America, 1851 Yacht – BlueJacket Ship Model Kit #1050
The yacht that started it all in 1851! After being launched in New York, in 1851, the yacht AMERICA crossed the Atlantic to challenge the entire fleet of England’s Royal Yacht Squadron. Winning, she was awarded a silver trophy that was to become known as the America’s Cup, the most cherished prize in the world of sailing.
BlueJacket’s kit, for advanced builders, allows the modeler to satisfy his own imagination and creativity, such as omitting some of the exterior planking to display the meticulously detailed interior framework of this fine plank on frame model.
