Presented is the "S"-Class Boat, a displacement boat that is quick in light air, stiff in
a breeze, and remarkably agile in response to her helm. She is powered by a five-eighths rig consisting of a self-tending
jib, a main, and a spinnaker. The cockpit provides unusually ample working space for a one-design racer; it is moderately
deep, comfortable, and relatively dry. The cabin provides shelter from foul weather, storage and space for a portable head
if desired. Most were produced between 1919 and 1941 by the world famous Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in Bristol, Rhode
Island; designed and supervised by "Captain Nat" Herreshoff - the Wizard of Bristol.
This model was made from scratch and took hundreds of hours
to build!!! It is painstakingly built by hand one plank at a time. As you can see from the pictures above, this model took
tremendous skill, is highly detailed, and finished in eight coats of glistening hand rubbed enamel.

by skilled craftsmen, plank on frame just like the original and has been approved by the Herreshoff museum. The model is faithful
to the original in all details with a scale of 1" equals 1". At each step along the way, all operations are painstakingly
done by hand including a finely finished hull in paint, varnish trim and painted canvas deck covering. It's high detailing
and intricate construction has set a new standard for a quality reproduction at a very reasonable price. She will make a treasured
addition to any collection or décor, and likely increase in value over time as like all our models, the "S" boat is truly
