PHOTO: Restoration of the 1885 schooner yacht Coronet

Published on May 30th, 2013

The restoration of the 1885 schooner yacht Coronet is underway on the wharf of the International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, RI. All hull frames and deck beams have now been erected, with the last few midships frames having joined the bow and stern this past weekend. Owner Bob McNeil is personally handling the restoration of the original interior paneling. He and his team will soon tackle a rebuild of her grand marble main stairway. Re-launch is still down the road, but a few key steps closer today. Update courtesy of T.J. Perrotti, Perrotti Performance Design
