British “Big Class”

Built in 1920 in Great Britain and originally named “Terpsichore”, she raced against boats like “Moonbeam IV” and “Britannia” as part of the renaissance of the big sailing class after World War I and was considered one of the Big Five boats. In 1924 she passed into the ownership of the Lord of Lulworth who renamed her Lulworth. She took part in 258 Reggatas, winning first place 59 times. She continued to be present at races well into the 1930s and with the involvement in World War II, the wooden boat ended up on the River Hamble to be used as a houseboat. Wanting to shed the scars of the past and refresh its glamour it remained for a time in a shipyard in Viareggio, Italy where it was refurbished. With an overall length of 46 metres (151’10ft), a beam of 7.6 metres, a draught of 5.6 metres and the ability to accommodate up to 8 people in 4 cabins, as well as a crew of 12 – including the captain – she is one of the most magnificent classic yachts of the last century.
