Own a piece of yachting history and have it displayed beautifully as a home or office decor, with this large 48.5 inch high Shamrock Yacht L of the J Class, a classic sailing yacht model that is entirely built from wood. Master craftsmen handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch using historical photographs, drawings and original plans. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. Each sailboat is 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and is similar to the building of actual ships.
Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. The sails are hand stitched and rigged intricately from the masthead to the wooden deck, which is made of wood planks that are carefully pieced symmetrically for a beautiful finish. One can locate the wooden cabin and companionway around the middle of the deck. The metal steering wheel can be seen right above the rudder. The waterline is inlaid into the hull giving it a simplistic beautiful contrast. The stitched sail and intricate rigging complete the definition of a true sailing boat.
The model is secured tightly on a solid wood base with a brass nameplate.
The tall mast and sails are folded down for easy packaging and shipping. Assembly in minutes.
