"Coronet" yacht like "Wanderer"

leave a comment »

The yacht “Coronet” which to my recollection looks like the “Wanderer” more than not, though that’s from an old memory of the painting. The basics are there, very large with triangle sails aloft and a low waterline. Notice the scale of the person standing near the stern to get an idea of its size. Later “J” size yachts, with stainless steel wire for rigging were even larger, well so it seems looking at the model in the now Long Island Maritime Museum.
