She was designed for crossing the ocean in style, featuring a marble staircase, stained glass doors, mahogany paneled staterooms, and a piano in the main salon. Since 1995, she has been on the campus of the IYRS in Newport, RI under restoration. In 2006, Coronet Restoration Partners purchased the project and has continued progress on a full restoration. The project is open to the public and can be visited on the IYRS campus. MORE INFO
