1939 AJ FISHER MODEL "CHEERIO II" ERROL FLYNN'S YACHT
- Source: eBay
This model was built from a blueprint (included in sale) produced by A. J. Fisher, Inc. of Royal Oak, Michigan, maker of model yacht fittings, sails and rigging. The hull is complete but appears never to have been rigged or used. It comes with some but not all spars and a box full of Fisher fittings. I am not sure they are all t Also included are rigging and fitting plans for the finished model and two period Fisher catalogs.
The hull is in excellent condition with fabulous original paint that has never been exposed to the weather.
It measures 50" long, 11" high, 9.5" wide and has a 13lb. lead keel. It comes with the stand shown.
Buyer pays actual shipping plus $50 for professional crating.
I will be unable to ship until the week of April 14th.
I guarantee my sales unconditionally for 10 days from receipt.
I have had a number of questions about the Errol Flynn connection to this model. The model was not made for Flynn but is modeled after his real 46' yacht, "Cheerio II" . Cheerio II was designed by Edson B. Shock and was built by Fellows & Stewart in San Pedro, California.
