Looks very like the British registered schooner "Shenandoah", (there are photos in the gallery in the private yachts category), presently in Hobart, Tasmania on a visit. She doesn't have a yard on the for'd mast currently and there is some variation in the deck structures but this might be an old photograph of her?

Well spotted Mike
Yes there are a lot of similarities, but hard to compare. From this angle she looks shorter and squatter and the boom on her mizzen looks a tad shorter too, but as you say, it is an old pic and could therefore have been taken before her last major refit. Her name then being SHENANDOAH OF SARK the rigging (other than the yard on her foremast) looks identical as does the rather ornate arched structure supporting her boom just aft of the steering position.
Cheers

EMMESSTEE and Jeff.J...Tks for replies/info :eek:) :eek:) ....looked up the gallery/search and certainly looks like this is it
The sailing yacht SHENANDOAH is a 55 metre 181 (foot) large steel ship which was made at Townsend & Downey Shipbuilding and her design plans were devised by Theodore E Ferris. A important triple masted schooner SHENANDOAH is a particularily well designed United States made yacht which was launched to celebration in 1902. Sleeping 10 passengers and 14 crew, sailing yacht SHENANDOAH used to be Shenandoah; Lasca Ii; Shenandoah; Atlantide; Shenandoah Of Sark. The yacht is a classic triple masted schooner. This balanced boat has been envisaged with a naval architect called Theodore E. Ferris. Terence Disdale Design undertook her interior design brief.
SHENANDOAH is a three Masted Gaff Schooner which was originally built in 1902 and fully restored in New Zealand at Mc Mullen & Wing Shipyard in 1995/6.

Allan -
Do you have a date, or even a year, for your photograph - we might be able to determine her name at the time and at what stage in her life she was?

If you go to the Hobart Wrest Point Hotel Casino webcam at:
http://wphc-webcam.federalit.net/
and pan to the right on the Tasman Bridge webcam, you will see "Shenandoah" lying at anchor in the river off the Casino. She moved there from her berth in the port at midday today.

Sorry Mike(Thumb) ...you are making me feel guilty for being so disorganised by not having a place or date on my photographs sometimes.....I should have had one of these camera`s that did the date automatically :eek:)[=P]
Tks again for all yer reply/info and your link to the webcam ...which I never knew existed :eek:) :eek:)(Thumb)
Had another close look at the photo to try and `jog` the memory box [=P] and still none the wiser !! Rgds Allan :eek:)(Thumb)
What a coincidence that I posted this not knowing it`s name and Mike entered this nearly 3 wks prior on his gallery (EEK) (EEK) ......The 107 year old, 54-metre gaff rigged schooner ''Shenandoah'' entering Sullivans Cove, Hobart on a very grey and damp day, 12.30hrs 27 November 2009. (EEK) (EEK)
That`s what makes SN such a good site :eek:)(Thumb)
