    The 19th Century maritime history of Newburyport, MA typically emphasizes the grandeur of its captains homes, the scenic nature of its coastlines and of course, its beautiful and historic lighthouses on Plum Island.
    Less well known, but well-respected at the time, are the many fine ships crafted and constructed for New York and Boston merchants in the boat yards of Newburyport to carry cargoes all over the world.
    Few garnered greater acclaim than The Dreadnought which in the years before The Civil War was celebrated for setting the cross atlantic record by going from Sandy Hook, NJ to Queenstown, Ireland in just nine days and seventeen hours.
    The craft's speed was a function of its sleek lines and solid construction and when mastered by a captain who carried full canvas night and day, it was capable of achieving speeds that would not be approached until the age of the great clipper ships decades later.
