Nicholson built Shamrock V in 1930. Yet again, he was unable to equal the Americans. Although this time they did not have eight years experience with the new International Rule, they were out in force; for the 1930 challenge they built 4 J Class. Charles Nicholson had only one chance to exploit the formula to the hull. Moreover the Americans made faster progress than the English with their yacht equipment. Shamrock V looked a poor relative next to Enterprise. The Challenger was undisputability beaten by the Defender. Shamrock V was not as fast as she was beautiful.
The last challenge of Sir Thomas Lipton concluded with a disastrous defeat against Enterprise. But his popularity in the United State was such that the public response to a subscription to award him a gold souvenir cup was massive. Overwhelmed, the ordinarily loquacious gentleman was scarcely able to utter a few words, "Although I have always lost, you make me think I have won. But I will try again, yes, I wil try again!". "Tommy", as he was affectionately known, was never keep his promise. He died on October 2nd, 1931, a few months after finally being admitted as a mumber of the Royal Yacht Squadron.
Sixty years later, Shamrock V was still sailing under an italian flag, having been re-christened Quadrifoglio. She was repurchased in 1986 by the Thomas Lipton Company, given back her original name and is now the property of the Newport Museum of Yachting, founded by the Company. Finally Shamrock V has been refitted by the famous yachtlady Elizabeth Meyer and is sailing worldwide for races and charter. One of her recent greatest victory was during the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta 1999, where she raced against 2 other remaining J Boats, Endeavour and Velsheda.
These highly-detailed models that are completely assembled and ready to display, not kits to build nor are they made from kits.  Each ship is produced from "scratch" with selected hardwoods and metals handmade by Master Craftsmen.  Made to their exact specifications using "plank on bulkhead" construction, along with painstaking detail, the results are the finest "Museum Quality" models on the market.
