The yacht 'America'
A portrait of the schooner yacht 'America' under full sail in port-broadside view. She was designed by George Steers for John C. Stevens, the Commodore of the New York Yacht Club, and built in 1851 in New York to take on Britain's formidable Royal Yacht Squadron. Nicknamed the 'low, black schooner', the 'America' challenged the squadron for the Hundred Sovereign Cup (often known mistakenly as the Hundred Guineas Cup).
