Historical:

Alexander Smith Cochran was born on February 28, 1874, to William Francis Cochran and Eva Smith. His grandfather was Alexander Smith, founder of the Alexander Smith Carpet Company.

Cochran inherited his wealth from his parents and his maternal uncle Warren B. Smith who left Cochran the bulk of an estate estimated to be worth $40 million in 1902. Cochran was the inheritor and principal owner of Alexander Smith & Sons Carpet mills of Yonkers, which by 1929 was the largest carpet manufacturer in the world.

Cochran was a member of the New York Yacht Club. Initially not an enthusiastic yachtsman, he owned and raced the sloop Avenger in 1909 and won the Astor Cup. Cochran decided to build a schooner that could make the Atlantic crossing and compete well in Europe, and ordered the Westward built between 1909 and 1910 by Nathanael Herreshoff of the Herreschoff Manufacturing Company of Rhode Island. The Westward was a 96-foot-waterline steel schooner and was the largest sailboat the Herreshoff Company had made at the time. Cochran raced the yacht off England and Europe in 1910 with Charlie Barr as the skipper.

The season was a stunning success. Westward won every race in German waters and eight of nine in England. Cochran sold Westward to a German syndicate in 1911, having become interested in larger yachts. He was already having a large three-masted schooner Sett Call designed for him by William Gardner. Cochran decided to become an America’s Cup contender and asked Gardner to also work on an America’s Cup prospect for him. Vanitie was the result. Both Vanitie and Sett Call were built by the George Lawley and Sons Corporation of Boston.

In 1912 she sailed across the Atlantic to join the German fleet of steel schooners. Once there she continued to earn win first place finishes, but her time there was cut short by the Outbreak of World War I in 1914.

In 1919, after the war and pandemic, Westward was purchased as a war-prize by the flamboyant London financier Clarence Hatry, who restored her original name. Hatry had begun his rise to success by transporting Eastern European emigrants to the United States and Canada. He subsequently enriched his vast fortune with investments in photographic supplies, vending machines, and loan offices.

Unfortunately he had been only able to race Westward for one season, the Summer of 1919. In the economic downturn that followed the war, his empire had become increasingly shaky, and he had be forced to turn his attention away from Westward, as he found himself in dire circumstances. By the time he sold her in 1924, she had spent four years in retirement, mostly in a mud berth near Southampton.

In 1924 Westward’s new owner, London businessman Warwick Brookes, a keen yachtsman, known for racing Six- metres. He also owned and raced a famous Fife schooner, and other yachtsman were hopeful that he would be racing Westward. Instead she moved on to her fifth owner the same year.

Under TB Davis Stewardship

Davis was to go on to make his fortune in stevedoring in South Africa but his career was nearly cut short on his first voyage when the ship ran aground in heavy weather off the coast of Norfolk and he was carried away from the vessel when a rope snapped casting him adrift in a dinghy with the ship’s papers and valuables. He drifted for some time before being picked up by a Norwegian vessel, by which time the Satellite had refloated and returned to Southampton, to report him missing, presumed drowned. It has been recorded by historians, most notably George Balleine, in his Biographical Dictionary of Jersey, that he made it back to Jersey just in time to catch the end of his memorial service in St Luke’s church, much to the astonishment of the congregation, and his mother, who reportedly fainted. (somewhat fanciful version of events)

His passion was yacht racing, and in 1924 he bought the schooner Westward, wanting a vessel at least the equal of the Royal Yacht of his friend King George V. He raced Westward in European waters for ten years and developed a fierce and friendly rivalry with the King.

Following the death of the King in 1936 Davis more or less gave up racing. He had two Ailsa Craig 48-60 hp six-cylinder diesel engines fitted in, as well as other accoutrements designed to enhance comfort. Davis continued to cruise, including a trip to Norway and Sweden, until Westward was laid up in Dartmouth for the duration of the Second World War. Davis had moved back to South Africa, and died in Durban in 1942 at the age of 75. His will specified that if a new owner with sufficient means to maintain Westward could not be found, she should be sunk. Sadly no member of his family felt capable of looking after Westward, and after she had also been offered unsuccessfully to three different sail-trading establishments, the final clause of Davis’s will came into play. On July 15, 1947, stripped of all hardware, equipment and interior fittings she was towed out to the Hurd Deep, off Jersey, the Channel Islands. At 12:45 pm., the dynamite was ignited and Westward sank some 60 miles from her old friend Britannia.

Initially intended as a recreational fishing yacht, Westward was converted into a racing yacht after the initial buyer fell through, and George Gibson became its new owner.

Gibson entered Westward in the inaugural Maria Island race in 1947, and then in the 1947 and 1948 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Races – and won all three.

Westward is the only Tasmanian-built vessel to win the Sydney to Hobart twice, and also the only vessel with a fishing well to ever win the race!

