“Zapata II”

Owned for the past 34 years by Marion and Jim Jordan, who spend summers sailing this beautiful ketch throughout the Channel Islands. Carefully maintained to preserve the workmanship and beauty of a classic wooden yacht, Zapata II has been the winner of Opening Day awards numerous times.


In her day, Humble was considered the most beautiful yacht on the Thames River.

She hosted many distinguished guests, including English and European Royalty. In fact, she was so popular that the Prince of Wales commandeered her for a grand European tour in the early 1900s. Celebrating over 100 years of history, Humble is an English “Victorian Gentleman’s Launch”. Built in Kensington England, circa 1902, Humble is believed to be the largest surviving electric boat of her era.
