This splendid 3-masted schooner was built at the beginning of the 20th century for Wilson Marshall, Member of the New York Yacht Club. Luxurious but nevertheless very speedy, she became a legend in 1905 when she won the record for crossing the Atlantic, which she kept for 75 years. Eric Tabarly dethroned her in 1980 with his trimaran "Paul Ricard". 

The little sailboat must have been a little surprised... But he was in the front row to admire her elegance and power!

Photo on panoramic canvas of classic sail in 120x40 cm format.

Pêcheur d'images proposes you a collection of photographs "between Sky & Sea" printed on cotton canvas and mounted on a 3.5 cm frame. Our formats will perfectly suit the decoration of your Home, whether in small or large size, panoramic or vertical, single or triptych.

Philip was born on the banks of the Loire river, and discovered La Trinité-sur-Mer when he was 4 years old. This is where his father gave him his first passion: sailing. The need of sea will not leave him anymore! At 9, he discovered his second passion: the photo thanks to his paternal grandmother who offered him his first camera. In the early 80's, Philip decided to live with his two passions: photographing to navigate and navigate to photographing. Named Painter of the French Navy in 1991, he testifies to the major events related to the sea world in order to preserve the memory of our contemporary maritimity, as had wished Richelieu creating the Corps of Painters of the Navy. Philip, as a sailor-photographer, has only one leitmotiv: to have every day a new desire of image to take and to share with you. For more information : www.plisson.com
