Experience a majestic sail aboard JAKAB

An elegant 55-foot, 43-passenger traditional sailing yacht offering Private Sailing Events and Public Sails from St. Clair Harbor Public Day and Sunset Sails Lunch and Dinner Package Sails Private Events.

“Jakab” is an exceptional yacht. One of her sisterships, “Toujours Ete’“, was owned by musical group “The Beach Boys” – and includes a Jacuzzi tub, piano and 16-track recording studio. Another sistership, “Eros”, circumnavigated the globe twice. Another sistership was owned by Teddy Kennedy. Other sisterships are sailing the seven oceans. Jakab is a vintage yacht whose timeless design is based upon the magnificent J-Boat racing sailboats of the late-1920’s. Jakab’s mast initially belonged to Prime Minister Edward Heath of Great Britain. When Heath retired from racing he sold the mast to the former owner of Jakab.

The Times Herald – Sail St. Clair like a real sailor

Come sail with us from mid-May through early-October. We thank St. Clair and nearby communities for strong support.

Jakab docks on the St. Clair Harbor North Seawall – just steps from St. Clair’s restaurants, downtown boutiques, board walk and shoreline. We hoist the sails moments after leaving St. Clair Harbor, turn off the engine, and allow wind and sea to sculpt our course on the St. Clair River.

Sail Aboard Traditional Sailing Yacht Jakab

Jakab’s design is influenced by late-1920’s J-Class  (America’s Cup) racing sailboats — majestic, seaworthy vessels. Only 3 sisterships were built — one was owned by Teddy Kennedy, a similar hull was owned by the Beach Boys, and another circumnavigated the globe twice. Jakab’s mast was formerly owned by former Prime Minister of Great Britain, Sir Edward Heath (a racing sailor).

Jakab offers a unique true sailing experience from St. Clair (on the St. Clair River). Enjoy a public sail or rent the entire sailboat for a private event.

We typically set sail after leaving the harbor and sail where wind and seas take us. JAKAB is available any time of day for private charters. See our Schedule for public sails.
