Endeavour J Class Model Yacht
The J-class yacht especially reserved for the elite and wealthy yachtsmen was said to be one of top rated yachts designed in the 1930s. These yachts established in 1929 were famous for competing with the best players of the America’s Cup. The Endeavour J Class Yacht was said to be one of the best vessels ever built. However, during the period 1930-1937, a number of alterations, like duplication of winches and the use of Duralium for the wing-mast were made to increase the efficiency of the yacht. Charles Ernest has a great contribution for the miles covered by the J class yachts as he arranged for a hefty amount to improve the quality of these yachts.
Endeavour J Class Yacht: A Look at its History
Designed by Charles Ernest Nicholson and built by Camper and Nicholson together, the Endeavour J class yacht dominated the British sailing scene. In 1937, this yacht was found to be disconnected from her tow while sailing across the Atlantic towards Britain. Eventually it was found and was given back to England. She was passed onto a various owners for a time span of 46 years. It was even sold as scrap in 1947, and was about to be demolished but was saved just in time by a buyer. Somewhere in the 1970s it sank in River Medina at the Isle of Wight. She was however, bought back at just 10 pounds by two carpenters who fixed the holes in the vessel using plastic bags and refloated it. Finally, her journey came to an end at Calpot Spit, where she was badly broken with just the hull remaining.
