A sailing machine which is traditional and graceful SHAMROCK V is an experience an unusual thrill under sail. Her interior is sumptuously finished in bird’s eye maple wood. S/Y SHAMROCK is not only a great performer in regattas but she is the perfect yacht for relaxed leisure sailing in style.

Some of the history of the classic yacht:
Built for Sir Thomas Lipton's fifth and last America's Cup challenge Shamrock V was Designed by Nicholson and launched in 1930. She was the first British yacht to be built to the new J Class Rule and is the only remaining J class yacht to have been built in wood. After her launch has been continually upgraded including some changes to her hull shape and rudder. Her rig has also been modified to create the most effective racing sail plan but she was no match for the faster US design "Enterprise".
