ULTIMATE RESTORATIONS: Cangarda: The Last American Steam Yacht (Series Premiere)

The 1901 steam yacht Cangarda was 136 feet long and 125 tons. Here, ULTIMATE RESTORATIONS host Bob McNeil builds the much smaller “launch,” or motorboat, that accompanies the Cangarda.

KQED presents a new eight-part series, ULTIMATE RESTORATIONS , featuring the spellbinding restorations of irreplaceable masterpieces. ULTIMATE RESTORATIONS showcases the rescue and restoration of some of the most valuable mechanical icons of the Golden Age (1880-1940), a high point in innovation and craftsmanship. The series, hosted by Bob McNeil, tells the spellbinding stories behind eight of American history’s greatest historical and engineering treasures — the world’s largest pipe organ ; a surviving 1920s fire engine ; a “fish car” designed to transport live fish by train ; a priceless carouse l; a World War II spy plane ; one of the first U.S. yachts to round Cape Horn and a famous steam locomotive . The passionate restorers and committed craftspeople discuss the challenges associated with reviving these massive icons to their original glory: moving huge pieces of equipment, salvaging from sea-floor beds, searching for rare parts, and dealing with complicated mechanical systems.

Cangarda, 1910

"Cangarda: The Last American Steam Yacht" - The last existing American stream yacht was nothing more than an eyesore stuck in the mud of the Boston harbor until Bob McNeil came to its rescue. His four-year restoration of the 136-foot vessel revives old construction techniques alongside new technologies with the help of the colorful crew of Rutherford’s Boat Shop in San Francisco. After 112 years and more than a few setbacks, the Cangarda finally sails again.

BROKER'S COMMENTS

CANGARDA may be unique: an obviously gorgeous, fully functioning Edwardian era private pleasure steam yacht of significant size and undoubted provenance. Her rebuild and restoration led by Bob McNeil and executed by Jeffrey Rutherford, completed in 2009, was painstaking in its combination of authenticity with practicality and capability. Apart from all those superlatives, CANGARDA is an easily and economically driven steam yacht, powered by her original steam engine and its associated auxiliaries. That so much of her original carpentry could be re-used in the entirely faithfully rebuilt hull ensures that 21st Century owners can very comfortably, safely and practically live and cruise in this most amazing and admired, beautiful time machine.

RESTORER’S COMMENTS

“Sometimes it is not that people find boats but rather that the boat finds an owner. Most of this is not particularly rational. All the above applies here. Originally shown as a proposed project in the summer of 2002, it was not until the Herreshoff Rendezvous of that year that the “bug” bit. For some reason the idea of restoring CANGARDA really sunk in.” Robert G. McNeil, 2006

REBUILD/ RESTORATION

The rebuild and restoration of CANGARDA was informed by two principal sources of information, and, as in all the best such undertakings, a clear and ambitious vision for how the vessel would be used post restoration, including open sea passage making. The sources were: 1. The existing Pusey & Jones plans preserved at the Hagley Museum, Wilmington, Delaware These records are very fragmentary, containing many small scale plans. Scans of these drawings formed the basis for new drawings prepared by Andrew Davis’s Tri-Coastal Marine to satisfy Coast Guard and ABS requirements. 2. The plethora of photographs from the Fulford Museum, Brockville, Canada And pictures taken and provided by earlier owner/ restorer/ preserver Richard Reedley, and others. Significant effort was made to keep the restored CANGARDA like original by using every part from the original vessel found in storage while mindful of the open sea requirement and subject to all the elements that implies. To make the vessel safely operable, while the steam engines and many of the original valves, sight gages and pressure sensors were restored for re-use, a new oil (rather than coal) fired boiler was constructed, and the operation is automated so that no human is required to be constantly in the engine room during operations. Other than this, the design and outfitting of the engine room is as close to the original as possible. The original electric panel and gauges were installed. The engine room telegraph system and the steam anchor windlass – and the anchor itself - are the originals. Much of the vessel’s original woodwork and fittings, having been carefully stored under earlier ownerships could be re-used, involving often a fascinating process something akin to assembling a complicated jigsaw puzzle without the box’s cover picture. The project’s key carpenter was able to find panels that fitted the exact structure of the cabins, even to the extent he was able to show how one tree was used in sequential pieces placed in the after cabin. Studiously determining how each piece, a panel or a small part of the mouldings, was utilized has added to the authenticity of the restoration. The accommodations were constructed in the original configuration. Sinks in the cabins as well as the water valves are original. Lock sets, hinges, pin rails, handrail parts, bulwarks, bunk faces and drawers and a long list of other items are all original. Of course there are always compromises in such work – for example, CANGARDA has full modern navigational and communication aids (all of which can be concealed when she is dockside). However, if Charles Canfield or George Fulford walked the decks they would not see many apparent changes to the vessel they enjoyed so much.

