The Cangarda, Mystic, Seaport

This is one of the most beautiful boats I've seen.  It's a steam powered, 126 foot, luxury yacht, named Cangarda, built in 1901.  The original boat was almost lost and fell into so much disrepair, that the original hull was damaged beyond repair.  Careful laser guided measurements were made of the original hull and it was reversed engineered and totally reconstructed.  Today it serves as a museum and private yacht.  It also spent the winter at Mystic Seaport.  You can read more about its history here.

  1. That's a wonderful, sleek yacht. It's new hull was a labor of love. I'm surprised the yacht survived, most from that era didn't. Thanks for the post.
