‘Corsair III’                                                                                                  (click on the image to return to the previous page)

J. Pierpont, former commodore of the New York Yacht Club, was asked by a friend how much it costs to run one.

He replied “anyone who asks how much it costs to run a yacht cannot afford to run one”.

He had his third Corsair built in 1899 and kept it for 31 years.

Designed by Beard-Webb, she was 240’ long with a 33’3” beam and had a 16’ draught.

The interior was luxurious with lounges, a dining room with an ingenious domed deck head, six state rooms, a library, cabins for staff, personal servants for guests, and all the fitting out in the best and most expensive materials.
