Beginning and end of the yacht America

Published on December 4th, 2019 by Editor -->

With the frequent sighting of the yacht America on San Diego Bay, well-handled and beautiful under sail, the history of the America’s Cup is never far from view. In this report by Dr. Hamish Ross , he provides the detailed version.

On the 15 November 1850, George Schuyler on behalf of a syndicate of five, including himself and Commodore John Cox Stevens and William Brown, signed a contract to build a New York pilot schooner for the Great Exhibition, due to be opened by Queen Victoria in Hyde Park, London on Thursday 1 May 1851. The contract was for $30,000.00, conditioned on her being the fastest yacht in the United States. Unfortunately, she was delivered a month late and failed to defeat Commodore Stevens’ Maria during her trials. Left with the prospect of selling a failed yacht and in deep financial trouble, Brown had little option but to accept a ‘take it or leave it’ price reduction of $10,000.00 by Schuyler.

During the building, her owner’s plans for England changed and the America would be diverted to the Royal Yacht Squadron (RYS) in Cowes after an invitation was received from RYS Commodore, the 2nd Earl of Wilton, inviting the owners to enjoy the hospitality of the Squadron during the yachting season.

The Earl had been born Thomas Grosvenor, the second son of the Marquess of Westminster (the title was later elevated to a dukedom in 1874 – the last non-royal dukedom to be created). Wilton served as Commodore of the Royal Yacht Squadron for thirty-two years between 1849 to 1881.

On 22 August 1851, America raced against 15 yachts in the Royal Yacht Squadron’s “all nations” race around the Isle of Wight. America won, finishing 8 minutes ahead of the closest rival. After 1851, the America went through a number of owners, including service as a Confederate blockade runner under the name of the Memphis, being scuttled in Jacksonville, later raised to serve in the US Navy, and was raced by the Navy in the 1870 America’s Cup fleet race match (winning fourth place).

She was sold into private ownership in 1873 to Benjamin Butler, a controversial Union Army Major-General and later a colorful politician and lawyer. Under Butler’s ownership, the America underwent two major refits in 1875 and again in 1885.

She was donated to the US Navy in 1921 and was towed to the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, as an on-water exhibit, where her condition gradually decayed. The onset of the Great Depression delayed the expenditure of an estimated $80,000.00 for a necessary refit.

Charles Francis Adams Jr., the America’s Cup winning skipper of Resolute in 1920, great-great grandson of the second US President John Adams, great grandson of the sixth President, John Quincy Adams, serving as the Secretary of the Navy, felt unable to approve the expenditure of such money in 1930 during the onset of the Depression.

She was classified as a Navy relic in 1941 (IX-41) and hauled out at the Annapolis Yacht Yard for work. Some preliminary was carried out on her from time to time, mainly stripping her back to sound timbers, but only around other more urgent work which took precedence.

The outbreak of the Second World War further delayed any thoughts of a determined restoration and her fate was sealed after a shed in which she was being housed in Annapolis collapsed during a severe snowstorm on the night of Palm Sunday, 29 March 1942.

When the War ended, the Navy was forced to cut back from its wartime budget and was busy decommissioning many of its ships. Nostalgia was in short supply in 1945 when it came to preserving famous ships. Her end was sealed on 20th November 1945 when the US Navy signed an order for her scrapping, when faced with a repair bill of $300,000.00.

The Navy received $990.90 for the scrapping of an icon.

One of the last photographs of the remains of the America before she was scrapped in 1945.

Many pieces of the America were souvenired and every now and then, pieces of the America come on the market, but rather like a ‘grandfather’s hammer’, it is rather hard to know if any piece offered dates from 1851 or was added later during one of its many refits. It is said, like relics of the ‘cross’, there are more pieces of wood claiming to be from the America than in a New England forest.

Three replicas of the America have been built. They were built in 1967 (Boothby, Maine), 1995 (Albany, New York), and in 2005 (Varna, Bulgaria) with varying degrees of authenticity some having an additional four feet of beam to increase accommodation and additional skylights. The first two are based in the US and the latter in Rostock, Germany sailing as the Skythia.

