ALERT - American Schooner

Commissioned in 1818, the schooner Alert was pressed into privateer service for action against smugglers along the American coast. Her sleek hull lines and large sail area made for great speed and agility on the high seas. Equipped with a main cannon that rotated 360 degrees, she was able to target the enemy advancing from any direction without changing course. She was decommissioned (possibly sold) in 1829 and taken off the U.S. Coast Guard’s list of active ships.

AMERIGO VESPUCCI - Italian Training Ship

The Amerigo Vespucci is a world-famous tall ship of the Marina Militare, named after the explorer Amerigo Vespucci. Her home port is Livorno, Italy. As of 2007, she is still in use as a school ship.

In 1925, the Regia Marina ordered two school ships to be built following a design by Lieutenant Colonel Francesco Rotundi of the Italian Navy Engineering Corps, inspired by the style of large late 18th century 74-cannon ships of the line. The first of these two ships, the Cristoforo Colombo, was put into service in 1928 and was used by the Italian Navy until 1943. After World War II, this ship was handed over to the USSR as part of the war reparations and was shortly afterwards decommissioned.

The second ship of the design was the Amerigo Vespucci. The ship was built in 1930 at the (formerly Royal) Naval Shipyard of Castellammare di Stabia (Naples). She was launched on February 22, 1931, and was put into service in July of that year.

The vessel is a full rigged three masted steel hull 82.4 m long, with an overall length of 101 m (331 ft) including the bowsprit and a maximum width of 15.5 m (51 ft). She has a draught of about 7 metres (23 ft) and a displacement at full load of 4146 tons. Under auxiliary engine power, the Amerigo Vespucci reaches a top speed of 10 knots and has an autonomy of 5450 nm (at 6.5 knots).

The three steel masts are 50, 54, and 43 metres high, respectively, and carry sails that total 2824 m2 (30400 ft2) In total, the Amerigo Vespucci has 26 sails - square sails, staysails, and jibs: all are traditional canvas sails. The rig, some 30 km of rope, entirely uses traditional hemp ropes, too. Only the mooring lines are synthetic in order to comply with port regulations. Currently, she is the only existing three decked square rigger.

HMS BEAGLE - Darwin’s Brig

HMS Beagle was the ship in which the naturalist, Charles Darwin, sailed around the world between 1831 and 1836. The Beagle visited sites like the Galapagos Islands and the Great Barrier Reef. The rich variety of animal and plant species that Darwin saw on the voyage led him to develop his theory of evolution. Beagle made three voyages of exploration.

During the fi rst to South America between 1826 and 1830, the captain, Commander Pringle Stokes, shot himself in a fi t of depression and was replaced by Robert Fitzroy. He was also given command for the second voyage to South America and then around the world. Fitzroy invited the young naturalist Charles Darwin to accompany him. The voyage lasted nearly fi ve years and became one of the most famous and important voyages of exploration ever made. After the Beagle’s third voyage, which was a survey of Australia, the ship became a Coast Guard watch vessel. She was moored permanently in the River Roach in Essex until 1870 when she was sold for scrap.

BLACK PRINCE - Privateer schooner 1775

During the Revolutionary War (1774 - 76) private vessels were commissioned by the colonial rebel government to prey on British commerce and to capture, when possible, British ship. At the time of the Revolutionary War, Benjamin Franklin was ambassador to France. He allowed to buy French built corsairs through an important ship broker. These corsairs were the predecessors of the Baltimore Clippers. The ships were painted black so as to be nearly invisible at night. They were named Black Prince and Black Princess. The crew were Portuguese seamen but captained by an American. They preyed on the British trade in English coastal waters and for over a year nearly
destroyed Britain’s trade with the rest of the world.

