Assembly of the sails only is required. Due to the fact that these models are made by hand some of the deck pieces will vary
A pond yacht of the 1930's. Plank-on-frame construction, weighted keel, deck made of actual wood strips. Overall brass fittings. A typical pond yacht mahogany hatch to allow more ballast, or even radio control gear. Cotton main and jibs with detailed stitching. A truly beautiful ship, always in high demand.
Bermuda Sloop Pond Racer, Large - Authentic Models
Part # AS103F
In the 1930s they were available to the very rich. Few were made; even fewer have survived use and neglect. Their hulls were built from plank on frame construction, then brightly finished. The bottom of the-keel was fitted with ballast. The mahogany deck is inlaid with strips of darker wood. The bowsprit runs through a brass tube, and the jib is attached to a brass traveler bar; an oval deck cut-out carries a mahogany hatch cover. Quadrant steering gear, chain plates, mast and round wood hardware. Too much to name, brass spreaders, gooseneck, many other details. Hand stitched sails. A similar model recently fetched in excess of $6,000 at a Sotheby's London auction. Our reproduction is exact to the smallest detail, and only needs some extra coatings of varnish and a light breeze to sail in the local pond. Check the cost. No, it's not a mistake...
