Schooner AMERICA HalfHull

Schooner AMERICA
The Low Black schooner. She was 95' on deck with a beam of 23' and displaced 180 tons. The AMERICA was built at Browns shipyard on the east river in New York City. It is thought that she was designed by George Steers in 1851. AMERICA was born as a result of the industrial revolution. Without it there would not have been any reason to have built her much less sailed across the Alantic and race against the fleet of the Royal Yacht Squadron. This was the beginning of the Americas Cup the most prestigious race in yachting.
