Coronet1885

America's Most Historic Yacht

Welcome to the Coronet Blog

Posted By on November 25, 2009

Welcome to the home page for the classic yacht, Coronet.  Coronet was first launched in 1885, and was one of the most elegant sailing yachts of her day.  She was designed for crossing the ocean in style, and featured a marble staircase, stained glass doors, mahogany paneled staterooms, and a piano in the main salon.

Since 1995, Coronet has been on the campus of the International Yacht Restoration School, awaiting restoration.  Coronet Restoration Partners purchased her in 2006, and restoration has now begun in earnest.

We’ll be following Coronet’s team of shipwrights here as they bring this classic boat back to her former glory.  We’ll cover it all, from harvesting the timber to restoring the original interior.  If you are a builder, a hobbyist, a historian, or just enamored with classic boats, we think you’ll enjoy watching this beautiful vessel come back to life.

If you see this (more…) at the bottom of a post, that means that the post continues on another page.  Just click it and you’ll go to the rest of the post.

    Could you please give us a little more info on why the project was paused and if and when it will resume? That way I will not have to continually log into this site and again and again be disappointed in no progress( I have follow this site fron the very beginning and this is discouraging)

    Hi Ken,
    Unfortunately I don’t have info to share on why the project is currently paused. That’s between the owner and project manager. In the meantime, you can create a Google alert that will send you a message when this website is updated, and save you the trouble of continually checking in. In the box where it asks for a topic, enter Coronet1885. That should keep the alerts pretty much focused on just this site.
    Best,
    Tom