Following its racing career, Westward was used as a cruising vessel in the Pacific until returning to Tasmanian waters as a donation to the Maritime Museum in 2010.

Now Westward can be viewed in Constitution Dock, where it has been restored and maintained by Maritime Museum volunteers as a floating exhibit and a key part of Tasmania’s sailing history.

The presentation of Westward in Constitution Dock is generously supported by Nanni Diesel and TasPorts.

Westward

Historical Summary:

M.V. Westward is a classic wooden motor vessel constructed in 1924 in Dockton, Washington. She is 86 feet long, and her beam measures 18 feet 8 inches across. Her draft is 9 feet 5 inches and displacement is 137.5 tons. She is powered by her original four cylinder Atlas Imperial diesel engine which provides 110 h.p. (horsepower) at 325 r.p.m. (revolutions per minute) and gives her a cruising speed of eight knots at 290 r.p.m.. Westward has a fuel capacity of 2,200 gallons for a cruising range of 2,500 nautical miles, and she carries 1,000 gallons of fresh water with a reverse osmosis water maker.

She has a cannery tender type hull and the interior cabin spaces of a yacht, with accommodations for up to 11 passengers and six crew. Her design is significant as a transitional or hybrid form between a traditional work boat and a lighter more elegant leisure boat. Westward is a fully operational motor vessel which retains a high degree of integrity and has been carefully maintained and periodically restored over her 83-year career.

Wartime Use:

Westward served, conscripted by the U.S. of A. Public Roads Administration on January 3rd, 1943 and returned June 3rd, 1947----apparently immediately subsequent to her sale (or sale of her “return” rights) by her pre-war owners to Doc Freeman & partners----Messers. Gibson & Masserly. The foregoing per Westward’s U.S.C.G. Abstract of Title.   Westward’s war-time service was carried out, at least in part, in San Francisco Bay where she was reliably (albeit anecdotally) reported in billet-duty in Petaluma, CA.  Upon her release from war-time service, she was drydocked in Sausalito to prepare for her return voyage to Seattle---where she joined Doc Freeman’s post-war navy for six months. Westward’s northbound delivery-crew included Dave Updike.   This is the extent of our knowledge of Westward’s war-time Service; we would welcome any further information to compliment the history we’ve complied for Westward’s recent listing (April 2007) in the National Register of Historic Places.

World’s coolest yachts: Westward

Yachting World

  • April 8, 2022

We ask top sailors and marine industry gurus to choose the coolest and most innovative yachts of our times. Well respected boat designer, Bill Tripp, picks the Herreshoff designed Westward as his selection

westward yacht

Westward was designed by the great Nathanael Herreshoff and launched in 1910 and at 96ft LWL (135ft LOA) the steel schooner was the largest yacht Herreshoff had built so far.

Skippered by America’s Cup winner Charlie Barr , she showed unbeatable upwind pace thanks to her huge sail area.

“The sails are extremely good and balanced with what was the screaming edge of tech at the time,” explains Bill Tripp.

“ Westward was a schooner using the limits of materials at the time – the headsails put so much compression on the foremast, which is why they were schooners. The main mast didn’t have the headsail compression so the aft mast could reach for the sky.

“When they did the replica Eleonora they cut the bowsprit and mainsail down because they were scared by the thought of controlling all that sail as well as Charlie Barr could…”

Stats rating Westward

Top speed: 19 knots LOA: 135ft/41.1m Launched: 1910 Berths: 30 Price: $118,000 Adrenalin factor: 90%

Bill Tripp has yacht design in his blood – his father William H Tripp created many well known US designs. Bill Tripp’s designs include the 86m Aquijo , the largest sailing ketch in the world, the 62ft custom daysailer/racer Chessie Racing , Wally Yachts Esense and Saudade and design collaborations for Y-Yachts, Baltic Yachts and Solaris.

Westward (yacht)

Westward was an American racing yacht designed and launched by Nathanael Herreshoff on March 31, 1910. She was the largest yacht built under the International Rule of 1908. [1] [2]

Westward 1910 Westward 1910.jpg

She was owned by Alexander Cochran a successful businessman and member of the New York Yacht Club . Her skipper was Charlie Barr , notorious for his wins in the America's Cup Races. In her first season in German waters, she smashed Kaiser Wilhelm 's fleet displaying a faster speed to windward than any other schooner . [3] This was due to her ability to carry more canvas than her competitors although in high winds this extra load made her nearly unmanageable.

