Swedish yacht - Wooden Model Boat


Designed and built as a fast vessel for the use of king Gustav III of Sweden, it was also used in naval battles such as the victorious Battle of Svenskund against the Russians. Launched in 1778, it was built to a design of Fredrik Chapman in the Djurgarden shipyard in Stockholm. Chapman was the first naval architect to codify the desigh of the hull on the basis of precise mathematical ratios, rather than relying exclusively on empirical methods common at that time. The ship was schooner-rigged and this, together with the tape-red line of the hull, gave it exceptional sailing qualities.

 

This model is based on original documents of the period and shows the ship as it looked in 1790.
