Designed by B.B. Crowninshield in 1906, this 81-year-old classic design may be the oldest active racing sloop class in the U.S. She was originally designed for the Manchester Yacht Club. The boat’s continuing popularity is due to the sleek hull form and the ability to outsail many modern designs.
This model boat kit provides everything necessary to build a display model of the original gaff-rigged boat.
