Ready for the next level
The Ingomar steel hull is for sale. The story of Ingomar started back in 1903 when railway magnate Morton Plant phoned Nathanel Herreshoff. His order was simple; he wanted a winning Class B schooner to race and cruise American waters and head over to Europe to win the much-coveted Cape May Cup. Until that time all Herreshoff designed racing yachts had been single mast and with Ingomar the wizard of Bristol turned out the first of nine extraordinary successful schooners. In his notes Herreshoff calls Ingomar “a wonderfully good schooner that easily proved to be the fasted of his kind”. Carlie Bar, by then three times America’s Cup winner, became Ingomar’s captain and he too was well pleased. After crossing the Atlantic in 15 days, he wrote to Herreshoff: “Ingomar is the best of cruising yachts you will find anywhere.” Little did he know then, because when he started racing Ingomar, that extraordinary cruising yacht brought home 17 trophies in a single season.
