Eagle Rock II was designed by Thornton Grenfell as custom ordered by a local Vancouver family, active and passionate RVYC members. By the early 1970s, Grenfell had already long been established in British Columbia as a builder of well-executed cruising yachts with a distinctive design, known for beautiful styling, uncompromising construction, and impressive performance.Sadly, at the beginning of construction, Mr Grenfell passed away and his shipyard did not continue. The ribs and frames were disassembled, and moved to the McQueen Boat Works shipyard where the yacht was finished. Upon completion, she was christened Nova Spirit, and based in Vancouver, she cruised with these first owners until 1980.
She was then purchased by another local yachtsman, and was renamed Nova Springs. They owned Nova Springs until 1985 when she was sold to a Spokane family, who re-christened her Eagle Rock II. In 1989 she was purchased by these current owners and brought back to BC.These current owners have thoroughly enjoyed Eagle Rock II as a family cruising yacht and entertaining platform for 30 years. Their captain is dedicated, highly experienced, and boasts a wealth of knowledge and pride that is evident throughout the vessel. He has been Eagle Rock II's full-time operator and care giver for the past 22+ years.
The owners have now purchased a new vessel, bringing Eagle Rock II to market.
