Dutch Herring Model Boat
Premier Ship Models offers you models of famous, historical, classic and modern ships and boats. These models are available in standard, superior and premier. At Premier Ship Models, you can find museum quality models for sale in the UK, which have been exquisitely handcrafted to perfection.
The Dutch Herring Boat model is an unusual one for us, as it was built from a kit. It hopefully shows our ability to build models from model boat kits, as our normal practice is to build scratch. Let us read through to get familiar with the history of Dutch Herring Boat.
History of the Dutch Herring Boat
Used by the Dutch and Flemish during the 15th to early 19th century, the herring boat was a naval vessel used for fishing. This marine vessel holds an illustrious history. Herring boats were used as cargo vessels during the Crusades in the Mediterranean. It was considered to have originated from the Viking longship, popularly known asthe bǘza.
This boat was initially adapted to be used as a fishing boat in the Netherlands, subsequent to the gibbing invention, which made preservation of herring at sea possible. This made extensive voyages feasible and therefore allowed the Dutch fishermen to go behind herring shoals away from the coast. Around 1415, the first herring boat was presumably built in Hoorn. The last one was constructed in 1841 at Vlaardingen.
Premier Ship Models offers you the scaled down version of the famous Dutch Herring Boat. We also offer other model ships and yachts available in all sizes like small, medium and large.
Handcrafted by a team of experienced and skillful master craftsmen in the UK, these models replicate even the minutest details of the original vessel. We also have model kits especially designed for DIY enthusiasts and experienced collectors, who like to assemble ship and boat models themselves. Timely delivery along with best quality and service is our aim.
