1929 powerboat model

Can anyone identify this model?

It is currently in Manhattan NY but what was its initial purpose - A trophy?

Attached two images of the sterling silver 1929 powerboat model made by Birmingham silversmiths Vaughton & Sons.
It may once have been designed for use as an inkwell as they two circular ropes on the bow are hinged and contain glass lined containers.
