DISCONTINUED APRIL, 2011
 
LIGHTNING CLASS ONE DESIGN RACER
One of the oldest and largest racing and day sailing sailboat class worldwide
 
 
 
Completely Finished & Accurately Rigged
Here's another great boat model that you will be proud to own. It is the long lived LIGHTNING, a design that has been in continuous production since 1938 with a large worldwide following.

MODEL DIMENSIONS: 19" LOD x 34" H x 6 3/4" W    Shipping weight  7 lbs
 
BLUE HULL LIGHTNING PRICE DISCONTINUED
FLAT RATE SHIPPING to 48 contiguous States $0.00


I grew up racing these boats in the Chicago area, crewing for some outstanding skippers, so I am especially pleased to offer this model of the well loved and respected LIGHTNING One Design Class of racing sailboats. It was designed by Olin Stephens of Sparkman and Stephens in 1938. The first fleet was established at the Skaneateles Lake Yacht Club in New York state. Since then, more than 15,000 Lightning's have been built and actively raced in 500 Fleets worldwide.

The model has an accurately shaped hull built using the same method as the real boats and finished in glistening enamel, with varnished trim. They are Marconi rigged with jib and main. The running rigging, is authentic to the last detail. She makes an incomparable model and will be a perfect addition to your home, den or office.
 
The class has international status and is sailed in thirteen countries which is administered by one of the largest one design sailing associations. A World Championship is held every two years. North American, South American and European Championships are held each year as are innumerable regional and District championships. The International Lightning Class Association (ILCA) protects the boat's design and licenses custom and private builders to build boats under its administration. There is room for four adults or a family to day sail, but a crew of three is used when racing.

The Lightning's rig is simple, but offers sophisticated sail shape controls. The hull features a unique hard chine design that combines the stability that provides sail-carrying power, with flat bottom sections that promote planing. It's hard chine and 130 pound centerboard give her the stability and power of a small keel boat going to windward in strong winds.

LIGHTNING CLASS DIMENSIONS:

LOA"  Beam 6'6"  Draft board down 4'11"  With the board up 5"
Mast height 26' 2" Working sail area 177 sq feet  Weight 700 pounds

In 1963, the Rules Committee allowed for hulls to be made from fiberglass. But our preference is to celebrate the original design. Consequently, we are offering a dark Blue colored wood hulled model.

 
                                                  Only available in Blue
MODEL'S CONSTRUCTION: They are built the old fashioned way, one plank at a time, and hand finished. Every feature of the real boats are exactly reproduced,, and the result is a model of unsurpassed beauty and quality. You will find the tiniest detail of all the things that make up a sailboat of this outstanding quality are featured in these models.
 
Special features of the wood version include:
      • Hand planked hull over frames
      • Finished in seven coats of hand rubbed enamel
      • Varnished brightwork.
      • Varnished wood floor boards and thwarts
      • Sails pre-hanked to spar
      • Class symbol on mainsail
      • Accurate standing and running rigging
      • Movable tiller and rudder
      • Interior ribs
      • And more 
MINOR ASSEMBLY REQUIRED: To save cost, this model is shipped with its mast down. All rigging and the sails are pre-attached simplifying the rigging process. For most people, it is a simple affair to step the mast and attach the stays and shrouds. They are pre-measured and hook in place. Detailed instructions are furnished, but if in the rare instance you have a problem, email or call us for guidance. 
 
 
 
 
If you've been browsing through all the boat models offered on the internet, 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.
OUR FLEET OF MODERATE COST QUALITY MODELS: Don't forget that in addition to the just launched LIGHTNING Class, we are the source for full hull models of the Schooners Adventuress, America, two sizes of Schooner Bluenose, the schooner Gertrude L. Thebaud, Chesapeake Bay Skipjack, the much admired Herreshoff 12.5, the New York 30 and the famous "S" Boat. A Friendship sloop, and S&S's Odyssey and the IOD Class in four colors. And, the Marshall Sanderling and Beetle catboats. Our collection of J Class includes Rainbow, Endeavour, Enterprise, Shamrock, each as full models or half hulls. In motorboats, we offer Chris Craft's Barrel Back, 1942 Twin Cockpit runabout, a Triple Cockpit runabout, and the 17 foot Utility. In other motor vessels we have the GarWood Speedster, a classic 1920 motor yacht, a lobster boat, and a 1926 Dreamboat.
