Designed as a pilot schooner by Dennison Lawlor, the Phantom was built in 1868. On March 14, 1886, as New York Pilot Boat #11, she rescued 852 people from the sinking British liner S.S. Oregon off the coast of Long Island. Unfortunately, Phantom herself was lost during the great blizzard of ’88, going aground off Sandy Hook, New Jersey with the total loss of the vessel, boat keeper, cook, and four seamen.
