Antique model sailing yacht

All the details

This is a bit of a restoration project for someone … it is a 22" long pond yacht made by Southern Cross Sailboat of Australia. It was bought in a car boot sale in New Zealand some years ago. The hull is solid wood and sound, and the keel is steel and also sound. All with original paint and probably dating from the 1950s or 1960s. The sails need a good clean but are otherwise good to reuse, but the various slender wooden spars and the rigging lines need to be sorted out or replaced - they are held in place in the photos by masking tape so you can see what it looks like when assembled and ready to sail. It's a beauty! For the nautically minded it is cutter rigged with a gunter main sail, and it really does sail. Comes with original wooden stand. Collect from Eynsham.
