Model ship building in Mauritius

Mauritius' model ship building industry was improved to a high art. You can find almost every historic ship, like the Mayflower or the Gorch Fock

Model ships

The ships are built true to scale, partly based on original blueprints. Although some parts of the production remind of an industrial production, the most part requires handcraft.  

Specifically, the rigging must be knotted manually with great sensitivity. As a special service, the ships will be packed ready to leave, including the customs documents and if you like the frames for a glass cabinet.
