The Bluenose II was the successor of the original ship of the same name that was built in 1921 in Nova Scotia. Originally a fishing schooner that was built for beauty, efficiency and speed, this majestic boat later went on to become a famous racing ship that won the International Fisherman’s Trophy for 17 straight years in a row. This led the Bluenose II to become an enduring symbol of Canada’s maritime spirit.
This large painted replica of the famous ship takes hundreds of hours to complete. It is crafted by model boat experts who use the same plank-on-frame construction methods that actual shipbuilders use today. Original plans, drawings and historical photographs were used in the design of the ship for accuracy. Every boat is built 100 percent by hand using high-grade wood such as rosewood, mahogany and western red cedar.
The large Bluenose II measures 47” L x 9” W x 41” H and weighs 6.6 lbs. The ship has been hand painted in a rich rosewood color with an upper black hull. The masts and booms are also painted yellow to match the original ship’s color scheme. All the sails are hand stitched and rigged. The deck is filled with small details that make this model ship truly unique. Looking on board you will discover small wooden lifeboats, cabins, companion ways, hatches and more.
This model ship will arrive with the masts and sails folded for easy shipment, so there will be some assembly required before it can be placed on display. Each replica includes a solid wood base and a brass nameplate that may be used for engraving purposes. It is the perfect sentiment to add to your home or office décor along with other treasures found in the Model Ships section of our website.
The 47" Painted Bluenose II Model Ship from Everything Nautical will only be available while supplies last, so don’t miss out on owning this important piece of Canadian boating history.