The America, the most famous yacht in the history of the sport of sailing, has bequeathed us a competition which represents the pinnacle of the sport in terms of technology, design, sailing skill, management, all these necessarily infused with smart strategic and tactical planning and execution, in which only the very best will win.

UPDATE 1 (Dec. 5, 2019) : Troy Sears, who owns and sails the replica in San Diego, CA, provides an update on the three boats:

The 1967 replica, commonly known as the “Rudy Schaefer” boat that you correctly state being built in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, was broken up several years ago due to rot. She spent most of her later years of her life in the Med, mostly in Barcelona and Genoa. She was a full-sized replica.

The Bulgarian replica, Skythia, is a fractional replica being about 60 tons as compared to ours which is 113 tons. I would say her design was inspired by the America but not so much a replica.

There are no original drawing available so nobody can be certain of the actual dimensions, but ours is thought to be as accurate as possible in terms of size. Also, I am happy to say that we are totally rot free and as long as I take good care of her, she will outlive me.

UPDATE 2 (Dec. 12, 2019): Marcello Grimaudo, who is Captain of the 1967 replica (below), informed us  the yacht is still sailing and in good shape but is now on drydock in Italy for a major restoration.

Next Level Sailing Timeline

yacht america replica

The start of an exceptional company that takes sailing to the next level each and every trip.

Stars & Stripes and Abracadabra

In April, Next Level Sailing acquired the first ever Coast Guard inspected carbon fiber vessels: Stars & Stripes and Abracadabra. The Abracadabra is particularly famous because of the beautiful artwork on the hull painted by marine artist, Wyland.

The Real World: San Diego

The fourteenth season of MTV’s hit reality show called The Real World was filmed in San Diego. The cast worked on the Stars & Stripes as crew members during the fall and winter of 2003. It was the first time Next Level Sailing had been part of a television show.

Yacht America

The gorgeous replica of the original 1851 racing yacht America was purchased. The replica was built in Albany, New York in 1995 by Scarano Boat designs. In 1996, yacht America carried the Olympic torch to the 1996 Olympic sailing venue in Savannah, GA. It was then sold to Historic Tours of America. It was purchased by Next Level Sailing in 2005. Captain Troy flew to Key West, FL and sailed the boat through the Panama Canal and all the way to its new home in San Diego, CA.

This was a very exciting year for Next Level Sailing as it was the first time a public whale watching trip was offered. In addition, we were the only company in the world to offer a Whale Watching Guarantee & No Sea Sickness Guarantee. At this time, San Diego was famous for migrating gray whales. Who knew that we would soon discover that there were whales all year around here in San Diego. Due to our fabulous whale watching trips, we started to see fin whales and blue whales in the spring as well as humpback whales throughout the summer and fall. We also saw other types of animals including: Orcas, Minke Whales, Bryde’s Whale, Risso’s Dolphins, Pacific White-Sided Dolphins, Common Dolphins, Offshore-Bottlenose Dolphins, Sea Lions, Mola-Molas, Swordfish, Sharks, and Turtles!

yacht america replica

In 2013, the yacht America sailed up to San Francisco and served as the hospitality vessel for ORACLE Team USA during the America’s Cup. It was an incredible event where we witnessed fast races between the AC72 catamarans and tons of photographers.

British Columbia

Yacht America and crew sailed up to British Columbia. This was the first big trip the vessel took since it sailed from Florida back in 2005.

23,500 Miles

In 2016, Captain Troy embarked on the trip of a lifetime. He sailed the America from San Diego through the Panama Canal all the way up to Maine. He then took the boat all the way back to San Diego. The trip ended up being 23,500 miles with a lot of great faces, yacht clubs, and volunteers along the way.

yacht america replica

In 2019, Next Level Sailing proudly won the 2019 Sustainable Achievement Award for Overall Small Company. The award was presented by the Port of San Diego Green Business Network.

