Designed for the discriminating sailboat enthusiast, this museum quality Limited Edition replica of the America racing yacht is a highly accurate and detailed scale model yacht. Perfectly sized to display upon any desk, bookshelf or mantle, the fine craftsmanship and classic lines of this famous sailing yacht will stir the racing spirit within. The America was designed by George Steers, a revolutionary designer who began the practice of giving ships a knife-like bow widening aft, as opposed to the previous practice of giving ships a rather blunt bow and a sharp stern. America was captained by Richard Brown, a skilled member of the Sandy Hook Pilots, a group of harbor pilots renowned worldwide for their skill in manoeuvering the shoals around New York City. John Cox Stevens and the syndicate from the New York Yacht Club owned the America from the time it was launched on May 3, 1851 until ten days after it won the regatta that made it famous.
On September 1, 1851, the yacht was sold to John de Blaquiere, 2nd Baron de Blaquiere, who raced her only a few times before selling her in 1856 to Henry Montagu Upton, 2nd Viscount Templetown, who renamed the yacht Camilla but failed to use or maintain her.
Pitcher, a shipbuilder in Gravesend, Kent, rebuilt Camilla and resold her in 1860 to Henry Edward Decie, who brought her back to the United States. She was raised, repaired and renamed America by the Union, and served on the Union side of the blockade for the remainder of the war.
The commanding presence of this model yacht inspired by the famous America racing yacht serves as the ideal centerpiece for a nautical themed den, living room, office or boardroom. Let the spirit of the wind and waves free with these impressive wooden model sailboats.


The America’s Cup is the most prestigious regatta and Match Race in the sport of sailing, and the oldest active trophy in international sport, predating the Modern Olympics by 45 years. Revell of Germany is ranked #1 in plastic model sailing ships, followed by Revell-Monogram, Heller, Lindberg, and 8 other manufacturers.
The schooner was designed by George Steers for Commodore John Cox Stevens and a syndicate from the New York Yacht Club. They were all extremely skilled racers as a result of impromptu races between pilots to ships in need of one. Decie sold the ship to the Confederate States of America the same year for use as a blockade runner in the American Civil War, with Decie remaining as captain.

On August 22, 1851, the America won by eight minutes over the Royal Yacht Squadron's 53 mile regatta around the Isle of Wight. Brown had sailed aboard a pilot boat designed by George Steers, of whom he was a personal friend. Navy until 1873, when it was sold to Benjamin Franklin Butler, a former Civil War Commander, for $5,000. Foster in 1917, and in 1921 was sold to the America Restoration Fund, who donated her to the U. Although the most salient aspect of the regatta is its yacht races, it is also a test of boat design, sail design, fundraising, and management skills. We are looking forward to forming successful business relationships with new clients around the world in the near future.


Butler used and maintained the boat well, until his death in 1893, when it was inherited by his son, Paul. The cup, originally offered as the Royal Yacht Squadron cup, is now named after the first yacht to win the trophy, the schooner America.
On August 8, 1870, the America was entered by the Navy in the America's Cup race at New York Harbor, and finished fourth.
The trophy remained in the hands of the New York Yacht Club of the United States from 1852 or 1857 (when the syndicate that won the Cup donated the trophy to the club) until 1983 when the Cup was won by the challenger, Australia II of Australia, ending the longest winning streak in the history of sport. Ames reconditioned America and used her occasionally for racing and casual sailing until 1901, when she fell into disuse and disrepair. On March 29, 1942, during a heavy snowstorm, the shed where the America was being stored collapsed.
All we want is that our good quality and service will help you to get more clients and more orders. Three years later, in 1945, the remains of the shed and the ship were finally scrapped and burned.
