Coronet: 1885 Schooner Yacht
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 IYRS, awaiting restoration. Coronet Restoration Partners purchased her in 2006, and restoration has now begun in earnest.
