Britannia – Mantua

(MA733) Length 30.0″/ Height 37.8″/ Scale 1:64



Britannia (MA733) Length 30.0″/ Height 37.8″/ Scale 1:64.

Designed by G.L. Watson, the yacht Britannia was built at the request of Edward II, Prince of Wales at that time. It is considered by the English the most important and representative racing yacht of that time. It is difficult to conceive a drawing that makes its lines be considered old-fashioned.

This is the type of hull whose beauty is evident at first sight. The quality of the construction stood up to the test  of time. The rigging, on the contrary underwent all those modifications that science and the yachts fashion suggested.

Britannia keeps an exceptional record of victories.
