Puritan is a yacht like no other. Designed in 1929 by world famous naval architect John Gale Alden and built at the Electric Boat Company in Connecticut, she is the epitome of America’s acclaimed tradition for luxurious sailing.
At 126 ft (38 metres), this gaff rigged schooner is recognised today as undoubtably one of the most important classic yachts in the world, and one of the very few whose authenticity has been entirely retained.
Puritan’s history from her very foundation is extraordinary. Constructed using innovative techniques in steel manufacture, her success paved the way for a revolutionary new form of submarine construction which aided the allies’ victory of the Second World War. During her long life she has witnessed many of the most dramatic and important events of the 20th century, even serving in the Navy to protect the United States west coast in 1942, as well as active involvement in historical and scientific research with top international museums.
Mystery and intrigue has surround much of her long life, adding further wonder to the experience of being aboard as she explores the Mediterranean coastlines. The moment you step aboard Puritan is a moment never to forget, her historical legacy so imbued within her form, she is a class of her own.
