YACHT D’ORO 1679
YACHT D’ORO – Built in Kolberg in 1678-79 for the Grand Electorate of Brandenberg, this vessel was also known as the â€œGreat Yacht. She was armed with eight guns. She sailed between Amsterdam, London and Berlin before she broke up in 1721.
Corelâ€™s Yacht D’Oro kit uses pre-cut frames and keel for its single plank-on-frame construction. Wooden formers assure proper hull shape, and pre-formed resin transom saves building time. Correctly scaled blocks, deadeyes and belaying pins, burnished metal cannon on wooden carriages and brass ornamentation outfit your model. A photo-etched copper sheet reproduces the elaborate detailing of the bulwarks, doors, windows and other trim. Three diameters of rigging line, cotton sail cloth and silk-screened flags complete the kit. Plans are on two large sheets.
