See our post featuring artist John T. McCoy’s rendering of the Dixie Clipper here.
This flying boat, manufactured by the Short Brothers and called the Cavalier (each individual plane was given a name that started with “C”) carried passengers between Long Island and Bermuda in the late 1930s until it was lost January 21, 1939 en route to Bermuda. There were 10 survivors and 3 fatalities.

The Dornier Do X was the largest and bulkiest flying boat at the time of its production in 1929. For other impressive views of this aircraft see the photos at Airliners.net or a scale model of the plane at Hobbylinc.com.
