FAMOUS FISHING SMACK "EMMA C. BERRY"
One of Mystic Seaports most admired vessels
 
 
 
Completely Finished & Display Ready
We proudly introduce the second in our Mystic Seaport Collection of "table top" models with more to follow.
 
 
 
MODEL DIMENSIONS: 14 7/8" L x 19 3/4" H x 3 5/8" W      WEIGHT 5 lbs

 
Presented is the Noank fishing smack EMMA C. BERRY, that was built in the R & J Palmer shipyard in Noank, Connecticut in 1866 making her one of the oldest sailing vessels still in operation. She fished the local waters of Long Island Sound for twenty years before she was re-rigged as a schooner in 1886 to make her easier to handle. Shortly thereafter, she relocated to Maine waters and operated as a fishing vessel until 1924 when she left on the Beals Island flats to rot. In 1926 Milton Beal bought her for use as a coastal freighter, sailing between Maine, and Gloucester, Massachusetts. In 1931 she was restored as a yacht by F. Slade Dale, who donated the BERRY to Mystic Seaport in 1969. There the BERRY underwent another restoration, and was returned to her original rig as a smack. She was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1995.
 

MODEL'S CONSTRUCTION: She is built using new procedures and materials to replicate in the tiniest detail all the things that make up an accurate recreation of this outstanding quality. These include a plank on frame hull finished in multiple coats flat enamel and varnished brightwork. Her decks are detailed with a proper windlass, hatches and grating and her trunk cabin duplicates the original. Her standing and running rigging, blocks, deadeyes, ground tackle, Sampson posts, shielded running lights, and all sorts of deck hardware and fittings are accurately portrayed to the last detail.
 
The Mystic Seaport Collection sets a new standard for models whose size is perfect for display on a desk or table top. They are detailed reproductions of the famous American designed vessels for which we are noted as the source. She is a welcomed addition to our collection, and yours.
The EMMA C. BERRY makes an incomparable addition to your collection of Mystic Seaport's fleet of models and will be a perfect addition to your home, den or office.
In addition to the EMMA C. BERRY, SABINO and BRILLIANT in this collection, we will be introducing the L. A. Dutton, and the Charles W. Morgan. All are built to scale using Mystic Seaport Museum's archived plans, all are roughly proportionate in size to the originals and will display well together. They are licensed reproductions so your satisfaction is assured and made iron clad by our guarantee of personal satisfaction.

If you've been browsing through all the boat models offered on eBay, you will be hard pressed to find something that represents boats that are North American in design, and are executed as finely overall. You can spend a lot more money for so called "museum quality" detailing, but you can get the same satisfaction from our new line of moderately priced,  high quality models.
As a retired professional Master mariner, we take pride in offering high quality models of boats known and loved by American sailors at a reasonable price that will give you lasting enjoyment, and pride of ownership. Therefore, 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, fit of the sails, the proportions of the hull, and the cut of the bow. If you're in doubt, email us!

   Cargo hatches and grating

EMMA C. BERRY'S HISTORY:

One of the oldest surviving commercial vessels in America, the EMMA C. BERRY slid down the ways in June 1866 into the Mystic River at Noank, two miles south of Mystic at the mouth of the river. Built at the R & J Palmer shipyard by James A. Latham, the BERRY was designed to the specifications of a Noank "smack"--an able craft well-known from Maine to the Caribbean. Captain John Henry Berry of Noank got what he asked for: a sloop rig carrying a large mainsail, two headsails and, for light weather, a gaff topsail. The vessel was equipped with a well for storage of the catch, the well being a truncated pyramidal construction amidships into which water flowed through numerous holes in the bottom hull planking, keeping the catch alive for delivery to the markets. Berry named the smack for his daughter.

Rerigged as a schooner in 1886, taken to Maine in 1894, and fitted with a Knox gasoline engine in about 1916, the BERRY was an active fisherman until 1924, when her days seemed to be ended and she was left on the flats at Beals Island. In 1926 Milton Beal bought her for use as a coastal freighter, sailing between Jonesport, Rockland, and Portland, Maine, and Gloucester, Massachusetts. In 1931 she was found and restored by wooden-boat enthusiast F. Slade Dale, a New Jersey yacht basin owner, who, in 1969, donated the BERRY to Mystic Seaport. She was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1995.
