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.
