Named after the highest New Hampshire White Mountain, the MOUNT WASHINGTON represents the traditional steamboat type on Lake Winnipesaukee. Built in 1872 for the then enormous sum of US$ 62,000, the MOUNT WASHINGTON served the population around Lake Winnipesaukee for 67 years.
On the night of December 23, 1939, a terrible dock fire destroyed the MOUNT WASHINGTON. Due to the low water level there was no possibility to save the ship to safe water.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “MT Washington”
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.
Our models are strictly tested for quality, so that we can offer you a clean product. The satisfaction of our customers is our highest priority. All models are completely assembled upon shipping.
