Information

Red Jacket (BJ-K1017) Length 41″ / Scale 1/8″

RED JACKET was probably the best known and most beautiful of the extreme clippers launched in 1853 (the golden year of the clippership era). Proof of the fine sailing ability of RED JACKET is the fact that she is one of only 10 sailing ships to ever exceed a passage of over 400 nautical miles made good in a 24 hour time period. On her maiden voyage she set a record for commercial sailing vessels which stands to this day, New York to Liverpool in 13 days, 1 hour and 25 minutes.BlueJacket’s
