This is a vintage, antique model "J" class yacht that we have recently acquired and completely restored.
This 1950's yacht is in excellent condition. The boat measures 43"H X 44 3/4”L X 6"W.
This large yacht is complemented by brass and copper railings both port and starboard sides and has additional brass accents throughout the boat. The hull and keel are painted in matt black and the deck is stained with a maple finish. A beautiful combination of style and quality throughout the boat. The construction is plank on frame.
The masts are original, in excellent condition and the rigging is new. The base stand is black and we have felted the bottom in a high quality red felting.
This fine, museum quality yacht will appreciate in value. A great conversation piece which will look outstanding in any room. A great gift for the person who is difficult to buy for and appreciates the nautical life and the ocean.
As with most of our quality yachts, we will ship to you partially disassembled for safe shipping. Just connect the main mast and tighten the rigging and you are all set to enjoy!
We will include directions for assembly and we will email you pictures.
