THE BRITANNIA GOSLING
The design of Our 12 inch Britannia Gosling pond yacht range has been informed by the designs of Bowman free sailing English pond yachts of the 1950s. The Britannia Gosling includes a traditional hand-carved wooden hull and stainless steel keel to help provide straight-line stability.
The Britannia Gosling pond yacht performs well on the water with a fully adjustable jib and mainsail allowing you to alter her course. She is small enough to be put in the boot of the car or in a bag on the back of a motorcycle, and the fold-down mast allows the Britannia Gosling to be carried anywhere.
Britannia Gosling pond yachts are all hand-carved from a solid piece of timber and finished in varnish or painted in a variety of different colours. Hand sewn Dacron sails fill to provide the perfect aerofoil shape allowing outstanding performance for a yacht of this size. The Britannia Gosling is the perfect little yacht for those who would like to try their hand at free sailing for the first time, the Britannia Gosling can be sailed on swimming pools, ponds, lakes, canals and rivers. With such good performance, It is advisable that the Britannia Gosling is sailed using a suitable tether. A wooden display stand is provided so that you may display the Britannia Gosling when not in use.
Please note that young children must always be supervised by a responsible adult when near water.
We are able to provide your Britannia Gosling with traditional Cambric Cotton sails upon request.
