The sailing yacht Endeavour is a 130 foot J Class classic sailing sloop which was launched in 1934 and embodies one of the most formidable and famous sailing yachts in the world. Endeavour was designed and built by the Camper and Nicholsons Yard in England as one of the yachts to challenge for the ultimate sailing yacht race - the America's Cup. She came closer to winning the race than any other challenger up to that time, with only an amateur crew sailing her to the finish line. Upon her return to England, she dominated the British yacht racing scene for many years. In 1938 she was laid up for the duration of World War II, retiring from her exceptional racing career of four years. The Endeavor has been renowned as the most beautiful J class classic yacht ever built.
