Tenacious
Tenacious is one of the only two vessels in the world which have been specifically designed and built to enable people of all physical abilities to sail side by side on equal terms. Crew can take the helm, set sails and keep watch, all regardless of their physical ability and previous sailing knowledge. In 2000 Tenacious was launched as the largest wooden tall ship to be built in the UK for over 100 years. Together with a similar vessel, Lord Nelson, they form the Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST).
During the voyages you will discover amazing places, make great friends and share in the challenge of sailing a Tall Ship on the open sea. These are just a few of the reasons why many people find a voyage on Tenacious to be a truly life changing adventure.

Accommodation

Tenacious was built in order to enable people of all physical and sensory abilities to take an equally active role in sailing the ship. Some of the features on board that enable this to happen are: signs in Braille, lifts between decks, wide aisles, vibrator pads fitted to the bunks to alert the occupant in the event of an emergency, power assisted and `joystick` steering, accessible toilets and a speaking compass. Eight of the cabins accommodate wheelchair users and are more spacious with the nearby bathrooms being equipped with features like seats in the shower and a height adjustable sink.

History


After the success of Lord Nelson, the JST began to explore the possibility of building a second similarly designed ship. Designed by Tony Castro, Tenacious is the largest wooden tall ship of her kind in the world. The innovative wood epoxy laminate build started in 1996 with a team made up of skilled designers, engineers, shipwrights and fitters. These were supplemented by a volunteer force of over 1500 able bodied and disabled people who came on working `Shorewatch` holidays from all over the UK and abroad.

The JST`s Patron, HRH The Duke of York, laid the keel in June 1996. The hull was built upside down and in November 1998, the 280-ton hull was rotated upright prior to fit-out.

Tenacious was launched in February 2000, and was named on 6th April by the Honourable Jacquetta Cator, the wife of the late Francis Cator, then President of the JST, in the presence of the Patron. She set sail on her maiden voyage to Jersey from Southampton on 1st September 2000. Since her maiden voyage, Tenacious has taken nearly 7,000 people to sea, delivering freedom, fun and adventure for everyone!
