Bluenose II Painted L Model Y095 by Old Modern Handicrafts

The Bluenose II was the successor of the original Bluenose built in 1921 by Nova Scotia. It is an iconic schooner for the Canadian Maritime Provinces. You may find an image of the Bluenose on a Canadian dime. This model will make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector. 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. The Bluenose II is beautifully painted in a rosewood color with an upper black hull. The masts and booms are painted yellow. All the sails are stitched and meticulously rigged. On the deck, there are authentic lifeboats with ribs and planks. The bowsprit goes through the gunwale and are kept secured with riggings. On the deck, you can see several wooden cabins, companion ways and hatches. There are also metal “Bluenose II” nameplates attached to hull. It is truly a remarkable representation of the Bluenose II. The model is secured tightly on a solid wood base with a brass nameplate. The masts and sails are folded down for easy packaging and shipping. Assembly may take about 30 minutes or more.

History: In its day, there was no yacht like the Bluenose II, a fishing schooner that combined efficiency, beauty and speed. It was built in Nova Scotia in 1921 to fish the rough waters off the coast of Newfoundland. It would stay out on the sea until its holds were full of cod, using salt to preserve its catch. But the Bluenose left its mark in history as a racing ship. For 17 straight years it won the International Fisherman’s Trophy, awarded to the winner of races among real fishing schooners that worked the Grand Banks. The races created a heated rivalry between the greatest deep-sea schooners from Newfoundland in Canada and those from Gloucester, Mass. With Capt. Angus Walters at its helm, the Bluenose II prevailed year after a year and it became an enduring symbol of the maritime spirit. The Bluenose II was lost off Haiti in 1946.
