Britannia Class Yacht


HMY Britannia – modeled on one of the Royal racing boats and this one was built for the Prince of Wales in 1893 to challenge the very best from the USA in the Americas Cup. The original was 121 feet long and 164 feet high, and for our model we have moved on to centimetres – 79 cms long and 88 cms high. Royal colours, we read somewhere that King George V wanted the original buried with him but correct us if we’re wrong. We think they sunk it for him somewhere, maybe in the lake behind Buck House. There is a replica out there somewhere on the seas today.
