Half-Model Estella Sloop

Half-Model Estella Sloop


R.E. McLain, of Bremen Long Island, Maine, built the original Estella A in 1904 for H.J. Ames. Ames, a Matinicus, Maine, lobsterman, named the vessel for his daughter, Mrs. Julia Estella Ames Ripley. The Estella A worked in Maine waters for nearly 30 years, before being sold to a Rhode Island yachtsman, who altered the boat for his purposes. Own an outstanding half-model of this classic Maine vessel. This particular half-model was built in the Museum's own boatshop by our dedicated volunteers using the lines of the original Estella A.
