Design

She was built at the George Lawley & Son yard in Boston, Massachusetts and launched May 26, 1885.

Puritan was an early combination of American and English designs with some of the depth of an cutter but beam and power of a sloop. It was built and skippered by John Malcolm Forbes.

Career

She defeated the New York club's Priscilla then went on to defend the cup against Genesta, a traditional cutter. Immediately following the contest, they began work on an improved version which would be called the Mayflower.
