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.
This model ship is shipped fully assembled, you just need to stand the masts and she is ready to be displayed.
The model ship sits perfectly on the included base, which is made of a high-quality, conditioned wood, and has a brass name plate.
The highest quality, rare woods (including Ebony, Rosewood, Blackwood, Mahogany, Jack wood, and Sycamore) used to construct our models are subjected to specific seasoning procedures to ensure that the model will withstand severe climate and never warp or split. Extensive research is required to build each model according to scale, using various pictures, original plans, drawings, and digital imaging. The America's Cup is the most famous and most prestigious regatta in the sport of sailing, and the oldest active trophy in international sport, predating the FA Cup by two decades and the Modern Olympics by 45 years.
The regatta's origins date back to August 22, 1851 when the 30.86 m schooner-yacht America, owned by a syndicate that represented the New York Yacht Club, raced 15 yachts representing the Royal Yacht Squadron around the Isle of Wight.


The crew donated their trophy to the New York Yacht Club, under the condition that the cup "be preserved as a perpetual Challenge Cup for friendly competition between foreign countries," and the America's Cup race was born. From 1870, the next time the race was held, until 1980, American yachts won the America's Cup race 24 times without a loss (the race is held irregularly). 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.
The America Yacht model is built from scratch by experienced master craftsman and is not from any sort of kit. Ornaments and decorations on this model (which may include, portholes, anchors, muskets, and other details) are sculpted of brass, chrome, and other metals. Each model ship is examined during various stages of manufacturing and shipping to ensure the highest quality and accuracy possible for your investment.
British businessmen had contacted some American counterparts suggesting that an American pilot boat be sent over as a display, for these ships had a reputation for being very fast. The sport attracts top sailors and yacht designers because of its long history and prestige as the "Holy Grail" of yachting. What they did with the trophy instead laid the foundation for what has become the longest contested trophy in international sport. 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.
To create the subtle details and definitions of the deck and hull, the plank on frame method of construction is used, which requires hundreds of hours of pain-staking, detailed work.


The Commodore and members of the New York Yacht Club formed a syndicate set out to build "the fastest yacht afloat" George Steers was chosen as the ship designer, and William Brown the builder (both renown).
Although the most salient aspect of the regatta is its yacht races, it is also a test of boat design, sail design, fundraising, and managing people. Although Americans regained the cup in the next race (in 1987), non-American challengers have won the cup three times since 1983.
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. New Zealand just became the first non-American club to successfully defend the Cup with its victory in America's Cup 2000. 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 detailed riggings and lining are painstakingly fastened by hand and also made of linen.
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. The use of cotton sails was not a new idea, but the sails that America went up against were mostly made of flax, flax had a practical advantage over cotton.
Three years later, in 1945, the remains of the shed and the ship were finally scrapped and burned.
