Robust and orignial
Duet is a wonderful example of an Edwardian classic yacht. She is 21.95 meters long and has a bowsprit of 3.38 meters. Duet is built of wood with a beautiful teak deck, while most of the rigging is still original. A remarkable detail is the deck house, which originally stood on Prince Philip’s yacht, the ‘Bloodhound’. But since the sixties it is part of the DUET.
DUET was launched in 1912 as ‘Gaviotta’ at a yard in Hampshire, UK. In the thirties she was bought by Augustine Courtauld, a famous explorer who renamed her in ‘Duet’. The ship is still under management by the Courtauld family, now the third generation. Sail training is the main goal to keep the ship in service. In 2012 she celebrated her 100th anniversary.
