Galatea, a British Americas Cup challenger, Mr William Henn
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/db/Jsj-136-galatea.jpg
Galatea, a gaff cutter, was designed by John Beavor-Webb (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Beavor-Webb) and built in 1885 for owner Lieutenant William Henn, R.N. of the Royal Northern Yacht Club (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Northern_Yacht_Club).
The all-metal Galatea had a steel frame, a lead-filled steel keel, and a riveted steel-planked hull, painted white. The deck was teak.

From 1888 until 1894, Mr. and Mrs. Henn lived aboard Galatea in Britain. Following Lt. Henn's death in 1894, Mrs. Henn continued to live aboard the yacht until her death in 1911.
In January 1912, the Galatea was sold for scrap and broken up.

A lot more information on the GALATEA here, even if you don't read Italian...

... the saloon was quite the High Victorian boudoir...

Classic.
Perfected over decades of refinement.
