The Bluenose is a famous Canadian schooner, which was considered to be the fastest sailing ship operated by fishermen. On 28 January 1946 she ran on a reef off Haiti and sank.
The brewery Oland & Sons from Halifax brought the money together at the beginning of the sixties to realize a faithful replica of the Bluenose. The Bluenose II was launched in July 1963 and only differs from the original in its interior design.
In 2010 the Bluenose II was gutted and completely rebuilt. The launch of the new building took place on 29 September 2012. Although only a few parts were reused, the project is officially regarded as a repair and the ship still bears the name Bluenose II.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “Bluenose II”
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.
