The original ship was
launched on 19 June 1852 at McKay’s, East Boston, MA., ship yard. Built for his
own account on speculation, she was immediately sold to Andrew F. Meinke of the
ship broker firm Funch & Meinke, New York.

Sovereign’s leading dimensions are as follows:
— Length of keel 245 feet, on deck, between perpendiculars 258, over all, from
the knight-heads to the taffrail, 265′; extreme beam 44′, depth 23½ feet, and
registers 2421 tons.

PROVENANCE: The half
hull comes from a New England estate, and nothing else is known of its origin
other than she is a finely crafted piece.
