Marine memorabilia auction set for Boston

More than 400 lots of yachting antiques, America's Cup memorabilia and other maritime collectibles will be up for auction Oct. 16 in Boston.

Boston Harbor Auctions is hosting the auction, which will include several lots of furniture, including wood hall tables, desks, side tables, porthole tables and gentlemen’s antiques such as globes, binoculars, clocks and compasses. The sale will have almost 100 ship models, rare silver photography, marine paintings, china dinnerware and ship’s fittings.

The auction will contain a selection of original press photos from America’s Cup races and other trial races dating from the 1930s, when the J Class yachts were introduced.

Many America’s Cup yachts, such as Defender, Rainbow, Yankee, Columbia and Chandler Hovey’s Easterner, among others, are represented in original photographs from noted photographers.

Other original photos include a set of three color shots of President John F. Kennedy aboard a yacht with sailing companions that include a young John Kerry. The reverse of each photo is stamped “By R.L. Knudsen PHC, USN Office of the Naval Aide to the President.”
