The USS Yorktown was commissioned on April 15, 1943 and soon became World War II's famous "Fighting Lady". She earned 11 battle stars for her service in the Pacific during WWII and 5 battle stars for her Vietnam service.
Since 1975, this historic ship has been the focal point of Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum.
This 3/4" thick wooden replica of the Yorktown includes her history on the back. Set her on your work desk, bookshelf, nightstand or windowsill to remind you of your inspiring tour of her decks.
We handcraft her in our Wooster, Ohio workshop. You know it's Cat's Meow made when you find Casper, our black cat mascot, within the design. He's holding on for dear life to the side of the Yorktown.
