"Britannia" is one of a range of yachts made in the 1930's and sold through the famous London store Hamleys. Named after the famous racing yacht owned by the Royal Family she has the wonderful hull shape of that era.
She has a hollow hull with a separate hardwood deck. The black and gold paintwork is original but this yacht has been sailed so there are some marks on the hull most notably on the port side at the keel to ballast joint.
However, overall the condition is very good indeed considering her age. The gold coachline, name and the scroll work are perfect.
The deck is in good order with all original fittings and plank lines cut into the surface. The colour is lovely and the deck has its original red border.
The rig is in very good condition indeed. The spars, hooks and bowsies are all original. The sails are original and in really good order with no holes or tears but they do have some stains. Some of the rigging has been renewed.
The stand is made of pine and is original.
She is a very rare original yacht indeed and very evocative of the era.
