SMA-07 Endeavour (1934) Model Yacht by Abordage: 

Museum Quality  History of the Endeavour:

The owner of the big White Eather, W.E. Stephenson, announced his intention in 1933 to build a new J-Class: Charles E. Nicholson built a splendid steel yacht for him,Velsheda, and he saw from her first outings that she was a possible challenger of the America's Cup. Sir Thomas Lipton , Shamrock V's owner, decided to enter the fray. He ordered a new J Class from Nicholson, Endeavour.Nicholson designed his most fabulous challenger, with a very elegant shape and real speed capacities.The fifteenth challenge of the America's Cup was quite a paradox:the faster yacht was beaten by the slower but better sailed yacht. In fact, with Rainbow, the Americans were saved solely due to her tactical sense and a lot of luck. Endeavour layed down for years in the USA, without care.She was rescued by Elizabeth Meyer, of New-Port, RI. Today after a $ 10,000,000 restoration, she is one of the most breathtaking sights on the water. To take helm of such a boat is to experience pure power, grace and speed.
