Ticonderoga 1936

Ticonderoga 1936

Launched in 1936. Many consider Ticonderoga the crowning design achievement of L. Francis Herreshoff. Francis Herreshoff designed the 72-foot ketch Ticonderoga to be a fast day boat for Harry Noyes and his family.

But he designed her with the flowing lines below the water and breathtaking clipper-yacht aesthetics above. Big Ti, as she was known, startled very one with her speed on all points of sail. Racing her soon took center stage. Many yachting connaisseurs consider her the most beautiful ocean racer ever built.

Since she was launched in 1936 as Tioga II, she was recorded more ocean-racing victories, especially first-overall honors, than any yacht in history. She has been refitted as a luxurious cruising boat, but her current owner frequently races. Along with Endeavour and Shamrock V, Ticonderoga is the most famous racing yacht still sailing today.
