This Fine Model Has Been Sold. Thank You!
 
HERRESHOFF TYPE DRAKETAIL MOTOR VESSEL MODEL HULL  Ca 1895
 

 

It comes mounted on a  Teak wood stand which displays this relic as a work of maritime art.
 
Presented is a hand crafted motor vessel hull that was made from scratch using traditional plank on frame construction. All the woodwork is put in place using the exact same materials and methods of construction as a real vessel. It is so finely made and built that it must have been made by a master shipbuilder. The hull is made by nailing a series of planks called "strakes" on steam bent frames or ribs that are mounted crosswise on the keelson with beams screwed in place across at deck level. The ribs are placed at one inch centers. The interior shows an accumulation of grit and grime again adding to look of a many years old relic. For some reason, the model was never finished. It comes from a Rochester, NY family where it was handed down for generations.
 
The torpedo stern is designed for speed, and is also called a draketail or a beavertail. The stern is very flat underneath and is wide, so the boat doesn't squat at speed. It also leaves almost no wake. L. Francis Herreshoff's 88 foot "Now Then", a steam yacht, built for Norman L. Munroe in 1887 is a good example of this style. At one time, making 24 MPH, it was the fastest boat in the world. Because the design is more costly to build and gives up space aft, the streamlined shape of the stern lost its appeal and gave way to square sterns. Today, it is most often found on the waterman's Hooper Island Draketails of the Chesapeake Bay that are used to harvest crab.
 
 
 
DIMENSIONS: 
 
Length overall 36 1/4"      Length on deck 35 1/2"      Beam 8 1/4"
Maximum depth 6 1/4"     Weight  4 lbs without stand  Stand 8 pounds
 
 
 
Buy as a work of art. It is truly a masterpiece, and makes a beautiful display. 
 
CONDITION: This is a hand made model, and is in excellent condition considering its age. The deck was never planked and a rudder was never installed in the tube. What you see is a mellowed state of aging with a great patina. The hull finish is in generally good shape. There is one cross beam just aft of the forward hatch that is broken off. In our view, this is a fine, high quality model which is a work of maritime art  that anyone will be proud to display. There is nothing more than what is pictured.
