Tea Fleet

Tea Lipton Thomas
The Skaneateles Boat and Canoe Co. was widely recognized for its building of small craft, but by far its most famous order came from members of the party of the famous English yachtsman, and tea merchant, Sir Thomas Lipton, prior to his 1920 challenge for the America’s Cup. The order for more than 100 boats, canoes and yacht tenders brought in an estimated $75,000 to the company.
