A large custom-built pond yacht hull on stand, circa 1930’s. With planked wood deck and sailing hardware, white painted hull, keel and rudder- attached to a wooden display base. Missing hatch cover. Measures 50 inches in length.
This model was the property of Captain William H. Hamilton, USN and was built for him when he was a child. Captain Hamilton was the co-author of the book Night Fighter: An Insider’s Story of Special Ops From Korea to SEAL Team 6 with Charles W. Sasser. The book recaps the author’s personal accounts - the “Father of the US Navy SEALs” tells his story of founding the most effective and feared fighting force ever conceived.
