The schooner yacht Atlantic was built for Wilson Marshall, designed by William Gardner of Gardner and Cox, and built by Townsend & Downey S & R., Co. Shooters Island, NY in 1903. She had principal dimensions of LOA: 185, Beam: 29.5ft., Draft: 17.5, and a weight of 303 GRT. Atlantic's greatest claim to fame came in 1905 when she was one of eleven yachts to compete for the Emperors Cup put up by Kaiser Wilhelm for a race from New York to Lizard Head, England. She was captained by Charlie Barr, a two-time Americas Cup winner, who drove Atlantic through a violent gale and crossing the Atlantic in 12 days, 4 hours. Her 348-mile day has never been bettered by a monohull sailing yacht, and it was not until 1968 when Eric Taberly crossed the Atlantic in his 58-foot triamaran was the overall record surpassed. She was transferred to the U.S. Coast Guard for World War II, and was later used for sail training at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Eventually she was broken up, and attempts to salvage her for restoration failed. She ended her career on the banks of the Delaware River.
