Ordered by Harold Vanderbilt on November 2nd, 1912 and launched May 17, 1913.
“When racing was resumed after the War the fleet was small but the schooners were of the first rank and well handled, the most conspicuous being the Vagrant, owned by Harold S. Vanderbilt, Commodore of the club from 1922 to 1924. He sailed her almost faultlessly and was successful in winning both the Astor and King’s Cups two years running, an achievement that has never been equalled.” The Major Yachts’ by Bennett Fisher, Published in ‘Sailing Craft’ in 1928.

Royal Huisman will stripped her out and ‘reanimated’ her graceful lines with a new crew quarter. Technical installation like the engine, generator, heating, air condition and so on will be smartly installed. Dykstra Naval Architects will redesign her schooner-rig with yankee, staysail, main staysail and queen fisherman. Rondal will build new aluminum masts including a furling system for the fisherman sail and mainsail.
Relaunch at Royal Huisman, Zaandam, Holland.
