Shamrock Half Hull

$760.00

Shamrock V was one of the competitors of the America Cup, built in 1930 after plans by architect Charles Nicholson, for the account of Sir Thomas Lipton. It is a J-class ship. A fast ship, Shamrock V lost however during finals of the 15th America Cup, won by the Enterprise defending the American colors.

Following her launch on 14 April 1930 she showed early promise on the British Regatta circuit winning 15 of 22 races. She also underwent continuous upgrading with changes to her hull shape, rudder, and modifications to the rig to create a more effective racing sail plan before departing to America in time for the 15th America’s Cup.

Following changes of ownership in the 1990s and another renovation, Shamrock V participated in a reunion in August 2001 with the only two remaining J-Classes, Endeavour, and Velsheda, for the America’s Cup Jubilee in the Solent. In March 2016 it was reported that Shamrock V had changed ownership and had been listed for sale with an asking price of €6 million.