COVID Pandemic

The COVID pandemic hit, and trips were shut down. The yacht America had never been shut down for two weeks before. Captain Troy decided to make the most of the downtime and do boat maintenance. He recruited relief captain Fathom and they worked very hard for two weeks. The pandemic kept going and they kept varnishing. The world slowly started to open again. Sailing on an open deck in the fresh air was the safest activity, so the company offered whale watching trips with extremely limited capacity. We followed all state guidelines throughout 2020 and 2021.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

In February of 2021, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills filmed an episode aboard the America. The cast had a great time sailing aboard the yacht America. They ate delicious food prepared by the famous chef, Brian Malarkey. We had an all female crew except for Captain Troy. The cast was very impressed that our female crew raised the sails so efficiently. Be sure to watch the episode, “Over-poured and Over-board.” Rest assured, no one went overboard!

First Place

The yacht America proudly won first place in the 2021 America’s Schooner Cup. This event is a charity regatta hosted by the Silver Gate Yacht Club.

Partnership

In the spring of 2021, there was a tragedy. A visiting Australian naval ship hit and killed a fin whale cow and calf in San Diego. This was an accident, but it could have been avoided. For years, Captain Troy has been trying to get the attention of big ships and educate them about whales feeding in San Diego. We don’t just have migrating gray whales, we also have whales that stay in San Diego for months at a time feeding on krill and fish. This tragedy made national news and provided the opportunity for a partnership. Since that awful tragedy, we have had wonderful support from the Navy and the Coast Guard. We let them know where the Fin whales and Blue whales are feeding so they can stay out of the way. In addition, Captain Troy has reached out to warships and submarines during our whale watching trips and notified them about whales feeding. For the most part, these ships have slowed down and altered their course in order to avoid collisions. Since 2021, the partnership has only improved and we are very grateful to our whale watching customers. We would not be able to share this information with big ships without their help. Great teamwork everyone! Thanks for helping educate and protect these magnificent creatures!

Full Capacity

Nearly two years since the COVID pandemic, we operated our first whale watching trip at full capacity on January 1st, 2022. We followed all state guidelines throughout the pandemic. It was surreal that the impact of the pandemic lasted so long. Captain Troy and crew also wanted to feel comfortable with the number of guests allowed per trip. We are eternally grateful to all the guests that sailed with us during the past two years. We would not have been able to stay afloat without you!

First Place, Again!

Once again, we won First Place at the America’s Schooner Cup. It was an exciting race, but we proudly won first place.

Blue Whales

Starting in mid-May, we saw the highest density of Blue Whales the company has ever seen. While these animals are endangered, we were able to witness blue whales almost every day for three months. It was incredible. We are thrilled with the success of our partnership and support of the Navy and the Coast Guard. They have listened to our radio calls and stayed well clear of whales this summer. We look forward to a stronger partnership in years to come.

Our Crew Is Awesome

Get to Know Us

Next Level Sailing prides itself in having a long-standing crew of young and talented sailors. Even our ‘back-up’ crew members have been sailing on the America for an average of eight years with the core crew members with us an average four years. Qualified in First Aid and other Coast Guard required credentials, each of our crew members have some key roles in addition to their all-round charm and local knowledge.

Owner and operator Captain Troy has logged over 200,000 miles aboard the yacht America. He is a walking encyclopedia of all things America’s Cup and a wealth of knowledge about San Diego’s Navy presence and local history. He was second in charge of the 1995 America’s Cup in San Diego and at the forefront of all the current America’s Cup activities.

Sailing Through History: Unveiling the Rich Legacy of Yacht America

Yacht America History

In the world of sailing, certain vessels transcend the boundaries of time and become legends that leave an indelible mark on maritime history. Among these storied vessels, the sailing yacht “America” stands proudly as a symbol of innovation, speed, and the enduring spirit of adventure. Let’s embark on a journey through the annals of maritime lore as we explore the captivating tale of Yacht America.

The Birth of a Legend

Commissioned by a group of New York Yacht Club members in 1850, Yacht America was designed by George Steers and built by William H. Brown. The goal was clear – to build a vessel that could bring glory to the United States in the inaugural sailing competition against British vessels around the Isle of Wight.

