In 1993, fundraising began for the build of a second ship for the Jubilee Sailing Trust. The ship would be built of wood, with disabled people forming part of the build team, which would bring ashore the JST ethos of integration.

Later that year, naval architect Tony Castro was commissioned to design the ship. Tenacious eventually sailed on her maiden voyage 1,548 days after her keel was laid, on 1st  September 2000 from Southampton. Her name was thought up by the Hon. Jacquetta Cator, wife of Francis who was President at the time.
