The artist James Edward Buttersworth often did commissions for members of the New York Yacht Club. The graceful ships were highly prized and art was a way to preserve their posterity. Ambassadress was purchased in 1877 by William Backhouse Astor Jr., an American businessman who also owned and bred racehorses at his Hudson River estate including the 1876 Kentucky Derby winner Vagrant. He eventually sold this schooner to Nathaniel Thayer of Boston in 1884.
