Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 11, 1989):
A schooner yacht and pilot boat, she is a significant example of the "fisherman profile" design of the yachts of Bowdoin B. Crowninshield, a noted early 20th-century American naval architect whose work was influential in the development of American yachts and fishing schooners. Built (1913) for the purpose of private Arctic exploration and hunting, ADVENTURESS was acquired by the San Francisco Bar Pilots in 1914 and worked until 1952 as a pilot boat, guiding maritime traffic across the treacherous San Francisco Bar into the internationally important and busy port of San Francisco.