Following her successes in Germany , the Westward sailed to England and competed in races there. Due to continuously changing handicap rules, Cochran chose to race the Westward in the A Class of the International rules for which she had been designed. Despite some controversy, Westward was eventually allowed to compete as Barr and Cochran had demanded. She made a decent showing of herself in her first race in British waters, defeating America's Cup challenger Shamrock with Thomas Lipton aboard by 15 minutes. [4]

Her racing career was put on hold seemingly indefinitely when Captain Barr died suddenly of a heart attack on January 24, 1911. [5] Cochran was heartbroken at the loss of his friend and sold the Westward for £100,000 to Albert Ballin who was the director of Hamburg-America Line . The new owners changed the Westward ' s sail plan, painted her black and renamed her Hamburg II . [6] After a brief run in the 1913 Kiel Regatta in which she placed third, Hamburg II was laid up. World War I delayed her return to service and she passed through a string of owners before falling into the hands of Mr. Clarence Henry, a well known London financier who also restored her original name. [7]

In the 1920 Deal Regatta , Westward would meet a rival yacht she would become very familiar with, none other than the King's yacht Britannia . For the next 15 years the two yachts would grace British races with their presence, often leaving the rest of the fleet behind. When King George V died, Britannia followed him to the grave and the Westward retired from racing. She continued to serve her owner T.B. Davis until his death in 1947 when accordance with his will, she was scuttled and sunk off Jersey in the Channel Islands . [8]

Enjoy a dip in the Baranof Hot Springs, explore an enchanted canyon, paddle through tidal rapids, experience John Muir’s “sea flooded Yosemite Valley,” and learn bear etiquette, tracking and more. All trips will feature several walks and chances to kayak in remote and protected bays. These amazing nature and wildlife opportunities qualify this itinerary for our handpicked selection of  Alaska family cruises .

The Westward also offers several alternative routes, including an 8-day itinerary between Petersburg and Sitka. The Westward ultimately follows a unique route each trip, allowing the weather and wildlife to dictate her itinerary, which makes her luxury Alaska cruises all the more special.

Southeast Alaska's Western Passages Itinerary

The 8-day Alaska’s Western Passages cruise begins in Sitka, Alaska, travels eastbound while exploring the islands and ends in Juneau, Alaska.

Route map of main & reverse Alaska's Western Passages small ship cruise, operating from Sitka to Juneau, with visits to Stephens Passage; Warm Springs Bay; Freshwater Bay; Baird, Le Conte and Dawes Glaciers; Hidden Falls Hatchery and Tenakee Springs.

Westward will be moored in Sitka Harbor, where you will meet the ship at noon. Sitka was first settled by Tlingit ancestors about 10,000 years ago, and later by Russian fur traders in 1799. There are several historic sites of significance here. Take the time to visit a few of them during a walk through the town on your own if time allows. Board Westward in time for a late lunch and to cast off for the 9-mile run to Krestof Sound, where Westward will anchor in time for a first kayak paddle before dinner.

lunch, dinner

Westward will travel through canyons and fjords, stopping at beautiful anchorages at Admiralty, Baranof and Kupreanof islands, observing bears, whales, eagles and more along the way. Enjoy opportunities to hike or kayak, accompanied by the onboard naturalist, and learn about the fauna and flora of the area. Each departure varies depending on the weather; some highlights may include:

Stephens Passage

As Westward sails through waters frequented by humpback whales and orca, be on the lookout for the whales’ tell-tale blows. Tonight’s anchorage is among the small bays and inlets that indent Admiralty Island, where there’s time to launch the kayaks and search for brown bears foraging along the shore.

Warm Springs Bay

While Westward is anchored for a few hours, hike the trail up to the lake that feeds the magnificent waterfall that drops into the head of the bay. On the way back from the lake, stop and soak in the natural hot pools overlooking the head of the falls. After taking your fill of the restorative waters, return to Westward and resume the journey.

Freshwater Bay

Westward will be anchoring in a small cove in front of an estuary system that supports a large population of brown bears. During fish runs, bears congregate near the entrance of a fish ladder that allows returning salmon access to their spawning streams, bypassing the dam built decades ago to support logging operations. We will explore the bay by kayak and then anchor our skiff in the stream at the foot of the falls where we may have an opportunity to watch and photograph brown bears sharing (not something bears often do) the bountiful returning salmon. From this stable base we can sit quietly, watch and photograph the gorging bears.

Baird, Le Conte & Dawes Glaciers

Each departure includes a visit to one or two glaciers. Each adventure is different, with possibilities to explore the newly foliated outwash plain exposed by Baird Glacier’s retreating ice, and/or cruise as close as a quarter mile of Le Conte’s or Dawes’ calving glacier face.