The America’s Cup Victory

In 1851, Yacht America, under the command of Captain Richard Brown, crossed the Atlantic to participate in the Royal Yacht Squadron’s 100 Guinea Cup, a race that would later be known as the America’s Cup. America clinched victory with an 8-minute lead over the second boat, the British Aurora, securing the trophy originally established to commemorate the inaugural universal exhibition in London. Upon hearing of America’s triumph, Queen Victoria purportedly inquired about the second-place boat, receiving the response, “ There is no second, your Majesty, ” highlighting the substantial lead over the runner-up. This declaration is attributed to the inception of the competition’s motto, “ There’s No Second. ” Although the trophy lacked a specific name, being known as the “Hundred Guinea Cup” (the guinea, although no longer legally in circulation at the time, represented 21 shillings or £1.05, making 100 guineas equivalent to £105) or “Queen’s Cup,” it adopted the name of the victorious vessel and subsequently became the renowned “ America’s Cup. “

The Impact on Sailing

Yacht America’s triumph not only marked the inception of the America’s Cup but also left an enduring impact on yacht design and racing. The vessel’s sleek lines, innovative rigging, and overall performance set a new standard for sailing excellence. The schooner’s legacy paved the way for future generations of yacht designers and sailors, influencing the evolution of sailing vessels worldwide.

After the America’s Cup

In 1856, the vessel underwent a name change to Camilla. Subsequently, seized as a war prize in 1860 by the Confederate States of America, it was rechristened Memphis. Following the conclusion of the American Civil War, the ship was intentionally sunk in Jacksonville in 1862. Salvaged, refurbished, and reintegrated into service with the US Navy under the moniker America, it was equipped with three bronze Dahlgren cannons and played a role in the blockade of Southern ports. Its active service continued until 1873, when it was retired and sold to Benjamin Franklin Butler, a former general and politician. Butler maintained the vessel in operational condition and entered it in various races.

After his passing, it changed hands multiple times until it underwent restoration in 1921 through the America Restoration Fund. The restored ship was then gifted to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis , where, unfortunately, proper maintenance was lacking. On March 29, 1942, the structure housing the ship collapsed under the weight of a heavy snowfall, causing additional damage. Subsequently, both the wreckage of the structure and the vessel itself were incinerated in 1945.

Sailing Experience Aboard Yacht America

For those fortunate enough to experience sailing aboard a replica or participate in events commemorating Yacht America, the thrill is unparalleled. The vessel’s graceful lines and historical significance create an immersive experience that connects sailors with the roots of competitive yachting. Whether cruising along the coast or participating in regattas, sailing on a vessel inspired by Yacht America is a unique journey through maritime history. Conclusion: As we sail through the 21st century, the legacy of Yacht America endures as a beacon for sailors and enthusiasts alike. From its groundbreaking victory in 1851 to the continued reverence it commands today, Yacht America remains an iconic symbol of American maritime prowess and the timeless allure of sailing. So, raise the sails, catch the wind, and let the spirit of Yacht America carry you on a voyage through the pages of nautical history. Fair winds!

Schooner America Replica Sets Out Around the World

  • By New York Times/AP
  • Updated: April 11, 2016

schooner america

Sailor and businessman Troy Sears is heading out on an epic nautical road trip that might not end until he’s circled the globe with America , a replica of the schooner that gave the America’s Cup its name.

Sears will leave San Diego on Tuesday evening on a tour that will take him to yacht clubs and races up and down the East Coast and then to the Caribbean. His calendar is largely booked through the final race of the America’s Cup in late June 2017 in Bermuda.

From there, he plans to head to Europe and points beyond.

“I’m hoping the tour will take me all the way around the world,” Sears said. “If I go all the way around the world, I’d end up in San Diego.”

At the very least, it’ll be a voyage of a lifetime for Sears, 53, whose company, Next Level Sailing, has operated America’s Cup boats for charters and whale watching trips since 2003.

“This is the only time in my life I will be doing it,” he said. “If you only go once in your life, you want to touch as many clubs and organizations as possible.”

