The Sir Winston Churchill is a 3-masted schooner, designed by Camper and Nicholson and built by Richard Dunston Ltd in Hessle, Yorkshire in 1966. 

She was originally built to respond to the challenge of competing in a Tall Ships race, at a time where no other English vessel existed to enter the race. Under the patronage of the Duke of Edinburgh and with funds of public support, The Sir Winston Churchill was launched in 1966 and used under the management of the Sail Training Association for sail training.  She participated in races worldwide and won many awards.

She was taken out of service in 2000 to make way for 2 new sail training ships and was then purchased by her current owner.

Approximate Dimensions

Length Overall  134ft 9ins 41.1m
Waterline Length  103ft 1inch 31.42m
Beam  24ft 9ins 7.58m
Draft  16ft 1ins 4.9m
Displacement  333 tonnes  

She has been sympathetically and carefully refitted to create luxurious air-conditioned accommodation  for up to 12 guests. The sail handling systems have been simplified with headsail furling and electric winches. However, she still retains her classic good looks and has a real sailing ship feel. During her refit she was thoroughly inspected and ultra sound tested and no weak areas of structure were found.

She has a steel hull and superstructure. Mechanical power is by twin Iveco 360 Hp diesel engines (new in 2002).  She has a cruising range, under power, of around 1,000 nautical miles.
