"30' lwl New York Yacht Club 30-class sloops of 1905. Eighteen were built over the course of a single winter of which about half still survive. Anemone, NY-30 [#647] is in the Herreshoff Marine Museum's collection, awaiting restoration." (Source: Bray, Maynard. 2004.)

Model discussion:
"... I have been working on a model [for the New York 30] and it is now nearly completed. It is the first model I have worked on to be under the '1/4 beam length' measurements [of the just established Universal Rule], and I am well pleased with it, and also it has been more pleasure to work on it, as I have not had the restraint of getting the biggest boat possible for the W.L. length. ..." (Source: Herreshoff, N. G. [Letter to the New York Yacht Club.] Bristol, R. I., November 16, 1904.)

"#640s, #642s, #643s, #647s, #648s were added by CvdL to the list of vessels built from this model because they were also NY30s." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
