English: The Tree Brothers was originally built as the iron paddle-steamer Cornelius Vanderbilt and launched 1857 at Greenpoint, New York. In 1873 the vessel converted to a full-rigged clipper without machinery. She spent most of her time in the grain trade between San Francisco, Le Havre, Liverpool, and New York City where she acquired an enviable reputation for speed and handling. Most recently (1899), the vessel was a coal hulk at Gibraltar and was not broken up until 1929.[1]
Dimensions: length × beam × depth: = 328.5 × 48 × 32 ft (100.1 × 14.6 × 9.8 m) and tonnage: 2972 tons. She was in her time the largest sailing ship in the world.[2]
