The yacht Vigilant

Bill Robinson, The Great American Yacht Designers, Alfred A. Knopf, 1974
The Vigilant, designed and built in 1893, was Nathaniel Herreshoff's first America's Cup defender, defeating Valkyrie II in all three races of the series. She was defeated by Defender during the 1895 America's Cup trials. After being sold several times over the next few years, she was scrapped in 1910.
