Sir Thomas Sopwith

Sir Thomas Sopwith
Seen at Hamilton Island Marina in the Whitsundays, luxury Yacht Charter.

From a dilapidated mooring-minder with a bargain-basement purchase price, Sir Thomas Sopwith is now millions of dollars worth of gleaming fittings and deck hardware, teak decks and toe rails, embroidered pillows, imported parchment and leather-stitched lampshades, American oak interior and stainless steel edgings.

Designed by the UK’s Robert Clark, the 72ft long, 14ft 6in beam ketch was launched in England in the early 1970s and bequeathed to the Ocean Youth Club of Great Britain by the English aviation pioneer and yachtsman, Sir Thomas Sopwith...

English aviation pioneer Thomas Sopwith’s company produced more than 18,000 British World War I aircraft for the allied forces, including 5,747 of the famous Sopwith Camel single-seat fighters. He was just as passionate about his sailing, challenging for the America’s Cup... with his J-Class yachts Endeavour and Endeavour II in the 1930s... was inducted into the America’s Cup Hall of Fame in 1995.
