Classic yachts are monohull yachts but of an older vintage often made from wood. Due to the classic lines and low roof, there is less headroom inside these yachts. Due to the sail configuration of a classic yacht, more crew are normally needed onboard to assist with hosting the multiple sails and additional duties. A classic yacht charter vacation is ideal for traditionalists!

There are some beautiful modern day classic yachts that have been built in recent years some built from wood but most built from aluminum.  The designer Hoek Design Naval Architects has designed some fabulous vessels; for example Atalante, a 90 ft modern day classic built in 2009. The stunning Superyacht Meteor built by Royal Huisman in 2007 is 169 ft/52 m in length and offers luxury accommodation for 6 guests in 3 staterooms with a crew of nine to look after you.  Superyacht Erica XII designed by Hoek Design Naval Architects and built by Vitters Shipyard was launched in 2010, she is 172 ft in length built in aluminum with a classic design hull but fitted with a Bermudian Rig instead of the classic Gaff Rig.

These classic yachts not only look beautiful on the outside, but inside their interiors are ‘classic beauty’ with an abundance of wood and traditional style furniture, many of which are antiques.

There have been several modern day J Class Yachts built in recent years that are now referred to as Supers Js, namely Hanuman built by Royal Huisman and Rainbow built by Holland Jachtbouw.

Some of these beauties are also available for charter during classic yacht regattas like the St Barths Bucket held at the end of March, Antigua Classics Week held in April, and Les Voiles de St Tropez held at the end of September.
