HISTORY OF AMERICAN SCHOONERS
Schooners are a type of sailboat defined by their rigging. To a fast hull is added a sail that is also fast and with good ability to navigate to windward. They were popular for many purposes, such as transporting cargo or fishing, as well as being widely used by privateers. The Harvey is a new edition of this classic 19th century American schooner.
It is a reminiscent of the lines of the old coastal schooners of the 1860s in the United States that cannot be missing in your naval modeling collection.
