The Sir Winston Churchill is a 3-masted schooner, designed in classic topsail style and created to respond to the challenge of entering a British-built competitor in the Tall Ships race. From her launch in 1966 until 2000, the ship was used for sailing training, carrying up to 46 trainees and instructors, and won numerous racing prizes. She has been entirely refitted and converted for luxury cruiser, strictly retaining her original beautiful lines and seaworthy nature. The huge deck space, composed of thick teak planks, includes a bimini-sheltered area on the foredeck for open-air cocktails and dining, while the entire deck forward of the bridge is available for sunbathing. The salon comprises a formal dining room, a comfortable lounge area and a separate coffee and games corner. All interior spaces, with beautifully inlaid teak and ash floor, are finished in mahogany and wild cherry, with watercolours and pastel furnishings that combine to evoke the elegant ambience of the 1930s. A traditional companionway leads up to the spacious staterooms. The six spacious cabins, made of traditional woodwork, are decorated in such a way that even without the bed settings, the ambience is serene and delightful. The Master and VIP cabins feature Queen-size beds. There are two standard Double cabins with sofa (one of which can be joined by a division with bow Twin cabin), and two Twin cabins, all fully air-conditioned, with en-suite facilities and hi-fi audio.
