This fun speed boat is from the era of big fins and wings. The sporty Cobra model is hand-crafted from strips of hard wood, planks on frame. The model is fully assembled and is ready to be proudly display.
Master craftsmen handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch using historical photographs, drawings and original plan. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. They are 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop.
For many centuries, boats that sailed on the Indian Ocean were called dhows and were distinguishable from ships that sailed on the Mediterranean or China Sea by the shape of the Dhow's triangular sails. Today you can own this unique model fully assembled in your own home or office!
The Dhow is made out of stained wood with no metal or plastic pieces. It features plank on frame construction. The front bowsprit and two triangular masts are connected securely using advanced rigging and lines painstakingly knotted and fastened by hand. Each yard has an attached hand-stitched unfurled sails made of fine linen. Metal anchors and a wooden rudder are visible on the front and rear of the ship. It comes with a stand and ready for display.
For many centuries, boats that sailed on the Indian Ocean were called dhows and were distinguishable from ships that sailed on the Mediterranean or China Sea by the shape of the Dhow's triangular sails. Despite its historical attachment to Arab traders, dhows are essentially an Indian boat, with much of the wood for its construction coming from the forests of India. The dhow was known for two distinctive features including its aforementioned triangular or lateen sail, and also for its stitched construction. Stitched boats were made by sewing the hull boards together with fibers, cords or thongs.
Dhow is just the very word conjures up a host of images, from pearl divers and fishermen to merchants, smugglers and adventurers. Like the Windtower, the dhow is synonymous with the Gulf, and it is probably one of the most widely-recognized icons of Arab culture, known to millions who have never traveled in the region.
