Quick Overview

Billings Boats - Mayflower Wood ship kit


Scale model of an English three-masted galleon.

A three-masted galleon launched in 1615. Length 19.50 m, breadth 7.95 m, draught 3.35 m and a displacement of 180 tons. The earliest information about the Mayflower dates from 6th September 1620. After a number of difficulties, the vessel sailed from Plymouth in England with 102 men, women and children on board and a crew of about 30 men. After 67 days at sea, the Mayflower cast anchor at the port later to be called Provincetown - almost 200 miles further north than planned.This voyage has become an iconic story in some of the earliest annals of American history, with its story of death and of survival in the harsh New England winter environment. The culmination of the voyage in the signing of the Mayflower Compact was an event which established a rudimentary form of democracy, with each member contributing to the welfare of the community.

The Mayflower II was built in 1957 in Brixham, Devon and sailed to the USA, where it is now permanently anchored as a gift to the American nation.

Included in the kit is a laser cut wooden hull and wooden strips, fittings set, sails, rigging thread, plan and manual. Scale model of an English three-masted galleon.