CANGARDA was originally built in 1901 by Pusey and Jones of Wilmington, Delaware (in the amazing time of five months or less) for Michigan ‘lumber baron’ Charles Canfield - named as a combination of his last name, and that of his wife, Belle Gardner. After a short first ownership, CANGARDA was sold to George Fulford of Brockfield, Ontario, a wealthy businessman and member of the Senate of Canada. The Fulfords renamed the boat MAGEDOMA, a combination of syllables from the names of his wife and children (MAry, GEorge, DOrothy, MArtha). The boat was docked at Fulford Place, the Fulfords’ mansion nestled on the banks of the St. Lawrence River in Brockville, Ontario. The house exists today as the Fulford Museum. Even though George Fulford was killed in an automobile accident in 1905 (the first Canadian to die by such a means) the family cruised MAGEDOMA for twenty years in the Thousand Island area of Lake Ontario. She was a well-known and majestic yacht in these waters. In 1927, Mary Fulford hosted on board the then Prince of Wales, his brother Prince George (later Duke of Kent), and the prime ministers of Britain and Canada, Stanley Baldwin and William Lyon Mackenzie King respectively. At the time of World War II the Fulfords donated the vessel to the Canadian Navy. In 1951 MAGEDOMA was sold to Cameron Peck, who used the vessel until 1954 when she was sold to Frederick Smith. It was Smith who restored the original name of the vessel, CANGARDA. In 1983 CANGARDA was sold to Richard Reedley, who began a major restoration. She was disassembled, the engines sent to England for restoration, and the wood panelling including all the parts put in storage. Unfortunately, after making repairs to the hull, Mr. Reedley was unable to complete the restoration. The hull was placed back in the water and left for some ten years after which time she sank in 1999. A rescue was undertaken by Elizabeth Meyer of J Class Management and the hull then lay on the hard at Fairhaven, Massachusetts with the engine and woodwork in store. This was CANGARDA’s status in 2002 when she found her eventual saviour, the late Bob McNeil. The rebuild/ restoration detailed above by Rutherford’s Boat Shop, Richmond, California, began in 2004 and was completed in 2009.

History on the Water

The Cangarda is a rare jewel from the steam-yacht era. Also, it is one of only three Edwardian steam yachts in existence. Built-in 1901 at Pusey and Jones Shipyard in Wilmington, Delaware, Cangarda was a toy for the super-rich.

Classic Steamship Cangarda at anchor. Sailing in New England on Maine Yacht Charters.

The Cangarda was host to prime ministers of England and Canada. The Prince of Wales, who went on to become King Edward VIII, also enjoyed sailing this magnificent ship. During World War II the Royal Canadian Navy used the ship as a training vessel.

Bringing Her Into the 21 st Century

In the 1980s, a new owner began a restoration effort. The new owner sent the seven steam engines to England for restoration. The yacht’s elaborate wooden components were lovingly restored. Unfortunately, the owner became ill, and the project was abandoned.

In 2004, her current owner restarted the restoration effort. Finally, skilled craftsmen at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast , Maine, finished restoring this historic ship. 

Sailing New England in Style

Cangarda is now ready to welcome guests with luxurious cruising accommodations for up to 9 guests in 4 cabins. The master cabin features a queen-size berth, the VIP cabin has a queen-size berth with a single, and there are two additional cabins featuring double-size berths. Cruise the coast of New England in style aboard a magnificent luxury yacht with an illustrious past!

