The San Felipe was a warship of the Spanish navy, which was launched in La Coruna in 1690. At that time it was probably the most heavily armed ship of the Spanish fleet.
In 1705 the San Felipe was involved in a sea battle with 35 English ships. She was heavily damaged, boarded and sank.
However, today there are also doubts whether the San Felipe ever existed in this form, since many technical elements were actually too far advanced for the age and the Spanish navy and the design is partly based on later French ships.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the San Felipe.
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, bullâ€™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.
