About the Armed Virginia Sloop
Launched circa 1768, the Armed Virginia Sloop was a single-masted privateer (or smuggler), which was a significant evolution in the range of fast sailing vessels of the time. While small, it was a well-designed ship with an elegant sheer and low freeboard.
As an intermediate kit, this will offer a great challenge for anyone looking to recreate a significant part of maritime history.
