MV 43

American sloop – 1885
(Sc. 1:50 L. 870 mm. H. 940 mm.)

 

Planned by Edward Burgess, the Puritan was a sloop of little less than 30 meters with a good width and the sliding keel which is characteristic of the American boats of that class - In 1885, under Captain Aubrey Crocker’s command, she defended the America’s Cup against the English cutter Genesta, winning in only two races.
