The America was an American schooner yacht. The yacht gave its name to the America’s Cup which is still held today. She won the “One Hundred Sovereigns Cup” in 1851.
On his return to New York the owner John Cox Stevens donated the won “One Hundred Sovereigns Cup” to the New York Yacht Club and with this prize founded the America’s Cup, which was held for the first time in 1870 before New York between the yachts Magic (USA) and Cambria (Great Britain).
Later, the yacht served as a cruise ship in the Mediterranean, as a training ship and in the American Civil War on the side of the Northern States. In 1926 the yacht was stored in a shed in Annapolis and rotted until the hull was scrapped in 1946.
