In 1929 the president of the Ford Motor Company Edsel Ford commissioned the construction of the Typhoon as sister ship of the “Teaser”. Both ships were designed by George Crouch. The Typhoon was twelve meters long, had three cockpits with room for 8 persons and was equipped with a 32770 ccm Wright Typhoon engine.
Edsel Ford used the Typhoon mainly to commute between his residence at Lake St. Claire and the Ford factories.
After the death of Edsel Ford, the Typhoon passed into the ownership of Howard Hughes in 1943, who sold it again after the World War. In the 60’s the boat fell victim to a fire in a dock in Seattle.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “Typhoon”
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.
