Scale: circa 1:36. A contemporary full hull model of a hoy (circa 1750). The model is decked, equipped and rigged with the sails set. The sails, with reefing pennants on the mainsail, were added by the Museum. The model is not particularly well executed: both the beam and depth are probably too great in comparison with the length. It was previously in the Mercury Collection and was acquired for the Caird Collection in 1929. The vessel measured 56 feet in length by 21 feet in the beam, displacing approximately 100 tons burden.
