   THE BRITANNIA SPRITE

 Our 16 inch Britannia Sprite pond yacht has been designed by referencing the traditional free sailing English pond yachts of the Art Deco period. The beautiful curves of this  design is reminiscent of Ailsa yachts made in the 1920's using a hollow hand-carved wooden hull finished using a birch wood ply deck, fitted with a tough aluminium and stainless steel keel to help provide straight-line stability on the water

 

The size of the Britannia Sprite pond yacht allows her to sail like much larger yachts and is  provided with a fully adjustable jib and mainsail and rudder allowing you to set course. The Britannia Sprite is still small enough to fit in the car and the fold-down mast allows the Britannia Sprite to be carried easily under your arm down to the model yacht pond.  

Britannia Sprite pond yachts are all hand-carved and hollowed out from a solid piece of timber with a separate deck to aid buoyancy and reduce weight all finished in varnish or painted in a variety of different colours.  Beautifully hand sewn Dacron sails have been fitted to provide the perfect aerofoil shape giving an outstanding sailing performance.

 

The Britannia Sprite is the perfect pond yacht for the enthusiast, and can be sailed virtually anywhere, but with such good performance under sail, It is advisable that the Britannia Sprite is sailed using a suitable tether. A beautiful varnished wooden display stand is provided to allow you to display the Britannia Sprite when she is out of the water. 

We are able to provide your Britannia Sprite pond yacht with traditional Cambric Cotton sails upon request.

Dimensions: Length 475mm, Width 75mm, Overall Height 575mm

Price: £295.00

The Britannia Sprite is made to order and to your specification and she is hand made in England
