A full hull model of a Merchant sailing brig, circa 1840
Scale: 1:32. A contemporary full hull model of sailing merchantman of about 1840, complete with a full suit of sails of which are modern and added in 1963. The hull is fully equipped on deck including a full set of boats, anchors and the handling gear, accommodation and deckhouses, and a full-length male figurehead on the bow. This vessel is snow-rigged which means that an additional small vertical spar is mounted on the after side of the mainmast which made handling the large driver or spanker sail easier to handle. These ships carried a variety of cargoes both around the coast and worldwide, as well as the transportation of people for the emigrant trade.