Sears, an America’s Cup aficionado who has had a relationship with two-time defending cup champion Oracle Team USA, visited 34 yacht clubs with his 139-foot America on a West Coast tour last fall.

schooner america

The purpose of the tours is to generate awareness of the 35th defense of the America’s Cup. While the cup is still held by San Francisco’s Golden Gate Yacht Club, the racing will be in Bermuda.

America is scheduled to make more than 100 stops along the East and Gulf coasts between May 7 and just before Thanksgiving. After traversing the Panama Canal, Sears will arrive in New York just in time for the America’s Cup World Series regatta. His 2016 schedule will end with a stop at the Ernest Hemingway Marina in Havana. Then it’s on to the Caribbean and finally Bermuda for the America’s Cup.

“I have come to learn there is a millennial generation which does not know about the event at all, and a baby-boomer generation that has a huge variety of emotions,” Sears said. “They range from being super excited about the catamarans that are used today, to wanting to see the cup remain exactly the way it’s been since they’ve been alive. They love the boats that have been sailed in the cup, the monohulls, since World War II.”

The original America was built to showcase the superiority of American naval architecture at the Great Exhibition in London in 1851. It beat a fleet of British ships around the Isle of Wight in 1851 to win the trophy that became the America’s Cup.

The schooner yacht America

Next week, the Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club will host a replica of one of the most famous sailing vessels of all time, the schooner yacht America .

She will anchor here as part of the promotional tour for the 2017 America’s Cup  to be held in Bermuda.

It will be a grand event and the Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club is proud to act as host for this vessel.

But, as this beautiful schooner visits our harbor, she is not the same replica yacht America built in East Boothbay.

More than 49 years ago, as horns blared and flags fluttered, a sleek black hull slid down the wooden ways of the former Goudy & Stevens shipyard and dipped into the chilly waters of the Damariscotta River in East Boothbay.

The event marked the debut of America , an exact replica of the original schooner yacht that started international big boat racing.

In the 1960s, Rudolph Schaefer, the beer baron, a stalwart of the New York Yacht Club, decided to build a replica of America . The yacht’s designer went to the English naval history archives and found the drawings the Brits made of the original America after she vanquished their best yachts in 1851. Schaefer then hired East Boothbay’s Goudy & Stevens shipyard to build her.

“You have to understand that at that time, Goudy & Stevens was an incredible yard. They had a skill set of workers that were as good as it gets and most of them lived in East Boothbay,” said renowned sailmaker Nat Wilson.

On May 3, 1967, when she was launched, hundreds traveled to East Boothbay to watch her slide down the ways into the Damariscotta River.

Sen. Margaret Chase Smith even asked yard owners if she could invite one of her friends to the launching.

“It was a big, big deal,” said Mary Brewer, retired editor of the Boothbay Register.

Hodgdon Yachts and the Ocean Point Marina now occupy the grounds of the former Goudy & Stevens yard.

“She ( America ) was so beautiful as that shiny black hull slid out of the shed and down the ways,” said Brewer.

She was a wooden vessel. No plastic, no carbon fiber, no steel. Wood. Admirers of traditional wooden sailing yachts, like Wilson, would just smile when she came into view.

The launching became a national news event as helicopters filmed it from above and TV cameras from below. Even National Geographic covered the event.

After the launching, America came back home to East Boothbay for several refits. On one occasion, she was painted white.

A local man, George McKown, became her first mate. One day, his brother, David, then a printer at the Boothbay Register, went down to the docks on his lunch hour and signed on as a deck hand and sailed with her around the world. When he came back to East Boothbay, he walked into the Register and asked for his old job back. He got it.

The 1967 launching of the replica America attracted so much attention because of the accomplishments of the original vessel.

Her story, a tale that is repeated around the world, began in the late 1840s, when a group of New York yachtsmen built her to challenge their British counterparts to a race. In 1851, as Queen Victoria watched from the deck of the royal yacht, the Yankee vessel outraced her 18 counterparts in a match around the Isle of Wight.

As the story goes, Her Majesty watched the Yank win, then asked who was second.

