H.M.S. SWIFT Royal Mails Packet ship 1778Kit

This two-masted schooner is an authentic replica of a Virginia-built pilot boat that appeared shortly after the American Revolution. The original Swift was used by the British consul to carry dispatches back and forth to England, and was later formally taken into the Royal Navy. Virginia pilot boats were used extensively on the Chesapeake and evolved into the famed Baltimore clippers.
