The caption for this photo at the Grosse Pointe (Michigan) Historical Society is “The David C. Whitney Yacht ‘Sumar’ named after Susan Marshall Whitney.”
Photo source: http://www.gphistorical.org/whitney.html
The yacht Sumar was commissioned by David C. Whitney (1865-1942) of Grosse Point, Detroit Michigan and named for his wife Susan Marshall. It was built of steel by the Todd Shipyards Corporation in Brooklyn NY, the same yard as the Gannett was built, except it was built by their Tebo Yacht Basin subsidiary.
The vessel was 160 feet long and propulsion was twin diesel engines which turned two propellers and produced 13 knots. The naval architect was Henry J. Gielow. Her beam was 26 feet and tonnage 319. The engines were built by Cooper-Bessemer and developed 420 horsepower. The vessel was manned by a crew of 21. In 1927 her captain was B. Madsen and in May she was in transit from Manila to Colombo Sri Lanka via Singapore.
Built in 1926, by April 1931 the Sumar had logged 85,000 nautical miles of cruising, including a circumnavigation of the planet. She ranged from the east and west coasts of the Americas, the Mediterranean and Black Seas, the British Isles, Scandinavia, and the Caribbean. The first part of her route took her to Port of Spain, Rio, Montevideo, then to Hammerfest Norway. Her captain in 1930 was Barney, who had skippered the British war prize Germania and been responsible for 104 idle Hog Island-built ships for two years.

My Great Grandfather was Barney Madsen. He captained this ship I believe for the Whitney family.
