The Columbia is an America’s Cup yacht and winner of the America’s Cup of 1958. The yacht was specially developed for this event.
Olin J. Stephens brought all his knowledge and extensive knowledge into the development of this yacht. Columbia was built at the Nevin shipyard. She was 12 meters long, had a wooden hull and could reach very high speeds. The skipper Briggs Cunningham led Columbia to victory in 1958.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “Columbia”
This model is 100 % hand made and crafted with great precision.
Exotic woods, such as teak, mahogany, rosewood or mango are being used, which result in precious, decorative and exclusive models as an end product. The hull is being sanded down carefully after completion, and if required, painted with clear coating material.
Ornaments and embellishments (for example canons, bull’s-eyes, anchor, dials or wheels et cetera) are made out of brass, chrome and other high-quality metals.
The sails are either out of cloth or silk, the mast is made out of wood and the hemp rope is made out of solid lisle. Some of these ropes have special knots, which allow the ropes to be retightened at any time.
