Jolie Brise Wooden Ship Model. Scale 1:50
ART-22180 - Artesania Latina
This beautiful French boat was launched in 1913 and is still sailing the waters off Le Havre today. The Jolie Brise is a gaff rigged pilot cutter built and launched by the Albert Paumelle Yard in Le Havre in 1913. After a short career as a pilot boat, owing to steam replacing sail, she became a fishing boat. In 1977 she was bought for Dauntseys School Sailing Club.
It became a legendary racing cutter winning the first Fastnet race in 1925, and again in 1930, among many other races. The owner gained a great deal of fame after rescuing the crew of the Adriana during the Bermuda Ocean Race of 1932 when she caught fire and was lost during the race.
The kit features plenty of pre-cut African Walnut, Ramin, Sapele, Coral plywood and Boxwood for the double plank on bulkhead hull construction, deck planking, lifeboat, lots of brass and copper pieces for detailing such as eyebolts, deck lights, and hinges, 3 colours and sizes of thread for rigging, exquisite hand sewn sails, and a photo illustrated instruction booklet, and display base.
