America was a 19th-century racing yacht and first winner of the America’s Cup international sailing trophy. On August 22, 1851, America won the Royal Yacht Squadron’s 53-mile (85 km) regatta around the Isle of Wight by 18 minutes. The Squadron’s “One Hundred Sovereign Cup” or “£100 Cup”, sometimes mistakenly known in America as the “One Hundred Guinea Cup,” was later renamed after the original winning yacht.

Designed for the sailboat enthusiast, the museum-quality replica of the America racing yacht is a highly accurate and detailed scale model yacht. Perfectly sized to display upon any desk, bookshelf, or mantle, the fine craftsmanship and classic lines of this famous sailing yacht will stir the racing spirit within.
