While the Americas Cup is often seen as a trophy won by its domestic hosts, some ships broke the mould. The Australia II was one of the only seven non-Amercan yacht to have done so, triumphing famously in the 1983 Americas Cup. Under the banner of the Royal Perth Yacht Club, this famous sailing boat earned itself both history and notoriety with how she managed to win the cup. Therefore, she is a boat that has quickly become both a legend of the seas and, in the eyes of some, a villain of the waters.Now, you could get your hands on an Australia II model yacht perfect for display. A true model of the Australian yachting industry, she was a culmination of many years of hard work, commitment and craft. The end result is a boat that changed the face of nautical competitive sport for many years. This is why we love having this as one of our wooden sailboats models: shes a bit of a legend in its own right. Our scale recreation looks to bring the Australia II to life, with everything from the materials used to the shape of the boat ensuring she stands out accordingly. Indeed, weve hand-built these amazing Australia II model sailing boats to ensure she retains the rich character, charism and class of the real thing.
