9th Defense of America's Cup by DEFENDER 1895

This Great Model Has Been Sold.
Thank you!

BUILDER'S PRESENTATION
HALF MODEL OF AMERICA'S CUP DEFENDER of the same name vs. VALKYRIE III Dated 1895


Galley view of half model of America's Cup Defender Valkariey III image

 

Presented is a half model celebrating the ninth defense of the America's Cup Races, this time by the N.G. Herreshoff designed DEFENDER of 1895. It has the characteristics of a builder's presentation model, but was likely made by American artisans in the 1950's using old wood, and traditional methods to celebrate the 100th anniversary of this defense. This hand painted creation is a high quality work that commanded a high price, and yet would be much less than what a full model of the same size hull would cost.

The form is comprised of a single block for the hull and is painted with white topsides a royal blue boot top. The bottom is finished in light blue. It has a spoon bow and curved fore foot to the turn of the keel and then angled down to the rudder post. The 35 1/2 inch hull is mounted on a reddish painted backboard that is 1" thick and 48 1/2" long. It is finished in buff lettering with the burgees of the New York Yacht Club and the Royal Yacht Squadron finished in their respective colors.
 

Deck view of the DEFENDER Half Model

Defender was the victorious American defender of the tenth America's Cup Race in 1895 against challenger Valkyrie III. Defender was designed by Nathanael Greene Herreshoff and built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in 1895. It was Herreshoff's second victorious America's Cup defender design.

She was sloop rigged with all-metal construction: steel, aluminum, and manganese bronze resulting in a hull fraught with electrolytical problems that showed up later. It was owned by William Kissam Vanderbilt, Edwin Dennison Morgan and Charles Oliver Iselin, and skippered by Henry C. Haff.

Defender defeated the New York Yacht Club's Vigilant then went on to defend the cup against British keel cutter Valkyrie III. Following the contest, Defender was towed to the residence of C. Oliver Iselin in New Rochelle, New York where it remained docked for four years without sailing. In 1899 J. Pierpont Morgan and W. Buttler Duncan rebuilt Defender to race trials against the America's Cup defense candidate, Columbia. Following the selection trials which she did not win, Defender returned to her mooring and was finally broken up suffering from electrolysis in 1901.

PROVENANCE: Purchased at auction from an estate of fine nautical antiques.
