The Sovereign of the Seas was the first 100-cannon warship in the world under King Charles I of England to be launched at Woolwich in October 1637. The largest and heaviest ship in history to date was also the first ship with three continuous decks. It was designed by master shipbuilder Phineas Pett, who had already built the largest ship to date, the Prince Royal with 55 cannons, for James I of England in 1610. Charles I had to introduce a new, unpopular ship tax to finance the new ship. During reconstruction work in 1697, a fire broke out which completely destroyed the Sovereign. Later the “Royal Sovereign” was built from parts of the remains.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “Sovereign Of The Seas” 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.
