Trudeau Epicurus: First Look

trudeau classic sailing yachts

Trudeau Classic Yachts has a remarkably long history and an unparalleled reputation as a boatbuilder in Second Life. In fact, over more than five years, TYC’s basic theme has never really changed. They make exquisite emulations of RL nautical designs, and then infuse uncompromising sail scripts tuned to match each sailboat’s Real-Life performance. TYC then rather relentlessly tests the product on SL’s unpredictable waters.

Through all that time and effort, TCY’s visionary, Jacqueline Trudeau, has always had an affection for the simple, serviceable vessels in RL that evolved along America’s North Atlantic coast. Much of her inspiration comes from the classic Herreshoff design tradition, and I’m pretty sure sailors agree that match is pretty good. Last week I was out running along the harbor I was visiting, and I nearly had to stop because I was laughing so hard. I saw a cluster of Trudeau 12 ‘s… errr, I mean Herreshoff 12.5’s… all moored together with their tents up. Usually I smile when something in SL seems to match reality, but this time it was the other way ’round; Reality looked like Second Life Sailing. That perceptual collision seems to happen more and more frequently these days, and its pretty fascinating.

Trudeau Epicurus Cat-Boat

I’m bringing all this up now because Trudeau’s released a new version of one of her favorite yacht designs… the new launch is a Cat-Boat. In fact it’s everything you might expect from that classic, beamy, multi-purpose family of vessels. However, this time it’s not named after a Real Life one-design, and it’s not dedicated to a legendary sea captain.

Trudeau’s new Cat-Boat is named EPICURUS , and it’s dedicated to Epicurus Emmons , a much-loved SL sailor who died recently. Epi was the Commodore of Fishers Island Yacht Club -SL, and he was much loved by sailors grid-wide. I knew him for four years, as we traded jokes and plotted race courses…

Epi loved any and all boats in SL , but his favorite trainer boat was the Trudeau Leetle-Cat. As time went on, he waxed enthusiastic over SL’s Dutch Skutsjes too. The two boat had major differences, but they actually shared a similar tradition and intent. Like the American cat-boats, Skutsjes were common work-about vessels. They might race for glory one day, then transport manure the next. That was part of the humor, the history, and the sheer human fun .

It seems fitting that JT would craft the boat she personally knew and revered and dedicate it in Epi’s memory. It’s not a fancy racer or sim-filling epic megalith; it’s a Cat-Boat. It’s a boat any and all sailors can enjoy.

Performance

I admit I haven’t yet added up all the numbers needed to give you polar plots or get you a racing advantage in this boat… but I don’t apologize for that, I think that’s not really the point.

On the other hand, I’ve been banging around North Sea in Epi’s Cat, and I’ve tagged along with the Leeward Cruising Fleet for a long distance collecting performance data (that Admiral Duck guy was at the wheel 🙂 ). I therefore think I can give you a good, quick view of the features:

trudeau classic sailing yachts

Although I admit the boat’s beamy enough to transport manure, I’m guessing you’ll prolly have other plans for it; there’s a functional cabin aboard that sleeps two comfortably. 🙂 Here’s a closer view of the gangway and inner sanctum:

Here’s a copy of the sit locations on the boat as well, taqken from the Trudeau website:

Exec Summary

Let me add a last summary comment on this ‘First-Look’ post about the Trudeau Epicurus Cat:

Although the boat is slower and more forgiving than the litany of Trudeau Classic racers, please understand that’s an intentional part of the boat’s design. Don’t assume this boat has hobbled scripts, or that it’s any less-featured than the best boat Trudeau Yachts can make. As one small example, let me emphasize the boat comes with a complete set of modifiable hull and script-enabled sail design changes, and that all the crew can hike, share sail responsibilities, and even borrow the damn boat when the skipper is off-line. 🙂

Remember, this boat is an homage to Epi…

It’s smart, it’s fun, it’s full-featured… and it’s a fantastic, flirty voyager.

We all know that Epi wouldn’t have it any other way.

It’s so exciting always, when a new boat is released from Trudeau line. Epicurus is not a fast one, but still nice for cruising, as you said. You wrote a great review in general. 🙂

' src=

I’ve collected lots of numbers on this boat, but frankly, as with Hepcat, I’m thinking: This boat is so much fun, forget about the numbers, just go sail it!

