This model was designed by Rick Shousha, in June 2022, with research done, and some lines prepared, by George Townsend, one of our best J-class scale model clients, and a very good J-class racer.

Velsheda was designed by Charles Ernest Nicholson and built by Camper and Nicholsons for William Lawrence Stephenson of the Royal Ulster Yacht Club. She did not compete in any America’s Cup challenges.

    • the laser-cut elements to build the hull

At a future time, we may be designing the deck and deck structure but, for now, the kit does not include those parts.

Please note the kit does not include strip wood, ballast, spars, mast, rigging, or electronics. Planking available separately.

Our hulls are designed to allow you to add ballast where necessary and the depths of the keels are tweaked for better handling. This J-Class sailboat hull is deepened by approximately two inches below the scale depth. This is in concordance with the rules of the official J-Class R/C website which can be found here

It would be pleasure to cut a set of frames for you.

Thanks for looking!
