Description

HILARIA is as fine an example as they come of just why her designer, Sparkman & Stephens, and builder, Abeking and Rasmussen, are among the best of the best. After more than half a century of almost constant sailing, she still does exactly what her original, sailing fanatic owner wanted: races fast and comfortably under whatever handicap system is thrown at her; cruises easily and comfortably. In current ownership for a decade HILARIA has been maintained to ensure everything works; well tested in 2019’s Panerai Transat Classique: Lanzarotte - St Kitts, and the return passage to the Mediterranean in the same year. To say that HILARIA is very capable is an understatement. And then there’s her looks, and provenance.

History

SPARKMAN & STEPHENS DESIGN NO. 1833
ABEKING & RASMUSSEN BUILD NO. 6245

On his passing at the age of 80 in 1985, one newspaper obituary described HILARIA’s first owner, Hubert R. ‘Hugh’ Schaddelee, as an “avid yachtsman”; another as, “a yachtsman and sailboat racer, a director of American Natural Resources Co” … in that order. Bolstered by continuing his father’s success in the utilities industry - electricity and natural gas supply - Albion, Michigan-born Schaddelee was able to indulge his passion for yachting and offshore racing; more than once via arguably the ‘best of the best’ designers and builders of his generation: Sparkman & Stephens of New York and Abeking & Rasmussen of Lemwerder, near Bremen, Germany.

This was the second of Schaddelee’s S&S/ A&R HILARIAs. The first was a 55 ft /17 m yawl built in wood in 1953 and particularly successful on the SORC circuit. By the mid-1960s, Sparkman & Stephens were championing aluminum construction for larger racer-cruisers with serious intent. Their experience with the build by Abeking & Rasmussen (their first in this construction method) of the welded aluminium 73 ft yawl GERMANIA VI for famously particular German industrialist Alfried Krupp was excellent, and everything learned would have been applied to HILARIA. Olin J. Stephens continued to enthuse about aluminium hulls to the end of his extraordinarily long life; that HILARIA is still roaming and racing the oceans as intended, speak volumes.

Hugh Schaddelee was a Fort Lauderdale, Florida resident by the time of the 1966 HILARIA’s commissioning, but still drawn to home waters for the big Lakes races from Port Huron and from Chicago to Mackinac Island. HILARIA was overall and Class A winner of the 1968 Port Huron-Mackinac Race, winning on corrected time from the line-honours winner, NORSAGA, once and now again the Charles Nicholson 12-Metre TRIVIA. Despite many podium places on the US eastern seaboard circuit this may have been Schaddelee's proudest.

After Schaddelee’s time, HILARIA continued to notch up significant victories through the decades. In 1980, in the ownership of C.F. Chapin and G.H. Schryver, she won Class D in the Newport Bermuda Race; in 1985's Chicago-Mackinac, then owned by Robert Stoker, she was winner of the Chicago-Mackinac Cup for Line Honours and the Theodore M Dunlap Trophy for 1st in Class; and in 1995, then owned by Dirk Lohan, she was winner of PHRF Class 6 in the Chicago-Mackinac.

Since HILARIA’s present owner purchased her in Massachusetts in 2011, she has crossed the Atlantic three times:
2012 Massachusetts via Azores to Mediterranean
2019 Panerai Transat Classique: Lanzarotte - St Kitts
2019 Antigua via Azores to Mediterranean

And she has sailed and raced at Antigua Classic Regatta, Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez, Cannes Regates Royales, Vele d'Epoca di Imperia, Monaco Classic Week, Trophée Bailli de Suffren and Corsica Classic. And cruised the Mediterranean and Caribbean.
