The US Warships were a fairly new breed that introduced many new innovations in the 1800’s. The Harvey exemplified this class of roving privateers, overtaking and capturing British merchantmen laden with cargo to support the British expeditionary forces then attempting to recapture the former colonies. The Baltimore Clipper is one of the best known sailing vessels in existence today, with its rakish silhouette distinctive from a distance. Originally known as a Virginia-built boat, the fast and lean craft that was built at Fells Point and other locations evolved over time, emphasizing speed, weatherly sailing abilities, and handling over everything else. Influenced by the French luggers and their refined construction methods, as well as the deep and powerful Bermuda sloops with their incredible windward abilities, the early Baltimore Clippers were used by the American navy during the Revolution with great success.
The slave trade became the new calling for the Baltimore Clipper after the War of 1812 left a number of privateers partially-built with no owners in sight. As a slaver, the Baltimore Clipper was built to sail as well as it could in the weather conditions of the slaving routes with the amount of weight usually carried, with speed emphasized over all. It was this extreme nature that spelled the end for the Baltimore Clipper as a commercial vessel. The design underwent a revival during the 1970s, with a replica built to the lines of Chasseur, one of the largest and most successful of the Baltimore Clippers, a ship that, during the War of 1812, claimed to hold all of England under blockade. Other topsail schooners built along Baltimore Clipper lines were Lynx and Amistad, and Californian on the western coast.

Six weeks after her initial launch the Flying Cloud made headlines around the world with her record setting sail from New York to San Francisco in 89 days, 21 hours.
While there were a few other ships that were capable of such blazing speeds, only two stand out as to be considered in the same league as the Flying Cloud. This highly collectible full-hull (not waterline) display model ship has an approximate retail value of $1000, but we are making it available for a whole lot less! Lightly gunned Frigates such as the Constitution, Constellation and Essex proved they were able to outclass the huge lumbering British warships with their speed and maneuverability. The Harvey was also used during the California gold rush, when it ran blockades and transported valuable cargo from New York to San Francisco. The Baltimore Clipper has been involved in privateering, piracy, smuggling, slave trading, and there are a number of modernized Clippers sailing today on both coasts of America. A Baltimore Clipper type can best be defined by extremely tall and raking masts, very little rigging, low freeboard, great rake at both the stem and stern, with the keel featuring a great amount of drag from front to rear. They were so far in advance of their times that there was no comparison with other vessels of the same time.
Over time the hullform became more and more evolved, with a finer entry and more powerful midsections.
Because the design had evolved so far during the war, it was now incapable of carrying bulk cargo in any large amount, rendering it useless as a freighter. The interior of the hull was obviously different, now specialized for slaving, while the hull went through an increase of deadrise, draft, sharper waterlines for more speed, larger masts and yards for more sail area, and lighter weight. With no wars calling for privateers, and the slave trade forbidden, the Baltimore Clipper had no usefulness. The original Pride of Baltimore was a successful ship, but she met a tragic end in 1986 during a white squall. Howard Chapelle theorized that built to modern standards, with intelligent use of ballast and sail cutting, the Baltimore Clipper type would create a modern yacht of incredible speed and seaworthiness.

The clipper Andrew Jackson made the New York to San Francisco journey in 89 days and 4 hours, though after waiting all night to be brought to dock the record was not considered. John's, Newfoundland, later sold, stripped for whatever valuable metal could be found, and burned.
The Harvey - Baltimore Clipper model ship sits perfectly on the included large polished wood base. Whenever the Royal Navy managed to capture a Clipper, the Royal Surveyors would take their lines off for study and use them in building the Royal Navy's series of experimental brigs. The rig evolved as well, with the basic design being a two-masted topsail schooner able to spread a massive amount of sail, with her rigging supported primarily by her massive bowsprit and bobstay. However, because of the pressure on nations to stop the slave trade, it was no longer possible to use large vessels for slaving, as they were too easy to catch and took too long to gather enough slaves for a full cargo.


Because the Baltimore Clipper was no longer the pursuer in engagements, she became specialized for sailing under the most favorable of conditions, and more extreme in form and execution.
A modern rendition of the Baltimore Clipper type was commissioned, and the Pride of Baltimore II was born, using current wood boat-building techniques.

In addition to her breathtaking speed on these journeys, the Flying Cloud was significant in that her navigator was Eleanor Creesy, wife of Captain Creesy. Your friends, colleagues, or maybe even your former shipmates, come in and marvel as they admire your (latest) acquisition, wondering aloud how expensive this RARE and valuable model ship is. In 1925, the Regia Marina ordered two school ships to be built following a design by Lieutenant Colonel Francesco Rotundi of the Italian Navy Engineering Corps, inspired by the style of large late 18th century 74-cannon ships of the line. The Harvey - Baltimore Clipper tall ship model is built from scratch using over 1000 pieces made of the finest materials by experienced master artisans.
They had a decent amount of beam for their length and were flush-decked for easy handling of guns and sails. A few were used in the opium trade, and most of the Baltimore Clipper traits influenced the design of pilot boat schooners and other fast vessels.
She is still sailing today, although it must be noted that she suffered a partial dismasting at one point when her bobstay snapped, letting her bowsprit break which caused the foremast to go by the board. Despite departing New York a full two days ahead of the Flying Cloud, the Hornet arrived a mere 45 minutes earlier than her nemesis.
The first of these two ships, the Cristoforo Colombo, was put into service in 1928 and was used by the Italian Navy until 1943.
Under auxiliary diesel-electric propulsion power, the Amerigo Vespucci reaches a top speed of 10 knots and has an autonomy of 5450 nm (at 6.5 knots). Running with the wind blowing from behind, the sails would press the Baltimore Clipper's bow down farther and farther. It was found that slaves did not strain or stress the hull as a bulk cargo would, and the ship type launched forth on another evolutionary cycle.
Many people who build modelling ships employment kits or plans to make their Took just about 4 months to build but much of the wreak was done.
After World War II, this ship was handed over to the USSR as part of the war reparations and was shortly afterwards decommissioned. With her sharp lines forward the bow wouldn't provide enough buoyancy to counteract the force of the sails, and the ship would be driven bodily under. The Amerigo Vespucci in the harbor of New York, 1976 The second ship of the design was the Amerigo Vespucci. There was a recorded incident in the Royal Navy of an experimental brig built along Baltimore Clipper lines that pitchpoled (capsized end over end) while running in a gale.
