most beautiful J-Class yacht ever created, the Endeavour was the most impressive British sailboat to ever race in the Americas Cup series. Built for speed as well as beauty, under the supervision of Englishman Frank Murdoch, she narrowly lost to America's Rainbow.
Widely regarded as one of the world's most beautiful yachts, Endeavour was returned to England and raced until 1938 with much success. After WWII she passed through many hands and fell into disrepair. In 1984 she was purchased by Elizabeth Meyer of Rhode Island and restored to her former glory.
today she is one of the most breathtaking sights on the water. To take helm of such a yacht is to experience pure power, grace, and speed.
