Endeavour Ship Model by Abordage

America's Cup 130' J-Class sloop Challenger. As she swept through the British racing fleet and into the hearts of yachtsmen around the world, she became renowned as the most beautiful J ever built.

Sir Thomas Lipton , Shamrock V's owner, decided to enter the fray. He ordered a new J Class from Nicholson, the Endeavour. Nicholson designed his most fabulous challenger, with a very elegant shape and real speed capacities.The fifteenth challenge of the America's Cup was quite a paradox: the faster yacht was beaten by the slower but better sailed yacht.

In fact, with Rainbow, the Americans were saved solely due to her tactical sense and a lot of luck.

Endeavour layed down for years in the USA, without care. She was rescued by Elizabeth Meyer, of Newport, RI. Today after a $10,000,000 restoration, she is one of the most breathtaking sights on the water. To take helm of such a boat is to experience pure power, grace and speed.
