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 started to change that by providing 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.
 
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. If you're in doubt, email us!

PARTIAL HISTORY OF ENDEAVOUR: Aircraft magnet, Thomas J. Sopwith's challenger for the 1934 America's Cup was Endeavour. She was designer Charles Nicholson's third J-Class and he said of her before he designed her that: "She will have quite a normal hull... because I have thought it right to suppress possible experimental form, which would be most interesting to try out, but which I have to leave to American designers." He did, however, produce the most beautiful J-Class and her rig was innovative. Sopwith experimented with new running backstay strain gauges which controlled the trim of the mast and used electronic wind speed and direction indicators. It has since been suggested that part of the reason for her failure in the Cup was due to all the gadgets on board. She was matched 83ft 3in on the waterline against Rainbow's 82ft (25.3 & 25m). However, despite being thought to be the best challenger Britain has ever built, she did not win the Cup. Rainbow, which was considered the inferior boat, beat her by four races to two.
 
Rainbow was designed by W Starling Burgess and launched in 1934 from the Herreshoff yard where she was built in just 100 days. The J stepped a pear-shaped duralumin mast, designed to take the strain of the double-headed jib — first used on Whirlwind — and she was originally rigged with a Park Avenue boom. This was later removed because it was considered too heavy.
 
Elizabeth Meyer of Newport, RI bought Endeavour in 1984 and supervised her restoration. Since her re-launching in 1989, Endeavour, now in the luxury charter trade, has sailed over 100,000 miles and hosted more than 3,000 guests in comfort and safety. She has cruised the waters of Europe, the Mediterranean, the West Indies, the United States and Canada and has taken part in many regattas, sailing against modern boats as well as classics. Despite her 64 years, Endeavour continues true to form in her effortless domination of the Classic Racing Circuit. The last 20 years, or so, have seen a huge resurgence of interest in the J-Class. Today Shamrock V, Velsheda and Endeavour are still sailing and a replica Js, Ranger has recently been launched