But if you ever tell anyone Jane said that… That numbers were not important, then I’ll come stomp all over you in my clamming boots! 🙂 Thx Tim!

' src=

OOOO Clamming boots 🙂 Semi Seriously I always loved the lines of the Jaqcat and this looks like a lovely equivilant. Sometimes it isn’t about speed or upwind performance, its about having fun as you wanter around SL waterways and looking good while you do it.

' src=

It’s a great boat, cat or not, as use to be from the Trudeau shipyard. With a friendly spirit that blows her rig.

Thanks Jaquie! eM

I just bought this boat and am really enjoying it!

Love this boat

TRULY CLASSIC

Combining the elegance of the 1930s with modern underwater hull configurations, Truly Classic yachts are built in semi series. The idea behind the Truly Classic concept is that clients can base their new yacht on an existing proven hull design where the majority of the design decisions have already been made.  The yachts can then be built semi custom where the interior- and deck layout, draft and sailplan can be customized. The central design concept calls for a flush deck boat with an aft cockpit, low deckhouse, sweeping sheer, moderate freeboard and long overhangs to bow and stern. Other features shared by all Truly Classics are their keyhole shaped cockpits, fingertip control, exceptional balance and an optimal use of interior volume. The idea and name for these boats came from a yacht created in partnership with the late Michael Peacock, former captain of the British Admiral’s Cup team. Launched in 1994, Truly Classic (later Zephyr, now named Savy) set new standards by winning the Spirit of Tradition Class at Antigua Classic Week three years in a row, as well as the overall “Med Cup” for Spirit of Tradition yachts. This success attracted other owners interested in a similar concept in various sizes, and Truly Classic has since become that rarest of breeds in the yachting industry – a brand name in its own right.

trudeau classic sailing yachts

The best classical sailing yachts available to charter

While the industry is brimming with sensational contemporary yachts, there is nothing quite like handing yourself over to the elements and discovering the joys of a classic sailing yacht. With plenty of vessels to choose from, we’ve rounded up some of the finest classic sailing yachts out there and showcased the very best of what the market has to offer…

Shenandoah of Sark

Stats: 55m, Townsend & Downey , 1902, 10 guests, 8 crew

Highlights: With ornate, elegant and intrinsically classic interiors, this 104-year-old 54-metre sailing yacht is undoubtedly one of the most sophisticated vessels available for charter. She is a three-masted gaff-rigged schooner that emits a delicate antiquity, but don’t let this fool you, as Shenandoah of Sark is a supercharged sailor who's happy to lean into the waves for some adrenaline-filled action. Her glittering history is filled with aristocracy, royalty and even smugglers and she’s hosted fabulous parties in her time. During the 80's, Shenandoah of Sark became a superstar of sorts, used as the backdrop for Vogue magazine photoshoots and Rod Stewart music videos.

With a flexible configuration that allows for additional berths if required, accommodation is for 10 on board, each set within cabins that are packed with books and rich oil paintings. There's also a baby Steinway on board, taking pride of place in the main saloon. Shenandoah of Sark  is the embodiment of the golden age of sailing, and promises one of the most elegant charter yachts one can opt for.

Shenandoah of Sark is available for charter with Burgess from €125,000 per week.

Stats: 40.2m, Camper and Nicholsons, 1899 (2019) 12 guests, 6 crew

Highlights: Originally designed by Charles Nicholson and built in 1899 at Camper and Nicholson in Gosport, England, Black Swan is up there with one of the most important classic sailing yachts in the charter fleet. As a racing yacht, her history is filled with accolades such as winning the King’s Cup at the beginning of the 20th century, while she offers remarkable comfort for cruising.

Over the years, she has undergone several changes and different rig configurations, and at one stage she was renamed Changrilla . She was then rechristened Black Swan in the 1960s and, today, after an extensive restoration project, she is now carrying a gaff-rig, designed by the Faggioni Yacht Design Studio and built by Harry Spencer.

Black Swan is available to charter with Camper and Nicholsons with a weekly rate from €50,000.

