Llaut Fishing Model Boat Kit
The Llaut ships are a type of fishing vessel native to the Spanish island of Majorca. The history of the llaut ships dates as far back as pre-1900. The ship has three masts and a lateen sail. It typically measures up to four metres in length and can reach speeds of seven knots. The Llaut ships are somewhat of a national treasure in Majorca.
The first shipbuilders to make these fishing vessels were known in the country as ‘masters of the adze’ and they used local materials to individually handcraft each ship. The small size of the llaut fishing ships along with their large lateen sail made them fast, agile and perfect for a whole variety of uses, from fishing to recreational use.
Fishing in Europe has long been a lucrative trade for many. When Europe began to expand across the world, populous began to grow and the demand for resources became higher. Fishing vessels like the llaut would have been useful for supporting this growing demand and securing the development of European nations.
