HMY BRITANNIA



Britannia was launched by Queen Elizabeth II on 16 April 1953 and commissioned on 11 January 1954.  During her career as Royal Yacht, she conveyed the Queen, other members of the Royal Family, and various dignitaries on 696 foreign visits and 272 visits in British waters.  Prince Charles and Princess Diana took a honeymoon cruise aboard Britannia in 1981.  The ship was intended to serve as a mobile refuge for the British Royal Family in the event of nuclear warfare with the Soviet Union.  She also was designed to be converted into a hospital ship in time of war, though this facility was never used. 

 

 
 
 





This Britannia royal yacht model features:

- Scratch built

- Plank-on-frame, hollow hull construction (very important), weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 40 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

-  No computer-printed paper deck

- >95% of parts are wood and metal

36" long x 16" tall x 5" wide. 
 $2,700    S & H is $90   SOLD
