The Columbia Yacht, a magnificent small sailing model to be displayed as a home or office décor, was an impressive American’s Cup Defender. Built for speed as well as beauty, the Colombia was created in 1958 by Olin Stephens.
Master craftsmen handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch using historical photographs, drawings and original plan. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. The Columbia Yacht is 100% hands built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires many hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. The Columbia yacht beauty is amazingly captured by the full sails that extends all the way up to the masthead. The hull is made of teak with painted waterline. Wooden hatches can be seen on the deck near the bow. Metal stanchions and railings can be seen around the cabin. The backstay rigging is tightly connected from the transom to the top of the mast. The main sail, jib, mast, and intricate rigging complete the definition of a true sailing boat.
Comes on a solid wood base, with metal nameplate.
The tall mast and sails are folded down for easy packaging and shipping. Assembly in minutes.