Cangarda, the touchscreen steam yacht

by Ben Ellison · December 1, 2010

Cangarda_touchscreen_steam1_cPanbo.JPG

Camden Harbor is pretty quiet these days, but on Monday afternoon — while I was stripping electronics off Gizmo prior to her inevitable haul-out — Cangarda, the only existing U.S.-built steam yacht, suddenly slipped around the corner and silently maneuvered onto the Wayfarer dock just ahead of me.  Yesterday I was further thrilled when Capt. Steve Cobb himself showed me around, paying special attention to his beloved engine room, where he’d fired up the boiler in order to check that the “water chemistry” was proper for lay up.  You see, I already knew a fair bit about Cangarda , though I’d never seen the 126 foot vessel in all her awesome flesh before…

In fact, when I wrote about Cangarda in 2003 , largely with Cobb’s help, she was just an empty worn-out hull, a warehouse of dusty parts, and a gleam in his eye.  But the story sort of worked out as hoped, as you can read in part at Wikipedia .  Bob McNeil bought the “kit,” shipped it all to Rutherford’s Boatshop (lots of good photos), and for years Cobb spent long periods in California helping to execute what might be called a hybrid restoration.  Because McNeil wanted to actually cruise Cangarda is a semi-practical manner, he switched her coal-fired boiler to an automated diesel-fired system.  Which is why you see the incredible juxaposition below of a 1901 triple expansion steam engine — that runs now like it did then — alongside an elaborate touchscreen boiler control system.  And no worries about that scary-looking slate and knife-switch electrical panel; it’s purely decorative as the yacht now has up-to-code wiring and two diesel generators (tucked in where the coal bins used to be)…

wow! what a beauty! -mo

There is at least one other steam yacht, “Mascot” built by William Holland of D’Iberville Mississippi for private owners in Louisiana. It was heavily damaged in Katrina and has been restored to beautiful condition. It similarly has computerized systems to run an antique steam engine drive. The owners are steam fans and have a Navy Admirals launch they plan to restore next. Will

When Steve D. of Passagemaker fame surveyed our boat he recommended to me the book The Sand Pebbles, which combines detailed passages about the care and feeding of a 1930s marine steam power plant with China-on-the-verge-of-revolution adventure. It was great fun.

' src=

What fun Ben, I am truly envious. I would love to see another view from you while the vessel is underway in the spring.

' src=

Wow…this is just about the coolest thing ever. How long is the boat in Camden? At Wayfarer or Yachting Solutions?

Ben Ellison

Cangarda will spend the winter inside a big shed at Wayfarer Marine, and I’ll surely be lobbying for a ride next Spring 😉 By the way, this is not only classic yacht that Bob McNeil has restored. Check out the 1911, 58′ Herreshoff P-Class racing sloop Joyant, also overhauled (to say the least) at Rutherford’s in California. She has no engine, which is brave, and now races in New England, sometimes with Cangarda as mother ship: http://rutherfordsboatshop.com/completed.html McNeil and Rutherford are also involved in restoring the 1885, 133′ schooner yacht Coronet on the IYRS campus in Newport, RI: http://www.iyrs.org/AboutUs/Projects/CoronetRestoration/tabid/522/Default.aspx Thanks for keeping these boats alive, Bob!

Thanks, Adam. Since I’m also inclined to take advice from Steve D’Antonio, I checked out The Sand Pebbles at Amazon and found a nice surprise. For some reason the Kindle edition (which can also be read fine on an iPad, iPhone, or Android device) is only $4. No brainer! http://www.amazon.com/Sand-Pebbles-Bluejacket-Books/dp/1557504466/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1291292138&sr=1-1

There’s some interesting Cangarda material — including Bob McNeil’s log of the first long ocean leg — on a great blog written by Andy Davis, who served as naval architect for the restoration: http://www.tallshipdesigner.blogspot.com/ McNeil, incidentally, calls her “the last American Edwardian steam yacht” as opposed to Wikipedia’s “last surviving US-built steam yacht in the US, and one of only three left in the world.”

Wow, just realized that Andy Davis’s company, Tri-Coastal Marine, has a superb section on Cangarda, both history and restoration: http://www.tricoastal.com/Cangarda/Cangarda.html

Ben, I think it’s out of copyright. I’m sure you’ll like it. While some of the technical bits escaped me, it’s well-written and I understood the key “fix” (you’ll see). Definitely more accessible than the Patrick O’Brian books. I’ve read all 21 of them thrice and I still don’t know what cross-catharpins, Bentinck shrouds, or a dumb-chalder is.

