1934 AMERICA’S CUP UK CHALLENGER

In 1934 the schooner Endeavour staked a claim on the America’s Cup, winning the first two races. The third regatta was bound to be the most exciting. Unfortunately fate played an unkind trick to Sir Thomas Sopwith, who failed and thus couldn’t win the America’s Cup. The Rainbow won with a few seconds lead over the Endeavour.

Wooden model ship kit includes limewood and mahogany strips for hull planking. Mahogany deck house, wooden skylights and hatches and are all laser cut. Pre-finished wood, cast metal and brass fittings plus photo-etched details replicate original equipment. Pure white Dacron sail cloth and wooden display stand completes this magnificent J-Class Sailboat kit.

Length 46″/ Height 59.5″/ Scale 1:35

Historical Information

"The J-Class was specifically designed in the 1930's to compete in the America's Cup. Just 10 yachts on the class were built, considering that the costs of both construction and maintenance were extremely high. The designation ""J"" refers to the sail plan, displacement, length and mast height.
The challenger in the 1934 America's Cup was Endeavour, designed by Charles Nicholson. This great naval architect produced on of the most beautiful J's and his sail plan was truly innovative."
