A superb, museum-quality model of the ship at the heart of one of what is considered by many to be the last great voyage of exploration, and a story of valiance and fortitude for all to survive over a year against all odds.
The aptly named Endurance, built for durability in extreme polar conditions, resisted ten months held fast in pack ice, immortalized in the photographs of photographer Frank Hurley.
This plank-on-bulkhead model, using the best well-seasoned precious hardwoods, faithfully captures the lines of what was perhaps the strongest wooden ship ever built. The above photograph shows her bow, designed to meet the ice head on, and capturing the essence and strength of the original plans, where each timber was made from a single tree, chosen so its shape would follow the natural curve of her design.
It also highlights the intricacy and quality of the chromed and brass fittings and waxed marine-brand rigging, a tribute to the attention to detail and quality of workmanship of the highly skilled and experienced artisans at Abordage.
Nothing has been compromised in this faithful reproduction of a ship that has become a symbol of man’s fortitude in adversity, and indeed of his Endurance and will to survive.

Thomas Octave Murdoch Sopwith , Shamrock V's owner ( he acquired her in 1932 ), decided to enter the fray. He ordered a new J Class from Charles E. Nicholson, Endeavour. Nicholson designed his most fabulous challenger, with a very elegant shape and real speed capacities.
The fifteenth challenge of the America's Cup was quite a paradox: the faster yacht was beaten by the slower but better sailed yacht. In fact, with Rainbow, the Americans were saved solely due to her tactical sense and a lot of luck.
Endeavour layed down for years in the USA, without care. She was rescued by Elizabeth Meyer, of Newport, RI. Today after a $ 10,000,000 restoration, she is one of the most breathtaking sights on the water. To take helm of such a boat is to experience pure power, grace and speed.