Hi Bill, Have a look at this website, it has some great shots of Cangarda in a race with Medea, another steamyacht. http://www.printroom.com/ViewGallery.asp?userid=limeydal&gallery_id=2066331

' src=

If you are interested in following such things, some discussion of the Cangarda restoration was also reported in the Classic Yacht Symposium proceedings published by the Herreshoff Museum in Bristol, RI.

Ben. Thanks for a fine article. It seems that every rare or historic vessel has some sort of superlative attached to it: oldest, most original, last etc. Cangarda is no exception. Here’s an explanation. Of the 600 (perhaps twice that) steam yachts built in America and Great Britain during the ‘Gilded Age’ (1880-1914), only a precious few (3) still exist. Cangarda is the only remaining American built example. Cangarda, Medea and Ena are of a type: steam powered, tall stack, clipper bow, long counter stern and narrow beam with a vestigial sailing rig. There are a few others of that type in existence but they were built later and are much larger: Nahlin, Savarona, and Haida come to mind but all are diesel. Delphine is still steam but looks nothing like the others; a much more “modern” design. It has been said (by them what knows) that the classic steam yachts were the ultimate reach of marine design and engineering; the perfect combination of art and science and the most beautiful power yachts ever built. spc

Humorous aside: Where Steve and I live, we get to share the Bays with not only the “the oldest active commercial schooner in the United States”: http://schoonerfrench.com/ but also “the oldest documented sailing vessel in continuous service in the United States”: http://www.stephentaber.com/history.html Both were built in 1871, and both are great operations today.

Nice yacht – well done Steve. But like the first post says, there are more than 3 steam yachts left. Carola in Scotland: http://www.nationalhistoricships.org.uk/ships_register.php?action=ship&id=9

Ben, I was a deckhand on the Vernon Langille with Katy Green and Steve Bailey on your first voyage as skipper. I was a volunteer at the Apprenticeshop in summer of 1982, the kid from California! I left and went Oyster Dredging with Ed Farley and Gino Scalzo. In the spring of 2009 I got a service call to help start up the oil burners on Cangarda. They were built by a former employer and the model was my specialty. Steve was and Bob were glad I showed up because I was the first person to really make the burners operate with a clear stack and no flame outs. I helped them straighten out quite a few combustion related problems, set up the burners so the touch screen could control them, made the fist sea trails, took the boat to LA and helped race against Madea. Lots of good memories of it all. Glad to see you involved and have the opportunity to connect. Eugene Porter, Tiburon, CA

Small world, Eugene, and so glad you came by! Steve Cobb is no longer on Cangarda, and I’ve heard the vessel has been laid up with mechanical issues quite a bit, but Steve is now running the beautiful Atlantide: http://www.charterworld.com/news/newly-refitted-122-classic-motor-yacht-atlantide-leaves-front-street-shipyard Of course he wishes she were steam but he’s excited about possible voyages of exploration, perhaps as far as the Med. Meanwhile, the Vernon Langille is back in the area and was using my mooring float when we went cruising in July. She has an engine now but here are recent photos showing how she still sails: http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthread.php?152219-A-nice-bit-of-sailing-in-a-Pinky-Schooner For the unfamiliar the Langille is fine-ended 35-foot Tancook Schooner that is almost entirely open and was originally built without an engine but with amazing Egyptian Cotton sails, including a killer club-footed fore topsail. When I started running her with Eugene and other Apprentices the seamanship training program was to sail/row about a cord and half of firewood that we’d piled into the midships area from Bath to Monhegan. That meant dealing either with the capricious winds and whirling currents of the Kennebec River OR the even more capricious winds and whirling tides the Sasanoa/Sheepscot shortcut. I think we charged about $150 for the firewood hand delivered up onto the pier, though the round trip sometimes took four days or so. It was one of the most ridiculous and challenging things I’ve ever done in a boat, and most of the time it was wicked fun. The Vernon Langille could sometimes pass similar size modern sailboats, even on the wind, and could maneuver almost as well as a spade rudder boat, though four strong people on big oars could only make about 3 knots max in a calm. I ran the boat for several seasons, and she’s what got me involved in WoodenBoat School as they leased her after the A-Shop went through some hard times. She’s been sunk twice, the first time rather famously (there was a damn photo boat right behind her), but she’s kept on keepin on: http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1499&dat=19810709&id=RAgqAAAAIBAJ&sjid=xCkEAAAAIBAJ&pg=5223,4240866

