"Friendship sloop builder Allan Vaites turns out fetching fiberglass "miniature" models with the same care for detail that marks his larger boat.">
This high-quality working pond boat is a scaled down replica of a Friendship Sloop built shortly after the turn of the last century. Like the real 'Friendships,' she's a good sailor and very seaworthy. This handsome heirloom model was made by the boatbuilder Allan Vaitses Assoc. Harbor Road shop. The hull is constructed of fiberglass with original wood mast boom, bowsprit and spars, dacron sails, and displayed on a wooden stand. A fun pond boat model to sail or enjoy displayed in your nautical home! Measures 42 inches x 41 1/2 inches overall, and weighs 12 pounds. Comes with original paperwork and photographs of her being sailed in 1972. From the Arthur Rebman Maritime Collection.
NOTE: This sloop model will be shipped unrigged with simple instructions of how to re-rig her.
