© National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London


Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull builder's style model of the yacht 'Osborne' (1870), built in 'bread and butter' fashion. The model is decked together with bulwarks, paddle boxes, two funnels and three stumped masts. It is mounted on its contemporary baseboard which is labelled '3'. Built at the Pembroke Royal Dockyard and launched on 19 December 1870, the wooden hulled yacht 'Osborne' measured 250 feet in length by 36 feet in the beam with a tonnage of 1,856 burden. The 'Osborne' was the second yacht to bear this name and was used as a tender to the Royal Yacht 'Victoria and Albert' II. It was extensively used by the Prince and Princess of Wales for cruises to the Mediterranean as well as attending Cowes Week in August. Commanded by Lord Charles Beresford from 1879-81, the 'Osborne' served until 1908, after which it was sold for breaking at Felixstowe.