Cruising the Moskva River: A short guide to boat trips in Russia’s capital

cangarda yacht

There’s hardly a better way to absorb Moscow’s atmosphere than on a ship sailing up and down the Moskva River. While complicated ticketing, loud music and chilling winds might dampen the anticipated fun, this checklist will help you to enjoy the scenic views and not fall into common tourist traps.

How to find the right boat?

There are plenty of boats and selecting the right one might be challenging. The size of the boat should be your main criteria.

Plenty of small boats cruise the Moskva River, and the most vivid one is this yellow Lay’s-branded boat. Everyone who has ever visited Moscow probably has seen it.

This option might leave a passenger disembarking partially deaf as the merciless Russian pop music blasts onboard. A free spirit, however, will find partying on such a vessel to be an unforgettable and authentic experience that’s almost a metaphor for life in modern Russia: too loud, and sometimes too welcoming. Tickets start at $13 (800 rubles) per person.

Bigger boats offer smoother sailing and tend to attract foreign visitors because of their distinct Soviet aura. Indeed, many of the older vessels must have seen better days. They are still afloat, however, and getting aboard is a unique ‘cultural’ experience. Sometimes the crew might offer lunch or dinner to passengers, but this option must be purchased with the ticket. Here is one such  option  offering dinner for $24 (1,490 rubles).

If you want to travel in style, consider Flotilla Radisson. These large, modern vessels are quite posh, with a cozy restaurant and an attentive crew at your service. Even though the selection of wines and food is modest, these vessels are still much better than other boats.

Surprisingly, the luxurious boats are priced rather modestly, and a single ticket goes for $17-$32 (1,100-2,000 rubles); also expect a reasonable restaurant bill on top.

How to buy tickets?

Women holding photos of ships promise huge discounts to “the young and beautiful,” and give personal invitations for river tours. They sound and look nice, but there’s a small catch: their ticket prices are usually more than those purchased online.

“We bought tickets from street hawkers for 900 rubles each, only to later discover that the other passengers bought their tickets twice as cheap!”  wrote  (in Russian) a disappointed Rostislav on a travel company website.

Nevertheless, buying from street hawkers has one considerable advantage: they personally escort you to the vessel so that you don’t waste time looking for the boat on your own.

cangarda yacht

Prices start at $13 (800 rubles) for one ride, and for an additional $6.5 (400 rubles) you can purchase an unlimited number of tours on the same boat on any given day.

Flotilla Radisson has official ticket offices at Gorky Park and Hotel Ukraine, but they’re often sold out.

Buying online is an option that might save some cash. Websites such as  this   offer considerable discounts for tickets sold online. On a busy Friday night an online purchase might be the only chance to get a ticket on a Flotilla Radisson boat.

This  website  (in Russian) offers multiple options for short river cruises in and around the city center, including offbeat options such as ‘disco cruises’ and ‘children cruises.’ This other  website  sells tickets online, but doesn’t have an English version. The interface is intuitive, however.

Buying tickets online has its bad points, however. The most common is confusing which pier you should go to and missing your river tour.

cangarda yacht

“I once bought tickets online to save with the discount that the website offered,” said Igor Shvarkin from Moscow. “The pier was initially marked as ‘Park Kultury,’ but when I arrived it wasn’t easy to find my boat because there were too many there. My guests had to walk a considerable distance before I finally found the vessel that accepted my tickets purchased online,” said the man.

There are two main boarding piers in the city center:  Hotel Ukraine  and  Park Kultury . Always take note of your particular berth when buying tickets online.

Where to sit onboard?

Even on a warm day, the headwind might be chilly for passengers on deck. Make sure you have warm clothes, or that the crew has blankets ready upon request.

