Description

The ship model shown here is a true-to-scale replica of the “Batavia”.

This model is 100% handmade with precision and traditional frame construction with fuselage planking.
Exotic woods, such as teak, mahogany, rosewood or mango are being used, which result in precious, decorative and exclusive models as an end product.
After completion, the hull will be sanded and painted, if intended. The model is then coated with a protective clear varnish.

Ornaments and decorations (such as cannons, portholes, anchors, dials and wheels …) are made of brass, chrome or other high-quality metals.

The sails are made of fabric or silk, the masts are made of wood and the rope is made of solid cotton threads. Some of these ropes have special knots with which the ropes can be retensioned at any time.