CATALINA - Dutch pleasure yacht

The first Lemster barges were built in 1876 in the shipyard Gebr. De Boer in Lemmer, Fiesland. The Lemster barge originally was a fi shing vessel for use on the Northern part of the then still open Zuiderzee, where during wind against tide often very foul seas developed. Therefore the ship was designed to be very seaworthy and she had very good sails, making the Lemster barge one of the best and beautiful Dutch round sailing yachts.

It is the last stage in the evolution of the sailing ship and it satisfi ed the demand of the American merchant class, who has realized that the future of trade is on the sea. The American builder create quite a new ship, without imitating schemes and models of the old continent and they obtain immediately such results as to influence the world shipyards techniques. Flying Cloud, the masterpiece of builder Donald McKay, was built at East Boston in 1851. It acquired a high reputation during the Gold Rush in California, making the passage from New York to San Francisco in the record time of 88 days, 22 hours and 30 minutes, never equaled so far.

This 18 gun privateer was used by Sir Francis Drake to circumnavigate the globe. Departing in December 1577, the Golden Hind, was the only vessel to return successfully from Drake’s expedition (five vessels originally set out from England).

Drake brought a huge amount of bounty back to England with him. This enabled him to pay all of his investors, including Elizabeth I, forty seven times their original stake in the expedition.

HALIFAX - British colonial schooner 1774

Born as packet-boat, Halifax was purchased in1768 by the Royal Navy and transformed at Portsmouth into a typical colonial schooner of the time. These alterations included raising the cabin platform to obtain more storage space below, elevating the bulwarks with openings for the 6 guns and building a new railing with 6 culverins. The outer changes made to the hull as well as to masting and rigging altered deeply the original aspect. The sources concerning the life of this ship are extremely contradictory. It sailed prevailingly along the American coasts in a rather complex period of history of this country.

The lugger was a kind of ship used by the French pirates of the Revolution and of the Empire. It is a type of ship equipped as a bragozzo, with 3 masts, a very long bowsprit, several jibs, topsails and some foretopsails. It was built by the Denys de Dunkerque and launched in 1776. The career of this ship was short because it was captured by the English on 17th June 1778 during a battle, between the frigate La Belle Poule and the frigate Arethusa. The destiny of the ship after it was captured by the English is not widely known. Was it taken back by the French in 1782 as stated by some authors? Or was it captured by the Americans off Terranova in 1780?

The richness of the superstructures, reproduced with refi ned performance and faithful scale, the characteristic paddle-wheels and the classic masting give the model.

The Royal Louis was a 3 deck vessel with 120 guns. Its captain was a Squadron
Admiral. It was one of the most powerful fi rst rank vessels belonging to the French Royal Navy at the time. Our model represents the Royal Louis according to the plans of 1779, when it was admiral ship of the blue and white Squadron, being part of the American Squadron, also called Earl Estaing’s. Our kit is particularly rich in accessories and decorations. Whoever knows how complex are the deck’s superstructures of this ship, can easily understand the problems we had to solve in order not to alter the real image. The several molten decorations of the transom are made precious by veneer insertions of precious wood. Thanks to the particular structure of the ship, the reproduction accuracy is such that, through a window of the stern balconies, it is possible to catch a glimpse of the complete inside deck’s dressing.

HMS SURPRISE - 18th Century British Frigate

Originally a French corvette named L’Unite and armed with 24 nine pound long guns, she was designed by M. Forfait and was built at Le Havre. Captured in 1796 by HMS Inconstant, L’Unite was rechristened HMS Surprise and converted by the British into a 28-gun sixth-rate, carrying 24 32-pound carronades on her main deck, eight more of the same on her quarter deck and forecastle, as well as 4 six-pound long guns as chasers. She gained fame for the cutting-out expedition in 1799 of HMS Hermione Hermione’s crew had mutinied, and had sailed her into Spanish possession in Puerto Cabello. Captain Edward Hamilton of the Surprise led a boarding party to retake the Hermione from the mutineers and, after a sharp action, sailed her out of danger under Spanish gunfi re back into British control. She was sold out of the Service in 1802.
