Description: The history of yachting can be stretched back to an improbable past, but it really has its origins on the inland seas and waterways of seventeenth-century Holland. From there it was taken to the England of Charles II and with the Dutch settlers to the New World. The nineteenth century saw yachting at its most magnificent — its splendour was epitomized in the Grand Yachting of the 1890s, the era of Nathaniel Herreshoff and Lord Dunraven, and its unbridled extravagance in steam yachting, which brought about some of the loveliest expressions of marine architecture and some of the craziest of marine follies.
