This strikingly large and slender schooner was built in New York in 1903.
The owner, Wilson Marshall was the heir to his father's Broadway Stage Line fortune. She measured 56.43 meters (185'6) over the bows without bowsprit of 11.25 meters (37'). With her beam of 8.85 meters (29') and draft of 5.50 meters (18') her displacement was 395 tons.
Unlike the flat out big class racing schooners of the time ATLANTIC was the quintessential cruiser/racer. She could do 17 knots on her steam engine of 400hp, which weighed 30 tons including boiler, but excluding coal. Two generators provided electricity. She had heating, refrigeration, and water heaters. The lobby was finished in marble and the interior was fitted out with the finest mahogany panelling. There were three large tiled bathrooms (with bath tubs) and a large galley.
In 1905 she set a transatlantic record of 12 days, 4 hours, and 1 minute, which stood for 100 years.
Our model features a wooden planked hull, detailed deck fittings and comprehensive rigging. Larger than your average model at 112 cm boom to bowsprit, and 104 cm from stand to mast tip, this schooner has real visual impact.
Supplied with masts folded to the deck in a polystyrene protected carton with a comprehensive assembly drawing. Allow 15-20 minutes for assembly.