“Your Majesty, there is no second,” was the reply.

The happy Americans brought home a trophy, called the 100 Guinea Cup, installed it in the New York Yacht Club and christened  it “The America’s Cup” in honor of the first championship vessel.

Following the race, she was sold to a Brit and fought on both sides of the American Civil War.

She was owned by a succession of Americans until she was donated to the Naval Academy where she was crushed in a snowstorm in 1942.

In the yachting world, her name became the symbol of international yacht racing.

From 1857 until 1983, the New York Yacht Club successfully defeated all challengers seeking the trophy until the Royal Perth Yacht Club brought it to Australia.

Today, the America’s Cup races are followed worldwide as today’s high tech, multi-hull yachts race at astounding speeds on hydrofoils. In 2014, the yacht Oracle brought the cup back to America during the 2013 race in San Francisco.

The replica yacht America that will sail into Boothbay Harbor next week was built in 1995.

As for the replica vessel built in East Boothbay, Wilson said he remembers her racing in Europe.

“I think she is somewhere in the Caribbean,” he said.

Does anyone know where she is?

The schooner yacht America

Next week, the Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club will host a replica of one of the most famous sailing vessels of all time, the schooner yacht America .

She will anchor here as part of the promotional tour for the 2017 America’s Cup  to be held in Bermuda.

It will be a grand event and the Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club is proud to act as host for this vessel.

But, as this beautiful schooner visits our harbor, she is not the same replica yacht America built in East Boothbay.

More than 49 years ago, as horns blared and flags fluttered, a sleek black hull slid down the wooden ways of the former Goudy & Stevens shipyard and dipped into the chilly waters of the Damariscotta River in East Boothbay.

The event marked the debut of America , an exact replica of the original schooner yacht that started international big boat racing.

In the 1960s, Rudolph Schaefer, the beer baron, a stalwart of the New York Yacht Club, decided to build a replica of America . The yacht’s designer went to the English naval history archives and found the drawings the Brits made of the original America after she vanquished their best yachts in 1851. Schaefer then hired East Boothbay’s Goudy & Stevens shipyard to build her.

“You have to understand that at that time, Goudy & Stevens was an incredible yard. They had a skill set of workers that were as good as it gets and most of them lived in East Boothbay,” said renowned sailmaker Nat Wilson.

On May 3, 1967, when she was launched, hundreds traveled to East Boothbay to watch her slide down the ways into the Damariscotta River.

Sen. Margaret Chase Smith even asked yard owners if she could invite one of her friends to the launching.

“It was a big, big deal,” said Mary Brewer, retired editor of the Boothbay Register.

Hodgdon Yachts and the Ocean Point Marina now occupy the grounds of the former Goudy & Stevens yard.

“She ( America ) was so beautiful as that shiny black hull slid out of the shed and down the ways,” said Brewer.

She was a wooden vessel. No plastic, no carbon fiber, no steel. Wood. Admirers of traditional wooden sailing yachts, like Wilson, would just smile when she came into view.

The launching became a national news event as helicopters filmed it from above and TV cameras from below. Even National Geographic covered the event.

After the launching, America came back home to East Boothbay for several refits. On one occasion, she was painted white.

A local man, George McKown, became her first mate. One day, his brother, David, then a printer at the Boothbay Register, went down to the docks on his lunch hour and signed on as a deck hand and sailed with her around the world. When he came back to East Boothbay, he walked into the Register and asked for his old job back. He got it.

The 1967 launching of the replica America attracted so much attention because of the accomplishments of the original vessel.

Her story, a tale that is repeated around the world, began in the late 1840s, when a group of New York yachtsmen built her to challenge their British counterparts to a race. In 1851, as Queen Victoria watched from the deck of the royal yacht, the Yankee vessel outraced her 18 counterparts in a match around the Isle of Wight.

As the story goes, Her Majesty watched the Yank win, then asked who was second.

“Your Majesty, there is no second,” was the reply.

The happy Americans brought home a trophy, called the 100 Guinea Cup, installed it in the New York Yacht Club and christened  it “The America’s Cup” in honor of the first championship vessel.

