Walters RN, RTD, in Hong Kong harbour in 1938 The Pechili trading junks belong to one of the oldest types of Chinese vessel and can be traced back as far as the early 15th century. This model is an accurate representation of these large ocean-going vessels. The sails are supported with bamboo battens, which provide extra strength.
