Lone Fox, a 65′ classic ketch, is a true gentlemen’s yacht. Designed for Colonel Whitbread, original sponsor of the ‘Whitbread Around the World Race’, the Robert Clark teak ketch is known internationally for its speed and grace. Launched on the shores of Scotland in 1957, Lone Fox was constructed to Lloyds Class +100A1 Yacht Specifications. She was the Colonel’s personal yacht until his passing in 1983. After an interesting and illustrious journey she found herself in Ventura, CA, to have a significant master craftsman refit in the mid- to late-1990s. This work brought the boat back to its original glory and inspired a racing campaign along the west coast of the United States and the Caribbean. In the early 2000s Lone Fox sailed to St. Barth’s, its home for the next 15 years. She continued to race and win multiple classic regattas.
