FAMOUS ROYAL YACHT BRITANNIA 1892

 

Museum Quality
 
 
Presented is a magnificently made model of one of England most classic racing yachts owned by royalty her entire career. The craftsman who built this model executed an exceptional work of maritime art that is meticulous in all respects. It is fittingly called "MUSEUM QUALITY". This Britannia, which is the first English ship of that name was a racing yacht that was commissioned by the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII in 1892. Cunard Line's first steamship was also named the Britannia, and of course until recently retired, her majesty Queen Elizabeth's British Yacht of State carried that name. All royal yachts would be more properly designated HMY BRITANNIA. 
 
The originalBritannia’ was ordered in 1892 by the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, and after his death owned by George V. Built on the Clyde, of wood on steel frames, the vessel was launched in 1893 and enjoyed success in its early racing years.  
 
This model is from the same source as those sold by a well known gallery that specializes in ship models for considerably more money. It is exact in its design and equal in the quality of the workmanship. All the customary gear and equipment is in place and carefully replicated.  
By comparison to other models this is LARGE at 45" overall and 47 1/2" high. (base to the top of mast)  
 
                          Quarter deck
    Midships, teak laid deck and houses
                        Bow details
                             Beautifully shaped hull

This single masted gaff rigged model with boomed top sail has the original's royal blue hull with white boot top and maroon bottom paint. Her decks are hand laid teak.
 

It features a gaff rig main, three jibs, a foresail, mainsail, topsail. The running rigging, including lazy jacks, and carefully stitched sails with reef points, is all authentic and makes this an incomparable model. The deckhouse, and wood decks and cap rail are varnished. 
 
DIMENSIONS:
 
Model LOA 45" L  x 7" W x 47 1/2" H                Estimated Weight 20 pounds
 
BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FIRST BRITANNIA: As stated in the second paragraph, ‘Britannia’ was ordered in 1892 by the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, and after his death owned by George V.
 
She was built on the Clyde, of wood on steel frames, the vessel was launched in 1893 and enjoyed success in its early racing years. In 1897, the Prince sold it, only to buy it back four years later and fit it out for cruising only.
 
In 1921, the new owner, George V, refitted it out for racing, and for the first few seasons was able to duplicate its earlier successes. However, as the years progressed ‘Britannia’ became increasingly unable to hold its own against the more modern rigged J-class yachts. Although fitted out with a Bermudan rig in 1931, it was still unable to match the newer yachts and was withdrawn from racing in 1935.
 
After George V’s death in 1936, it was towed out into the English Channel and sunk in deep water off the Isle of Wight, in accordance with his dying wishes.
