More About Design 736 - Egret

Back in May we posted an article about Egret, a 49'-5" yawl launched in '47. We found these great images of her in the files.


  1. I believe these photos are part of a series taken by Stanley Rosenfeld in 1947 about 1-2 months after Egret was launched. The originals are in the Rosenfeld collection at Mystic Seaport. Several were used in an article on Egret in The Rudder magazine, I think October 1947 was the date. One of them was also used for the cover shot of the magazine. All of them were shot in black and white.

  2. I also beleive the original owner, Charles Porter Schutt had a scale model of Egret built. This was confirmed by my brother who said that he had seen the model in the model room at the New York Yacht Club.
