The Defender was an approx. 37.5 meter long sailing yacht, which was completed for the ninth America’s Cup 1895. The boat was designed and built by “Nathanael Greene Herreshoff”.
The skipper “Henry C. Haff” could successfully defend the Cup for the USA with the Defender. Opponent was the British Valkyrie III, which could be defeated 3:0.
After the competitions the Defender was not moved for 4 years and was only used as a sparring partner for the trials in 1899. In 1901 the sailing yacht was scrapped.
The masts must be installed and rigged by yourself

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.
