Product Description

SHAMROCK V with See Thru Hull, J-Class America's Cup Challenger Ship Model 1930 (32in)

Shamrock V was Sir Thomas Lipton's fifth try for the America's Cup. The rules had changed to the majestic J-Class yachts. For this challenger, Lipton turned once more to Charles Nicholson, who produced a beautiful sloop.

When the races started, Shamrock found herself pitted against Enterprise. In the best-of-seven series Enterprise won four, Shamrock failed to score a single victory.

The J-Class serves as a rating for large sailing yachts designed between 1930 and 1937. Reserved for a wealthy elite of yachtsmen, these boats were used to compete with the best sailing talents in three races of the America's Cup.

Ten yachts were built to the J-Class rule between 1930 and 1937, six in America and four in Great Britain.
