GLORY, Brooklyn, NY – 1930
The "GLORY" was built in 1896 at Weymouth, MA as the steam yacht "INDOLENT". She began her fishing career in 1914 when she was purchased by Captain Harry Hansen and began sailing from Brooklyn's west side. In 1922, Captain Hansen sold the "INDOLENT" to his son-in-law, Jacob 'Jake' Martin, who would rename her the "GLORY". She would become the benchmark of party boat fishing for the next decade. In 1932, Captain Jacob Martin would go on to own the steam yacht "SACHEM" and pass the helm of the "GLORY" to his son, Captain Jacob 'Chubby' Martin Jr. Photo courtesy of Captain John Bogan Jr.