Hidden Falls Hatchery

Go ashore and tour the Hidden Falls Hatchery facility. When the salmon begin returning in late July, brown bears also visit the stream near the hatchery to re-stock their fat reserves for the coming winter. Moving on, the ship will reach Baranof Hot Springs before lunch, with plenty of time to hike to Baranof Lake (approximately 1 mile round trip). A post-hike soak in the hot spring pools will help soothe sore feet. By mid-afternoon, Westward will depart Warm Springs Bay to once again cross Chatham Strait, this time rounding Admiralty Island’s southern tip and entering Stephens Passage. Anchorage tonight is in one of several deep bays that serrate Admiralty’s southeast shoreline, with time to launch the kayaks and poke along the edges of the cove.

Tenakee Springs

This is a unique community of homesteaders and vacation home owners drawn to this remote area by its mineral hot springs. Explore this charming village individually or in small groups and then re-gather at the general store or bakery, to return to Westward, hoist anchor and get underway for the evening’s destination; a sheltered bay near the outflow of a mountain lake. Once securely anchored, go ashore and walk the 3-mile round trip trail to the lake.

breakfast, lunch, dinner

Sailing in time to reach Juneau 10:00am, complete the voyage along the length of Stephens Passage and enter Gastineau Channel and the final eight miles to Juneau. The Westward arrives in time for her guests to catch the early afternoon southbound flights.

HEAR IT FROM TRAVELERS WHO HAVE EXPLORED WITH US

Alaska has been in our minds for years... My 60th birthday seemed a great reason to make it happen! The friendliness and responsiveness of AdventureSmith staff when I first sent in an inquiry really sealed the deal. I cannot say enough about Tracie's food on the boat. It is truly some of the best food I have eaten anywhere! She also baked me an incredible birthday cake!

I truly enjoyed the whole trip but our time on the Westward was the one I'll remember most. It combined so many things I love: hiking, nature, kayaking, wildlife, wonderful people, and amazing food! And I learned so much. I loved the small size of the group. We went places and did things that no larger boat/group could do. Very special! The two very long days of travel to get to Kantishna was probably my least favorite. The bus ride into the park was beautiful and our guide was fabulous. We were just tired from traveling so long on the plane the day before and getting up early to catch the bus to the park entrance. Again, I don't think we could've really done it differently, coming from Tampa. Once we got to Kantishna, all was well. The six others on board the Westward were very congenial and we made a great group! Thank you for suggesting this itinerary. We got to see exactly what we had hoped for when we first started contemplating a trip to Alaska. I will remember it forever! Alaska has been in our minds for years but we had never made it there. My 60th birthday seemed a great reason to make it happen! The friendliness and responsiveness of AdventureSmith staff when I first sent in an inquiry really sealed the deal.

Accommodations Review

The Hilton in Anchorage was okay - seems to need a facelift soon but we weren't there long. The cabin at Kantishna was vey roomy and the beds were really comfortable. We had everything we needed. The Sheraton in Juneau was very comfortable and the staff very friendly. The Westward cabins are so efficient! I was amazed at how much room we had to put our clothes and other items. It was perfect.

Meals Review

I cannot say enough about Tracie's food on the boat. It is truly some of the best food I have eaten anywhere! She also baked me an incredible birthday cake! The food at Kantishna was fine. I know they are very remote, but I was dying for some local fish! The service was good and I enjoyed sitting with other guests. We met some really interesting people. 

Crew & Guides Review

Mary was our favorite at Kantishna. She was so enthusiastic and led us on a wonderful 7 mile hike to Skyline Ridge (I think). She knew so much about the plants and all of the wildlife. All four of the folks aboard the Westward were exceptional. Don't know how I can say enough. Bill, Tracie, Kristin, and Liam. All were people I am very happy to have met.

Transportation Review

I really appreciated the detailed itinerary which I carried with me. Knowing exactly which dome train to check in to, for instance, was wonderful and eased any anxiety I may have had about being in the right place. Same with the buses we were on. I think our flights worked out well, although I am now not a big fan of the Seattle airport - it was a zoo! Glad we arrived early for our flight home. I appreciated the cabs being included as well. 

AdventureSmith Explorations Review

I felt that the support from AdventureSmith while planning the trip and before leaving was outstanding. I had all of the information that I needed. I felt that everyone involved was so friendly and quick to respond to any questions I had. We got wonderful, complete info about packing, etc., and felt very well-prepared.

Kayaking between ice floats/ Swimming in a glacier lake followed by dipping into hot pools situated above a waterfall. Gourmet food and caring crew. Thank you Cacey, Liam and Ben for a wonder experience.

A special treasure

This boat is nearly 100 years old and is in pristine condition. It goes where the big cruise ships cannot. The crew has the “hospitality gene,” works incredibly hard yet always makes guests feel welcome, valued, and capable. The food is spectacularly good. There is even a rooftop garden where salad greens and fresh herbs are harvested daily. Oh yes, the trip itself — bald eagles, whales, bears, glaciers, icebergs, and more — was wonderful.

We’re here to help, 24/7.
