Mid-Century Scale 12 Meter Racing Yacht was scaled down from the real thing~ racing yachts designed to compete for the America's Cup, a prize coveted by sailors since it was first awarded.  The America's Cup is the oldest international sporting trophy. The ewer trophy was originally awarded in 1851 by the Royal Yacht Squadron for a race around the Isle of Wight in England, which was won by the schooner America, much to the consternation of the highbrow yachtsmen of England at the time!   This scale model was actually designed to sail, not just decorate the room, and features a weighted keel, dacron sails, and a stand so that the seaman in your family can display it with pride!

Circa 1960s

Measures 88H x 47W x 15.5D (on stand)
