AMERICAN BUILDER'S HALF HULL

BALL LINE PACKET "YORKSHIRE" 

BUILT 1843
 
 
 

HALF HULL MODEL BLACKBALL LINE PACKET YORKSHIRE 
PRICE $ 595.00 PLUS $20.00 SHIPPING AND HANDLING TO 48 contiguous STATES. 
 
 
Presented is a builder's model of the Ball Line packet YORKSHIRE. Here's what a 1847 newspaper ad had to say: The celebrated packet-ship Yorkshire, Captain D.G. Bailey. 1058 tons per register. The Yorkshire is, on all hands, allowed to be the finest and fastest of the numerous packets sailing between this port and New York, and her accommodations for second cabin and steerage passengers will be much superior thus voyage to what they have hitherto been, much greater space being allotted to each. Her commander, Captain Bailey, has invariably made remarkably quick passages, and his kindness and attention to passengers have secured for him a lasting reputation. For Terms of Passage apply to J and W. Robinson, 48, Waterloo road. Liverpool Mercury, May 21, 1847.

The hull is comprised of six alternating lifts of mahogany and white oak below the waterline and a single lift of mahogany above. This shows in great detail the shape of this efficient vessel. The half hull is mounted on an American oak backboard. The hull is carefully trimmed with shear strakes, rubbing strakes, and the bowsprit and trailing boards adding an additional touch of realism. The two strakes run from bow to stern. The model was made by a New England craftsman, Rob Napier, in North Chatham, MA who practiced his trade in the last half of the 20th Century.

This perspective of the hull shows her blunt ends for load carrying rather than speed and was the reason for her seaworthiness and passenger carrying ability.
 

Shipbuilder's models were often used to advertise the business of the shipbuilder and or owner at exhibitions and trade fairs.
 
DIMENSIONS:

The ship model is  18" L x 1 3/8" W x 3 3/4" H
The backboard is  31" L x 7" H x 1" D
Weight 5 pounds.

CONDITION: The half hull is in near original condition and the varnish is in excellent condition. There are some very small chips in the fine detailing of the small trim in a few places, but nothing of consequence which would distract from the overall excellence of the workmanship.
 
OUR UNCONDITIONAL GUARANTEE: If not completely satisfied with your purchase it may be returned, if without damage, within three days of receipt in its original condition and packaging. Returns must be insured for their full value. All that is required is a prior email authorization by us for the return.

BRIEF HISTORY: The U.S. ship YORKSHIRE was built at New York by William H. Webb (hull #13), and launched on 25 October 1843. 996 tons; 167 ft x 36 ft 6 in x 21 ft (length x beam x depth of hold); two decks; draft loaded 18 ft 3 in.

The YORKSHIRE was the second ship Webb built for C. H. Marshall & Co's Black Ball Line of sailing packets between New York and Liverpool, and the fastest sailing packet that ever served on the North Atlantic: during her 18-year packet career her westbound passages averaged 29 days, her shortest passage being an incredible 15 1/2 days (sailed from Liverpool 2 November 1846, 7 days to the banks, arrived at Sandy Hook, night of 17 November, and at New York, noon 18 November), her longest 58 days. Her early reputation for speed was probably enhanced by the reputation of her first master, David G. Bailey, of whom the New York Herald wrote on the eve of the YORKSHIRE'S maiden voyage

It is a common remark among the sharks when Captain B. goes to sea, that 'it is useless to attempt to follow that ship, for Bailey is on board of her.' Such is his reputation for speed even among the inhabitants of the deep.

On 2 February 1862, the YORKSHIRE, under the command of Edward R. Fairbanks, sailed from New York for Liverpool, with three passengers and a crew of 23; she was never heard from again. It was stated at the time that "probably no ship in the Liverpool trade has realized a larger amount of net earnings".
