The American sloop Puritan of 1885

The yacht Puritan was built at the George Lawley & Son yard in Boston, Massachusetts and launched May 26, 1885. It was built and skippered by John Malcolm Forbes. The ship was equipped with a movable centerboard keel.

In 1885 she defeated the New York club's Priscilla then went on to defend the America's Cup against the British yacht Genesta, a traditional cutter.

There are several fine photos of her from that time: photo_1, photo_2, photo_3, photo_4.


The Puritan model, photos, description and dimensions

The model's hull is made from mahogany planks, a wonderful piece of work. The sails are set like close to the wind on port tack, one can easily imagine the force of the wind in the rigging. This impression is enhanced by giving the model a slight listing to lee.

There are several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!

This very beautiful model is a masterpiece. It is 1 : 50 scale. Length is 88 cm, width 18 cm, height 94 cm. The ship can be taken out of the stand, e.g. for transport.
