This America's Cup Shamrock V 1930 half hull model was crafted in mahogany and tropical hard woods by the traditional plank on bulkhead method. After the bulkheads are laid and the hull lines trued, the hull is planked with individual wooden strips to form a smooth silhouette.
The Shamrock V 1930 model is then sanded, hand painted with shamrock green topsides, white cove stripe and white boot stripe.The hull is stained and varnished to a mirror-like finish. The half hull is then mounted on a ready to hang wooden plaque, with an engraved brass nameplate. The half hull model is built exactly to scale as the original Shamrock V was. The task required skillful craftsmen hundreds of hours to accomplish.
