DESCRIPTION SITE :

Charles E. Nicholson designed and built Shamrock IV for Sir Thomas Lipton's fourth Cup challenge in 1914. "The ugly duckling," as she was called by her designer, had long, flat, lopped-off ends and a sliding centerboard in her keel. When she was halfway across the Atlantic on the way to the races, World War I broke out, and she was put in drydock until the end of the war. When the match against N. G. Herreshoffs Resolute was finally held in 1920,Shamrock IV lost in spite of an early lead. Sir Thomas said he never wanted to see the boat again, and Shamrock IV's bronze hull was sold for scrap and her timbers cut up for firewood.
