The Classic Trumpy Motor Yacht Windrush
American Classic Yachting believes in bringing the best in luxurious, private yacht charters to unique and exciting coastal venues. Come aboard the classic Trumpy motor yacht “Windrush” for one of the most memorable cruising experiences of a lifetime.
“Windrush” and the Trumpy Legacy
Since 2005, “Windrush” has undergone extensive restoration and systems updating, all in keeping with the original Trumpy style and her “mid-sixties” era. Her luxurious guest accommodations, comfortable cruising, timeless beauty and five-star service are available for private charter guests year-round in some of the best cruising venues in America.
“Windrush” was designed and built by John Trumpy & Sons in Annapolis. She was built in 1966 for John M.L. Rutherfurd of Sands Point, NY, and Palm Beach, FL. Mr. Rutherfurd and his wife were famous powerboat racers, and “Windrush”(originally named “Sea Dream VII”) was his 3rd Trumpy yacht. She joined more than 200 custom Trumpy yachts built for the 20th Century's "Rich & Famous", like James Deering (International Harvester), Francis DuPont, Roger Firestone, and John Kimberly (Kimberly-Clark). The most famous Trumpy yacht is the “Sequoia”, the Presidential Yacht from 1932 until 1977, serving nine Chief Executives. Trumpy Yachts epitomize the "Golden Era of Yachting", and they hold a revered place in American Maritime history.
