This model yacht was also built according to scale through original plans, pictures and drawings. The hull was carefully put together using the best material to create a smooth surface on both sides. On the model yacht, you can easily locate stunning wooden parts and ornaments such as: wooden mast, wooden boom, wooden bunkers, fabric sails and detailed stitching, wooden pole and metal steering, long metal side rails, and many more amazing details. We only use highest quality wood and metal, absolutely no plastic parts are used to make this wooden model ship. This beautiful wooden model yacht is rested on a painted solid wooden stand. To enhanced value and recognition, a metal name plate embedded with “Endeavour 1934” is also provided.

Endeavour was hailed as the most beautiful J-Class yacht ever built. She was the best and most impressive sailboat that Britain ever built to race in America’s Cup series. The Endeavour had speed as well as extreme beauty. Built in 1933 by T.O.M. Sopwith, the undisputed leader of the British aircraft industry, the Endeavour possessed many new and innovative devices, including below-deck winches, new sail designs, and an improved spinnaker. Even with an amateur crew, she came closer to winning the Cup than any other challenger at that time. Endeavour was a faster yacht than her contender Rainbow. She beat Rainbow the first two races, however, the American team was a much finer crew and defeated Endeavour all next three races by out-thinking her captain. In the third race, as a direct result of Vanderbilt, the skipper of "Rainbow", failing to pull away, the yachts almost collided when the Endeavour had the right of way.

The race committee however dismissed the protest as the American rules stated the protest flag is to be flown at the time of the foul. This prompted a British writer to comment, "Britannia rules the waves, but America waives the rules." When Endeavour returned to England she continued to dominate the British racing scene until 1938 when she was laid up for the duration of World War II. Saved by Elizabeth Meyer of New Port, RI, today she is one of the most breathtaking sights on the water. To take hold of such a yacht is to experience pure power, grace, and speed.

All of our model ships and boats are handmade from scratch.

They are built by very skillful and experienced craftsmen. They are also built according to the scale of the original full sized ships. We do this through the use of original plans or pictures and use a plank on frame construction method. The hull of our ships are joined by multiple pieces of dry thin wood.

Inside of the hull, we use a special glue that is imported just for this purpose. The glue makes the wood strips stay close together so that they will not split, crack or twist which can happen due to weather changes or humidity changes.

Our models are built completely for raw materials, NOT kits. We recommend that you purchase a display stand for each ship that you purchase to protect it from harm.
