Admiralty drawings of the yacht of Peter I "St. Peter" for the construction of a model from wood at a scale of 1:48
The yacht was built in Arkhangelsk by order of Tsar Peter the Great in the spring of 1693. The builders of the yacht were the Dutch ship craftsmen P. Bas and G. Jansen, and its decorations were made by the "carving master" F. Ievlev. Peter I went to sea for the first time on the "St. Peter" on August 6, 1693 during his visit to Arkhangelsk. The young tsar accompanied the Dutch and English merchant ships leaving Arkhangelsk and went with them to the eastern shores of the Kola Peninsula. In May of the following year, 1694, he again comes to Arkhangelsk, from which, again on the yacht "Saint Peter", he sailed to the Solovetsky Islands, and then accompanies another caravan of merchant ships leaving Arkhangelsk to Cape Svyatoy Nos, in other words, to going out to the ocean. The yacht became the first museum object in Arkhangelsk. The decree of 1723 prescribed "if that yacht, although the remains are found, then it is good to put them in a convenient place and order to take care". At the end of the 20s of the 18th century, the yacht was inspected for possible further use, but the hull literally crumbled, which was simply dangerous to send it to sea. By decree, the Arkhangelsk authorities did not dare to disassemble the schooner, and as a result, the ship collapsed by itself without proper care, by 1730.
