Shamrock V is the name of a sailing yacht that was built in 1930 by the Camper & Nicholsons shipyard in Gosport according to the rules of the J-class for the America’s Cup. The name Shamrock refers to the Irish cloverleaf.
After a bitter defeat against the “Enterprise” in the 14th America’s Cup, the Shamrock V was later sold to Italy. In 1986 the Lipton Tea Company bought the ship and donated it to the Museum of Yachting in Newport on Rhode Island.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “Shamrock 1930”
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.
