~ Circa 1950’s Wooden Pond Yacht ~
This is a lovely example of a 1950’s pond yacht.
It is an all wood construction with a blue painted carved out solid hull and a lead keel with a varnished lined wooden deck to simulate planking. It is complete with three cotton sails and comes its with wooden stand.
~ Dimensions ~
The hull by itself measures 29 inches (74cm). When fully assembled and on the stand the model measures 43 inches (110cm) long by 41 inches (104cm) high and 6 ½ inches (17cm) wide.
The model weighs 3.7kg
~ Condition ~
The piece is in overall very good condition, but due to the age of the piece and that it is a used model there is of course some wear and it would need a few repairs to get it back to sailing condition.
Some of the strings and are worn and probably need replacing. The sails are all present but have some staining and a few small holes. The spars are all in good order. The yacht is missing its rudder.