The glass-encased hold makes the tour much more comfortable, but not at the expense of having an enjoyable experience.

cangarda yacht

Getting off the boat requires preparation as well. Ideally, you should be able to disembark on any pier along the way. In reality, passengers never know where the boat’s captain will make the next stop. Street hawkers often tell passengers in advance where they’ll be able to disembark. If you buy tickets online then you’ll have to research it yourself.

There’s a chance that the captain won’t make any stops at all and will take you back to where the tour began, which is the case with Flotilla Radisson. The safest option is to automatically expect that you’ll return to the pier where you started.

VESSEL REVIEW | Sinichka – Electric commuter boats designed for Russia’s Moskva River

cangarda yacht

A series of three new electric monohull commuter ferries have already begun operational sailings on the Moskva River in the Russian capital Moscow.

Built by Russian shipyard Emperium, sister vessels Sinichka , Filka , and Presnya – all named after rivers in Moscow – are being operated by the Moscow Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure Development (Moscow Deptrans). They are the first units of a planned fleet of 20 vessels that will serve the capital city and other nearby communities. The new ferry system will be the water transport system to be operated on the Moskva River in 16 years.

Each vessel has a welded aluminium hull, an LOA of 21 metres, a beam of 6.2 metres, a draught of only 1.4 metres, a displacement of 40 tonnes, and capacity for 80 passengers plus two crewmembers. Seating is available for 42 passengers on each ferry, and the main cabins are also fitted with USB charging ports, wifi connectivity, tables, toilets, and space for bicycles and scooters. The cabin layout can be rearranged to allow the operator to adjust the distances between the seats and to install armrests of varying widths.

cangarda yacht

An open upper deck is also accessible to passengers and is the only area on each ferry where smoking is allowed.

The ferries are all of modular construction with each ferry’s wheelhouse, main cabin, and other structural elements being built as complete, separate components. This enables the ferries to be easily dismantled for transport to anywhere in Russia by rail and then quickly re-assembled within seven days.

The ferries are also ice-capable. Recently completed operational trials on the Moskva showed that the vessels can also easily navigate under mild winter conditions with broken surface ice, though year-round operations are planned for the entire fleet.

The ferries are each fitted with 500kWh lithium iron phosphate battery packs that supply power to two 134kW motors. This configuration can deliver a maximum speed of 11.8 knots, a cruising speed of just under 10 knots, and a range of 150 kilometres.

Emperium said the transfer of rotation of electric motors to the propeller is carried out by direct drive. As a propulsion installation, a pulling rotary propeller-steering column with double screws is used. The installation of double pulling screws, with similar power, allows an operator to increase the efficiency of the propulsion system to deliver a slightly higher speed or to reduce energy consumption. This arrangement also provides the ferries with enhanced manoeuvrability necessary for navigating in close quarters.

The batteries themselves have projected service lives of 10 to 12 years and are fitted with safety features such as built-in fire extinguishers and gas vents. Quick-disconnect features allow the batteries to be easily removed for replacement or maintenance.

Some of our readers have expressed disquiet at our publication of reviews and articles describing new vessels from Russia. We at Baird Maritime can understand and sympathise with those views. However, despite the behaviour of the country’s leaders, we believe that the maritime world needs to learn of the latest developments in vessel design and construction there.

River Cruise on Luxurious Radisson Boat

Equipped with ice-breaking technology, these huge fancy yachts are the only river cruisers running all year around. The round trip journey takes two and a half hours and floats past all the big sights like the White House, Novodevichy monastery and the Kremlin. There’s a large open air observation deck up top, while the main body of the ship houses a restaurant with a dance floor for a romantic post dinner dance. For a particularly romantic experience take one of the evening boats and admire the bright lights of the city skyline at night.

The most relaxing and picturesque tour that Moscow can offer: a great way to see the city center and its main attractions. This is a perfect alternative to exploring the city by car, if you only have time to do sightseeing during weekday rush hours.

Your English-speaking guide is eager to share every bit of their knowledge about the surrounding landscape, the architecture and historical details.

We conduct Moscow river tour on Radisson Flotilla boats all year around!  It’s warm inside during winter months, while there’s air conditioning during hot summer days. You may also treat yourself to drinks, lunch or dinner on board (drinks and food are not included in tour price).
