The centerpiece of the drive-up circle is the historic anchor from the Prinz  (Prins) Valdemar, formerly a three-masted Danish cadet training ship built in 1892 of good English iron at Helsignor, Denmark.  Before World War I, German businessmen purchased the Prinz Valdemar, which was used during the war to run iron ore to Germany and later in the gun running and coconut trades.  On January 25, 1926 after being converted to a floating hotel, the Prinz Valdemar capsized on what was to become Watson Island, and effectively blocked Miami Harbor.  After that, the Prinz Valdemar lived out the remainder of her life as an aquarium, across Biscayne Boulevard from the Miami News Building (now the Freedom Tower).  Eventually, she rusted through and was scrapped in the mid-1950s.  After the Miami Yacht Club moved to Watson Island in 1947, Commodore Jack Wirt bought one of the Prinz Valdemar's two large anchors for scrap metal, and the Members brought the anchor to her present location in the center of the circle in front of the clubhouse's main entrance.
