Nat Herreshoff design
New York yacht club 40 Hull #7--1915

With endless history and famous old owners as J.P. Morgan and moviestar Warren Beatty you can easely imagine the celebs strolling over her deck and making you feel rich and famous as well.

The 78-foot Edwardian schooner was once the darling of Newport's sailing society, playing host to Kennedys, Morgans and other American royalty.
All mahogany and teak, with gleaming brass and crystal accents, Vixen II is appointed with nautical textiles, fine stemware, silver service and Royal Doulton china.
Yet she's anything but frilly, exuding a masculine energy worthy of her treelike 72-foot mainmast.
Vixen II is actually ''Jessica,'' Hull #7 of a 1915 limited edition of New York 40 Herreschoffs.
Later acquired by renowned surgeon George Schimert of Newport and St. Thomas, she spent a quarter of a century gracing magazine covers and racing with champions.
But Dr. Schimert's children drifted away, and Vixen was docked; George II eventually returned to the Caribbean and proved Vixen's mettle against a new generation of challengers, taking trophies in Antigua's Classic Yacht Regatta, winning it in 2002 and also at Tortola's Sweethearts of the Caribbean races.