Stats : 65.3m, Camper & Nicholsons, 1927 (2007), 11 guests, 15 crew

Highlights: Often considered a masterpiece in sailing circles, 65.3 metre Creole i s an iconic three-masted schooner in impeccable condition. Delivered in 1927, she has an illustrious history including service as a mine-hunter in the Second World War and a slew of notable owners who have looked after her during her lifetime, from members of the Gucci fashion family to Stavros Niarchos of the Greek shipping dynasty. Boasting a sail area of 1,040 square metres, Creole can hit top speeds of up to 16 knots when the winds are right, and her impressive performance at sea has seen her collect a number of awards at international regattas including the Grimaldi Trophy Les Voiles des Saint-Tropez.

Timeless styling is evident throughout her interior, especially in the pastel-coloured saloon and dining room, and she also offers al fresco dining for enjoying warmer weather.

Creole is available for charter with Burgess with a weekly rate from €189,000.

Stats: 35m, Brooke Marine, 1938 (2016), 10 guests, 5 crew

Highlights: With a beautifully classical exterior, Eros is everything you would hope to find from a classic schooner – being both remarkably elegant, and filled with history and a sensational performer out on the water. Named after the Greek goddess of love, she retains much of her original features like teak panelling in the dining saloon - a nod to her original art-deco interior.

Those looking for the thrill of sailing can take the helm at her classic wooden wheel, while others can kick back on a sun lounger at the bow. As the sun sets, guests can dine on deck thanks to a large teak table with wraparound seating for up to 10. Eros also boasts a well-stocked toybox, carrying kayaks, deep-sea fishing gear, paddle boards and equipment for waterskiing and wakeboarding.

Eros is available to charter with Classic Charters with a weekly rate from $44,000.

Stats: 63.4m, Holland Jachtbouw, 2010 (2021) 10 guests, 10 crew

Highlights: Perfectly equipped to facilitate the perfect family sailing holiday, Athos strikes that all-important balance between high-powered performance and luxury living at sea. She may be on the newer end of the classic sailing yacht scale, but no less remarkable offering all the stylistic qualities of a truly classic sailing yacht. Her vast exterior deck offers plenty of space for socialising, with a shaded dining area on the aft and a private deck area adjoining the master suite.

The yacht recently returned to the charter market having undergone an extensive refit in 2021, which included a 1.25-metre extension at the stern and a total rebuild of the interior. Hoek Design once again stepped in to oversee the naval architecture, interior styling and layout changes of the guest accommodation, main saloon, crew service areas and deckhouse. Her styling is now warm and inviting, which has made her a more sophisticated offering.

Athos is available to charter with Y.CO from $220,000 per week.

Eugenia VII

Stats : 33m, Turquoise, 2009 (2014), 8 guests, 4 crew

Highlights: With her classical lines, thrilling performance and sumptuous interiors, Eugenia VII is the stuff of fairy tales. She may fall into the newer category having been delivered in 2009, but this only plays to her advantage. She was designed by Hoek Design, who endowed her with a remarkably well-balanced profile and a classical feel. Inside, she’s filled with wood – contributing nicely to her classical feel – and has plenty of beautiful furnishings and sumptuous seating. A top yacht for charter , she is designed perfectly for socialising and entertaining with family and friends, Eugenia VII is an all-rounder, fit for those after some serious sailing as well as those who would prefer to kick back and bask in the sunshine.

Eugenia VII is available to charter with Fraser with a weekly rate from €44,000.

trudeau classic sailing yachts

Like a true modern classic yacht, our Eagles all have a classic look with the characteristic long overhangs, classic yacht lines and high gloss mahogany varnished exterior woodwork. The looks are completed by the Edson classic steering pedestal with Ritchie stainless steel compass and the stainless steel 7 spoke steering wheel with high gloss varnished mahogany rim. The interior of our modern classic sailboats can be made in different styles from matt varnished mahogany for a truly classic look or a classic styled white interior with mahogany or teak finish. But also light oak is possible or full teak wood, whatever your preference would be.

The classic lines and looks are integrated in a modern sailing yacht. The designs are made with the latest technology giving the yachts very good and easy to handle sailing characteristics. The modern keels in fin shape can be even upgraded for more performance to a bulb shaped deep draft keel making them fast and easily manouvrable. The modern technology can also be found in the electric package for the winches by which adjusting the sails becomes as easy as pushing a button. The sails from North Sails also hold the latest technology with the 3Di design, making the sails very shape stable to increase the sailing performance. To complete a race set-up, a carbon mast and boom can be added to get the most out of the speed. Standard, our modern classic yachts are delivered with Volvo Penta engines, but off course electric propulsion is available for all models.If you share our passion for modern classic sailing, we would be honoured to help fulfil your aspirations. Together we build the most beautiful Spirit of Tradition boats ever seen.

