Vanderbilt's Legacy

VIM

A timeless Masterpiece: Classic Sailing Yacht VIM
Vim was launched in 1939, designed by the renowned Olin J. Stephens of Sparkman & Stephens, and constructed by Henry B. Nevins, Inc. Commissioned by Harold S. Vanderbilt, a key figure in competitive sailing, Vim was built to dominate the 12 Metre class racing, especially the America’s Cup and other prestigious regattas. 

 

A Competitor in the 1958 America’s Cup
During the 1939 racing season, Vim showcased her exceptional speed and agility, narrowly losing to Jenetta by only two seconds in a race over the distance of 27nm, or 50km. Vanderbilt’s extraordinary skills and the yacht’s innovative design played significant roles in her dominance on the racecourse. In 1958, Vim further cemented her place in yachting history by participating in the America’s Cup trials. Though she did not win, her performance was highly respected and added to the competitive spirit of the event..

 

From America’s Cup to Mediterranean Regattas

After her participation in the 1958 America’s Cup trials, Vim continued to be actively involved in various regattas and races. She sailed extensively in both the United States and Europe, participating in numerous prestigious events. Over the years, Vim underwent several restorations to maintain her racing condition and preserve her historical integrity. She remained a competitive and admired vessel within the 12-metre class. In recent years, Vim has been sailing in the Mediterranean, including participating in the Voiles de Saint-Tropez, showcasing her enduring legacy and performance.

 

Participants now have the opportunity to book their spots aboard Vim for classic regattas in the Mediterranean with Noblesse Yachts®.

Sailing Heritage

Vim measures 21.18 meters in length with a beam of 3.66 meters. She was constructed under the International Third Rule for the 12-metre class, featuring innovative design elements that contributed to her exceptional performance. One of her pioneering features is the grinder/winch system, which enables rapid tacking and superior upwind performance.
Vim’s displacement is 27.44 tons, and she boasts a sail area of 179 square meters. Built with wood and double planking, Vim represents the advanced naval architecture of her time, ensuring her competitiveness and enduring legacy in yacht racing.

Our Curated Studios and Apartments Near Saint-Tropez's Harbour

The limited number of hotels near Saint-Tropez’s harbour is due to several factors: strict historic preservation regulations, space constraints in the compact harbour area, high real estate values, environmental regulations protecting the coastline, and inadequate infrastructure to support large hotel developments.


Therefore, we opt for select studios and apartments, with some situated right near the harbour, offering several benefits.

    • Proximity to the Event: Being near the port means you are at the heart of the regatta activities. You can easily walk to the port; this proximity allows you to immerse yourself fully in the event without the hassle of transportation.
    • Flexibility and Freedom: An apartment offers more flexibility than a hotel. You can set your own schedule and have a more personalized space. This is especially beneficial for longer stays or for those with specific dietary or living preferences.
    • Cost-Effectiveness: Renting an apartment can be more cost-effective, especially for groups or families. Instead of booking multiple hotel rooms, an apartment can accommodate more people, often at a lower total cost.
    • Authentic Experience: Staying in an apartment allows you to experience Saint-Tropez like a local. You can shop at local markets, enjoy neighbourhood restaurants, and engage with residents, offering a more authentic and enriching experience.
    • Quiet and Privacy: While the regatta is an exciting event, an apartment provides a private retreat away from the crowds, where you can relax and recharge in peace.
    • Scenic Views: Many apartments near the port offer scenic views of the sea and the regattas, providing a spectacular backdrop for your stay. This enhances the overall experience of the event.
