The J Class Endeavour yacht is a sailing yacht that was originally built in 1934 for Sir Thomas Sopwith, a British aviation pioneer and yachtsman. The Endeavour yacht was one of the most famous and successful racing yachts of the J Class, a class of sailboats that were used for racing during the 1930s.
The Endeavour yacht was designed by the naval architect Tore Holm and built by the Camper and Nicholsons shipyard in Gosport, England. She was designed to be fast and sleek, with a 131-foot (40-meter) wooden hull, a towering 173-foot (53-meter) mast, and a total sail area of around 9,000 square feet (836 square meters).
The Endeavour yacht competed in the 1934 America's Cup race against the American defender Rainbow, but was ultimately defeated in a closely contested series of races. The yacht was then sold to a new owner and continued to compete in various racing events throughout the 1930s.
After a period of neglect and disrepair, the Endeavour yacht was purchased by a new owner in the 1980s and underwent a major restoration that brought her back to her former glory. Today, the Endeavour yacht is still actively sailed and is considered one of the most iconic and beautiful racing yachts of all time.