Following the race, she was sold to a Brit and fought on both sides of the American Civil War.

She was owned by a succession of Americans until she was donated to the Naval Academy where she was crushed in a snowstorm in 1942.

In the yachting world, her name became the symbol of international yacht racing.

From 1857 until 1983, the New York Yacht Club successfully defeated all challengers seeking the trophy until the Royal Perth Yacht Club brought it to Australia.

Today, the America’s Cup races are followed worldwide as today’s high tech, multi-hull yachts race at astounding speeds on hydrofoils. In 2014, the yacht Oracle brought the cup back to America during the 2013 race in San Francisco.

The replica yacht America that will sail into Boothbay Harbor next week was built in 1995.

As for the replica vessel built in East Boothbay, Wilson said he remembers her racing in Europe.

“I think she is somewhere in the Caribbean,” he said.

Does anyone know where she is?

Grenada Prison Escapees Are Charged With Murder of American Couple

The couple, Ralph Hendry and Kathy Brandel, went missing while sailing off the coast of Grenada.

A catamaran with the name “Simplicity” written on its hull sits on blue water on a sunny day. It is flying the American flag.

By Aimee Ortiz

Three men who had escaped from a prison in Grenada and were accused of hijacking an American couple’s yacht to flee have been charged with their murder, the police said on Thursday.

The couple, Ralph Hendry, 66, and Kathy Brandel, 71, went missing while sailing off the coast of Grenada . They had been spending the winter cruising in the Caribbean in their catamaran called Simplicity, which was found abandoned in neighboring St. Vincent and the Grenadines on Feb. 21.

There was no indication in the latest police statement that the bodies of the couple had been recovered as of Thursday.

Trevon Robertson, 23; Atiba Stanisclaus, 25; and Ron Mitchell, 30, face two counts of “capital murder by intentionally causing the death of Ralph Hendry and Kathleen Brandel,” the Royal Grenada Police Force said.

The authorities from police forces in Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines have given different ages and name spellings for the escapees.

The men were also charged with escaping lawful custody, housebreaking, robbery and two counts of kidnapping; Mr. Stanisclaus is also facing a rape charge, the police said, but no details were offered on those accusations. The three men made their first court appearance on Thursday, and are due back on March 27. The Royal Grenada Police Force did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The police had said in a statement released on Feb. 22 that three men who escaped from a prison in Grenada on Feb. 18 and made their way to St. Vincent using a yacht that had been docked in the St. George area of Grenada.

The prisoners were recaptured on Feb. 21, the same day that the couple’s yacht was found. At the time, the police said they were “currently working on leads that suggest that the two occupants of the yacht may have been killed in the process.”

At a news conference on Feb. 26 , Commissioner Don McKenzie of the Royal Grenada Police Force that “information suggests that, while traveling between Grenada and St. Vincent, they disposed of the occupants.”

During a Feb. 26 news conference , Junior Simmons, superintendent of the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force, said the joint investigation into the disappearance with Grenada police was ongoing, and he said the couple was presumed dead.

The investigation revealed that while sailing from Grenada, “the suspects committed several criminal acts including bodily harm to the couple,” he said.

The couple, who were married for 27 years, were “veteran cruisers,” according to the Salty Dawg Sailing Association , a nonprofit that brings together a community of sailors engaged in long-distance cruising on their boats. The couple were longtime members, the organization said in a statement, and “they both contributed to building the S.D.S.A.”

In a joint family statement posted on the association’s website on Feb. 27, Nick Buro, the son of Ms. Brandel, and Bryan Hendry, the son of Mr. Hendry, said that “if we have learned anything from this tragic event, it’s that we know they left this world in a better place than it was before they were born.”

“Ralph and Kathy lived a life that most of us can only dream of,” the message said. “Sailing the eastern coast of the United States, living on their home Simplicity, making friends with everyone they encountered, singing, dancing and laughing with friends and family — that’s who Ralph and Kathy were and that’s how they will be remembered in our hearts.”