The Mystical Runa

August 12, 2017

jacquelinetrudeau Sailboats , Sculptie Sails , Second Life , yawls 3 Comments

TrudeauRuna1

We at Trudeau Yachts are always looking for the next inspiration. This one came from within Second Life itself. It turns out a close SL friend of Jacqueline Trudeau works in the fashion industry. Within that industry he is a designer of women’s handbags and other leather goods. Within that job description he reports to those at the top of the fashion houses where he works.  For a time the very top of this particular fashion house was Yves Carcelle, a well respected executive and by all accounts well loved within the organization he headed.  But business and fashion was not the only thing Monsieur Carcelle lived for.  His passion was sailing, and in particular the sailboats of Danish designer Gerhard Rønne (1879-1955).  Rønne was a building architect, but also a passionate yachtsman who designed and oversaw the building of 10 yachts (6 for himself) beginning in 1910, all christened Runa (from I to X).

Runa IV

“It’s a name I found within myself. It indicates ‘rune’ – a little mystical. I am also aware that it has a nice sound to it”. — Gerhard Rønne ¹

Over the decades the Runa yachts were well tended to, sailed by humble everyday sailors to those of more noble standing, including an ex-commodore of the Royal Yacht Squadron, the son of a prestigious French pastry chef, a top Portuguese financier. ²

Fast forward a century later to 2009.  Carcelle, with his keen eye for classic beauty, acquired two of the five extant Runa yachts, the yawl Runa IV (1918) and cutter Runa VI (1927).  He commissioned beautiful stem to stern restorations of both and were relaunched in 2011 and 2013 respectively.

RunaIVRestore

Monsieur Carcelle actively participated both restored Runas in classic yachting regattas, but sadly about this time he was diagnosed with a particularly aggressive form of cancer which took his life in 2014.  One of his last acts was the commissioning of the book La Saga des Runa ,  a history of the Runas and an ode to all things Gerhard Rønne .

yves-carcelle-runa

This brings us back to Jacqueline’s SL friend.  As mentioned, he was one of Carcelle’s lieutenants, a sailing enthusiast himself and a personal eyewitness to Carcelle’s fleet of Runa yachts. “Jacqueline, il faut construire Runa!”  One quick google of the boats and it was absolutely agreed. But which one? Since we hadn’t done a multi-masted mesh yacht yet, it had to be the topsail yawl Runa IV.

RunaIV

The Trudeau Runa IV

Working from the Runa plans, it didn’t take long to get the basics in place.

trudeau classic sailing yachts

But that’s when the fun began. In keeping with the authenticity of the Runa, not only the sailplan but things like the rope lashings that make fast sails to spars, multi-part sheets for all sails, blocks and tackles for the gaff halyards, etc. would have to be modeled, and scripted to move in concert with every angle of sail trim. (if some of you are wondering why this boat has been under construction for longer than it would take to build the RL version, that is a good part of the reason why!)

trudeau classic sailing yachts

(and a big thanks to our beta-testers who revealed that what we originally thought was scripted to move in concert with every angle of sail trim wasn’t quite so!)

We added a Danish-finish inspired cabin interior, also based on the RL Runa:

trudeau classic sailing yachts

One slight change, in addition to the aft quarter single berths we added a forward double vee-berth in place of the head in the RL Runa. Because everyone in SL knows, avatars need sleep more than those other bodily functions :-) There are a total of 34   53 (v1.1) sit, sleep, above deck lounging and cuddle animations in the cabin. Headroom is at a premium, so you may have to belay that beehive hair-do before going belowdecks ;-) (Seeing water in the cabin? This is the explanation)

Underway, there are seating positions for skipper and 2 crewpersons  – 1 heel-offsetting hike position per side for the skipper, 3 per side for each crewperson.

Other features of the Trudeau Runa IV include

  • Our should-have-been patented in-world luffing Tru-Sails.
  • 1 reefing setting (douses the jib and main topsail).
  • Wing and wing foresails for additional oomph when running before the wind.
  • Half a dozen built-in traditional color schemes.
  • Auto-rezzing boatyard jack stands (28LI).

Customization!
