A sloop refers to a sailing boat with a single mast and a fore-and-aft rig. Most commonly a sloop will only have one head sail, however in America they can be found to contain two or three head sails. The model boat we have available is of the American model and contains two head sails. In order to perform well when sailing close hauled to windward, this model of a boat has been designed to incorporate its simple system of mast stays, in particular forestay, backstay and side-stays along with its simpler sailing rig configurations.
Modern sloops are called Bermuda sloops due to their simple rig producing easily manoeuvrable and fast sailing, originally developed in Bermuda in the 17th century. The Jamaican sloop on the other hand is slightly different consisting of narrower beams and the sloops were built near the shore from cedar trees. The Newport Sloop model boat is representative of the expertise and quality here at Model Ships. Fully painted and ready to be put on display, this yacht model would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
