111-year-old sailing superyacht listed for sale

The 41.6m schooner sailing yacht, Invader, has been listed for sale with Mike Horsley of Edmiston. She has come onto the market with an asking price of €5.5 million.

Invader was launched on 11th July 1905 at a facility in Neponset, Boston, known as George Lawley & Son. She was commissioned by R.A. Rainey, and was designed by Albert Stanton Chesebrough, nephew of Nathaniel G. Herreshoff, a celebrated yacht design innovator, mechanical engineer and naval architect. 

Her range of uses has been diverse. She was used as a patrol vessel, as a floating restaurant capable of seating 200, and for whale-watching excursions. 

After a complete restoration, with C.E.D. La Spezia completing the naval architecture and engineering, and Anna Signorini refitting the interior, Invader now has all the amenities of a modern yacht while maintaining her original charm and character.

Today, Invader has accommodation for six guests in three cabins, and a 700hp Caterpillar engine provides a maximum speed of 12.5 knots.
