Origin: Normand

Year: 1875

Model ship: Velox

A model of this boat is exposed to the Marine Museum in Paris.

Velox Ship Model or yacht was designed by Jacques-Augustin Normand.

Architect: Jacques-Augustin

Originally, the Velox was called Zemaiteji. It was built from the plans by Jacques-Augustin Normand and launched in 1875.

Without having participated in any regatta, this boat entered the legend by its history and its remarkable performance water sports. Throughout more than 40 meters, it proved one of the largest schooner yacht in the world, reaching peak speeds over 14 knots.

His successive owners have also contributed to his fame. But at the death of the formers, the Vélox has found other buyers than a demolition contactor.

Therefore, two ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Velox.  he model, started by Hamelin at the Musée Naval du Louvre, was completed (rigging) by the Normand shipyards in Le Havre in 1907.
