The ATLANTIC, a three-masted racing schooner, was built in 1903 at the Townsend and Downey shipyard for Wilson Marshall.

Two years later she achieved her greatest honor when she was one of eleven yachts to compete for and win the "Ocean Race" and its large trophy, the Emperor's Cup, put up by Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany.

Atlantic's professional captain Charles Barr, a veteran of America's Cup campaigns in Columbia (1899 and 1901) and Reliance (1903), drove the powerful schooner through a violent gale to a crossing in 12 days, 4 hours. Her 348-mile day's run on May 23-24 has never been bettered, and her overall time was not beaten until 1968

Sold to James Cox Bradley, Atlantic had the distinction of serving in World War I as a mother ship for submarine chasers, and after World War I she was sold to Cornelius Vanderbilt.

Atlantic did little racing thereafter and in World War II she was transferred to the U.S. Coast Guard for use in antisubmarine duty. Following the war she was brought to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy for sail training from from 1941-1947.
