Winner of the 1905 Kaiser’s Cup. Built in 1903, the sleek, black, steel-hulled ATLANTIC not only won the prestigious trans-Atlantic race…she set a record for a sailing vessel, unbeaten until 1997, of 12 days, 4 hours, 1 minute and 19 seconds.
Powered by a steam auxiliary engine, she sported a special low-drag propeller and a folding funnel, both of which were removed for racing.
An updated version of the original Boucher kit, designed in 1934, BlueJacket’s new ATLANTIC has a machine-carved basswood hull, finely-cast Britannia pewter and etched brass fittings, wood, sheet styrene and all other needed materials. The clearly written instructions and the redrawn plans make it easy for even the less experienced modeler to produce a striking and impressive model.
