The sails are hand stitched and rigged intricately from the masthead to the beautiful wooden deck. One can locate the wooden cabin and companionway around the middle of the deck and the metal steering wheel can be seen right above the rudder. Between the cabins is a miniature handmade wooden lifeboat. The stitched sail and intricate rigging complete the definition of a true sailing boat.

The model is secured tightly on a solid wood base with a brass nameplate with the mast and sails folded down for safer shipping. Light assembly needed.

A little history:

Shamrock was a racing yacht built in 1898 that was the unsuccessful Irish challenger for the 10th Americas Cup in 1899 against the United States defender, Columbia. Shamrock was designed by third-generation Scottish boatbuilder, William Fife III, and built in 1898 by J. Thorneycroft & Co., at Church Wharf, Chiswick, for owner Sir Thomas Lipton of the Royal Ulster Yacht Club. She was skippered by Captain Archibald "Archie" Hogarth. She sailed to New York for the Americas Cup race in the summer of 1899. The Cup defender Columbia beat Shamrock in all three races. She returned to Britain in the autumn of 1899 and was subsequently refitted by Lipton and used as a "trial horse" to test the later challengers, Shamrock II, Shamrock III, and Shamrock IV.
