RELIANCE Signed Lithograph
Reliance, is from The Great Yachts series. Reliance, the 1903 America's Cup defender, was a giant sailboat of unprecedented technical boldness. Ninety feet on the waterline, one hundred forty-four feet on deck with a one hundred ton lead keel, this yacht had the largest sail plan ever set on a single mast. Her 16,700 square feet of working sail extended 199 feet 6 inches above the water and 201 feet 6 inches from the tip of the bowsprit to the end of her main boom. Captain Charlie Barr led a total of seventy-two afterguard and crew in triumphant racing victories of this most classic Herreshoff yacht.
