Red Jacket, American Clipper Ship of 1853, wooden ship model kit by BlueJacket, #K1017

RED JACKET was commissioned by Seacomb & Taylor (Boston), designed by Samuel H. Pook, and built by George Thomas (Rockland, Maine).She 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 ever to have exceeded 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 kit is designed for expert modelers. Her plans are the finest available, based upon the most current research. The kit contains our famous carved hull, along with a great deal of etched brass, pewter fittings, etc. etc. etc. Optional copperplates available for additional realism..
