Shamrock Yacht Large - Y044
Shamrock Model Racing Yacht
The Shamrock V was launched by Sir Thomas Lipton after his fourth had lost.
For his challenger, Lipton turned once more to Charles Nicholson, who produced
a beautiful sloop. When the races started, Shamrock found herself pitted against
Enterprise. In the best-of-seven series, Enterprise won four and Shamrock failed
to score a single victory.

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.
