The sailing ship Alexander von Humboldt is a steel German barque which was built in 1906 as a lightship under the name “Reserve Sonderburg”. In the mid-1980s she was decommissioned as a lightship and converted into a sailing ship. Until its decommissioning on 9 October 2011, it served as a youth and training ship.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT”
This model is 100 % hand made and crafted with great precision.
Exotic woods, such as teak, mahogany, rosewood or mango are being used, which result in precious, decorative and exclusive models as an end product. The hull is being sanded down carefully after completion, and if required, painted with clear coating material.
Ornaments and embellishments (for example canons, bull’s-eyes, anchor, dials or wheels et cetera) are made out of brass, chrome and other high-quality metals.
The sails are either out of cloth or silk, the mast is made out of wood and the hemp rope is made out of solid lisle. Some of these ropes have special knots, which allow the ropes to be retightened at any time.
