This pond yacht is one of a range of yachts made for the London stores Hamleys and Gamages. It has been suggested that they were made by Games Industries who produced Albatross pond yachts. Although the colour is the same it is a different design and we have been unable to confirm this.
She has her original blue paintwork with black coachlines. She has been overvarnished at the deck hull joint so it was intended that she be sailed. However, if she was it cannot be very often because she is in almost mint condition and is totally original.
The deck has its original varnish with plank lines and a lovely faux cabin top.
The sails are original but are a little grubby with a couple of waterstains. The rig is totally original, all bowsies, hooks etc even the rigging.
The stand is made of pitch pine but is not as old as the yacht.
It is basic but displays the yacht well and is included in the sale if required.
This yacht is a very decorative example and is in super condition.
