Info: 

During the 87 years she's been afloat, Conquest has been owned by a flapper whose ghost is now said to haunt a Washington hotel, participated in a world war, hosted First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, made a Playboy Playmate of the Month look reasonably nautical, housed a seasick parrot, and won the Newport Harbor Yacht Club Opening Day Commodore's Award and Werner Trophy. Conquest has seen a lot, but with a long line of owners keeping her in Bristol condition, it doesn't show.
