Columbia was an American racing yacht built in 1899 for the Americas Cup races. She was designed and built in 1898 by Nathanael Herreshoff and the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company for owners J. Pierpont Morgan and Edwin Dennison Morgan of the New York Yacht Club. She had a nickel steel frame, a tobin bronze hull, and a steel mast (later replaced with one of Oregon pine.) She was the defender of the tenth Americas Cup race that same year against British challenger Shamrock as well as the defender of the eleventh Americas Cup race in 1901 against British challenger Shamrock II. She was the first vessel to win the trophy twice in a row.
