As a retired professional Master mariner, and collector myself, it is difficult to understand why there is such a wide disparity in quality on internet. Many models are sold at give away prices, and when you look at them closely, they are not true to the original and are mostly of foreign vessels. We have changeD that by providing high quality models of boats best known and loved by American sailors at a reasonable price that will give you lasting enjoyment, and pride of ownership.
 
Please don't confuse our models with others you see on the internet. All MODELS are NOT CREATED EQUAL. There is no comparison to our replicas at near this price. Before you buy, make sure to look at all  photographs carefully. Ours will show a model of unparalleled quality and faithfulness to the original builder's plans. Give-always are the rake of the masts, the proportions of the hull, and the cut of the bow. How the sails are made and fit. If you're in doubt, email us!
 
OUR GUARANTEE OF SATISFACTION: If not completely satisfied with your purchase it may be returned, if without damage, within three days of receipt in its original packaging. Return items must be insured for their full value. A prior email authorization by us for the return is required. Unfortunately, no refund can be made for the cost of shipping, packaging and handling.
 
HISTORY OF CLASS:  J Class yachts were always on a grand scale, huge spreads of canvas on hulls of 120 feet or more, large crew numbers of up to 35, and most of all multi-millionaires able to afford them. It is this class of boat that epitomizes the peak of yachting competitiveness - racing for The America's Cup.

The class came into being with the creation of the Universal Rule in 1920 for building classes that would be similar in length, sail area and hull shape to produce seaworthy boats that could race without complicated handicapping. Waterline length was to be between 76 and 87 feet with controlled scantlings and sail area to suit the rule. Only 10 boats were purpose built to the rule, 6 in the USA and 4 in the UK. They were:-

USA: Enterprise, Whirlwind, Waitamoe, Yankee, Rainbow, Ranger

UK: Shamrock V, Velsheda, Endeavour, Endeavour II

Others converted to the J Rule were: Vanitie, Resolute, White Heather, Britannia, Astra, Candida

Blue indicates the yacht is still sailing today

The launching of the class coincided with the 1929 Wall Street crash and following Depression which initially did not effect the millionaire owners such as Sir Thomas Lipton, Tom. Sopwith or Harold Vanderbilt but the change in the economic climate and World War II would spell the end of these mighty racing machines

The first match for The America's Cup in J Class was between Enterprise and Shamrock V (Lipton) in 1930. Enterprise was technically superior to Shamrock, the hull was developed through scale models and tank testing and sail design developed in a wind tunnel by the designer Starling Burgess who had an aviation background and training in aerodynamics. The adjustable "Park Avenue " boom was first seen on this boat - the draught of the sail could be controlled by slides across the wide base of the boom.

The next match in 1934 was between Endeavour and the defender, Rainbow. Rainbow was a light weather boat and Endeavour came close to lifting the Cup, a vital tactical error by Sopwith lost them a "certain" 3rd race. (He did not cover the boat behind !) The 1937 challenge was with Endeavour II against the Olin Stevens designed Ranger which again proved superior in all departments. This was the last match of the J Class for the "auld Mug". Ranger was broken up for the War effort but Shamrock, Endeavour and Velsheda survived the war on mud births and all have been refurbished at great cost and today sail in major regattas around the world. Both Endeavour and Velsheda were at Auckland during the America's Cup series. (Courtesy of the J Class Model Racing Association)

Length:  32 in
Beam:      5 1/4  in
