Victoria of Strathearn
Camper & Nicolson 2001
Sparkman & Stephens chief designer Bill Langan oversaw the lines for the 91-foot Victoria of Strathearn, a ketch built by Camper & Nicholsons in England. The owner wanted a yacht that was ideal for worldwide cruising, a requirement that led Langan to include a generously sized guest cockpit amidships, in addition to a working cockpit with controls aft for the crew.
When the owners weren’t using her, they offered Victoria of Strathearn for charter. Sparkman & Stephens advertised her as having “a British country house feel” and said her “powerful performance under sail is difficult to resist and will prove to be a most memorable experience.”
