In February of 1988, R. C. Keefe, the curator at the St. Francis Yacht Club wrote, “Escapade is truly a classic in the annals of yachts and yachting. She is one of the most well known yachts in the world today and well deserves the reputation she carries so proudly.”
“Escapade” is truly a world-renowned yacht and she represents the last of a very important period in construction of wooden sailing yachts built in America. Yachts of similar vintage have been restored to their former glory such as “Bolero”, “Chubasco” and “Athene”. Here is your opportunity to sail into history by restoring an American Classic, the 72’ yawl “Escapade”.
