    Corsair Pirate Ship:
    With its square-rigged foremast and fore-and-aft sails on its main mast, the brigantine was fast, easy to maneuver and had twice the cargo space of a sloop. No wonder it became the favorite vessel of pirates of the Caribbean. A typical brigantine carried as many as 100 pirates and mounted enough cannon to intimidate any possible target.

    Privateers:
    Piracy in the Caribbean came out of the interplay of larger international trends and the use of privateers was especially popular. The cost of maintaining a fleet to defend the colonies was beyond national governments of the 16th and 17th centuries. Private vessels would be commissioned into a 'navy', paid with a substantial share of whatever they could capture from enemy ships and settlements, the rest going to the crown. These ships would operate independently or as a fleet and if successful the rewards could be great —this substantial profit made privateering something of a regular line of business; wealthy businessmen or nobles would be quite willing to finance this legitimized piracy in return for a share. The sale of captured goods was a boost to colonial economies as well.

    Buccaneers:
    Specific to the Caribbean were pirates termed buccaneers which arrived in the 1630s. The original buccaneers were escapees from the colonies; forced to survive with little support, they had to be skilled at boat construction, sailing, and hunting. These skills transferred well into being a pirate. They operated with the partial support of the non-Spanish colonies and until the 1700s their activities were legal, or partially legal and there were irregular amnesties from all nations.

    Traditionally buccaneers had a number of peculiarities. Their crews operated as a democracy: the captain was elected by the crew and they could vote to replace him. The captain had to be a leader and a fighter—in combat he was expected to be fighting with his men, not directing operations from a distance.

    Spoils were evenly divided into shares; when the officers had a greater number of shares, it was because they took greater risks or had special skills. Often the crews would sail without wages—"on account"—and the spoils would be built up over a course of months before being divided. There was a strong esprit de corps among pirates. This allowed them to win sea battles: they typically outmanned trade vessels by a large ratio. There was also for some time a social insurance system, guaranteeing money or gold for battle wounds at a worked-out scale.

    In combat they were considered ferocious and were reputed to be experts with flintlock weapons, but these were so unreliable that they were not in widespread military use before the 1670s.

    The end of the classic age of Piracy:

    The decline of piracy in the Caribbean paralleled the decline of mercenaries and the rise of national armies in Europe. Following the end of the Thirty Years' War national power expanded. Armies were codified and brought under Royal control and privateering was largely ended; the navies were expanded and their mission was stretched to cover combating piracy. The elimination of piracy from European waters expanded to the Caribbean in the 1700s, West Africa and North America by the 1710s and by the 1720s even the Indian Ocean was a difficult location for pirates.

    Baltimore Clipper Harvey
    Baltimore Clipper Harvey:
  • 37" long x 12" Wide x 29" High (1:42 scale)
  • Hollow-hull/plank on frame construction (a painstaking process where each individual plank is added to the hull one at a time).
  • Built with rare, high quality woods such as walnut, cherry, rosewood, teak, birch and maple.
  • Perfectly taught rigging with varied thread color and thickness.
  • 10 masterfully stitched, thick canvass sails that hold their shape and do not wrinkle
  • Meticulously hand painted to the actual Harvey
  • Machine turned brass cannons and metal anchors
  • Amazing details – tied down deck cannons, planked deck with nail holes, cannon ball racks, buckets, barrels, authentic lifeboats, rudder chains and more.
  • Rests perfectly on a large wood base between four arched dolphins (marble base pictured).
  • To build this ship, extensive research was done using various sources such as the original plans, drawings, paintings and pictures.
  • The US Warships were a fairly new breed that introduced many new innovations in the 1800’s. Lightly gunned Frigates such as the Constitution, Constellation and Essex proved they were able to outclass the huge lumbering British warships with their speed and maneuverability.

    During the War of 1812, an even newer class of US Warship emerged out of Chesapeake Bay. They were known as the Baltimore Packets, but soon became the Baltimore Clipper. These schooners were lightly gunned, sleek and very fast. So fast they could sail almost directly into the wind at full speed!

    The Harvey exemplified this class of roving privateers, overtaking and capturing British merchantmen laden with cargo to support the British expeditionary forces then attempting to recapture the former colonies. The Harvey was also used during the California gold rush, when it ran blockades and transported valuable cargo from New York to San Francisco.

  • Batavia was the flagship of a convoy under the command of Francois Pelsaert, bound for the United Dutch East India Company. On its maiden voyage, it wrecked in 1629 on Morning Reef, off the West Australian coast. Most of the ship's crew and passengers were able to reach the nearby islands. Batavia was also the old name for Indonesia's capital, Jakarta. Today, part of the Batavia wreckage lies preserved for all to see in the Geraldton Maritime Museum, in Western Australia. In 1985, a group set about to build an exact sized replica of the Batavia. It took 10 years, to build a life-size, true replica where everything works, including the guns. This life-size replica of the Batavia is moored at the National Maritime Museum in Sydney, Australia. : A0702:

This was in response to a Nova Scotian ship's defeat in a race for working schooners established by the Halifax Herald newspaper in 1920. After a season fishing on the Grand Banks, Bluenose defeated the ship Elsie from Gloucester, Massachusetts, returning the trophy to Nova Scotia. During the next 17 years of racing no challenger, American or Canadian, could wrest the trophy from her.: B0402:

    During her 80 years and 37 voyages, the Charles W. Morgan caught and processed more whales than any other whaling ship in history. Built in 1841 at the Hillman Brothers Shipyard on the Accent River in New Bedford, MA, she was registered at 351 tons. The Morgan was originally built fully ship-rigged, but shortly after the Civil War she was modified to become a double topsail bark. Her whaling days came to end in 1921 with the decline of whale oil prices. Purchased for Mystic Seaport in 1941, she's now a beautifully restored monument to the men who built and sailed her.: A2003C:

  • CSS Alabama was a screw sloop-of-war built for the Confederacy in 1862 by John Laird Sons and Company, Liverpool, England. Launched as Enrica, it was fitted out as a cruiser and commissioned 24 August 1862 as CSS Alabama. Under Captain Raphael Semmes, Alabama spent the next two months capturing and burning ships in the North Atlantic and intercepting American grain ships bound for Europe. Continuing the path of destruction through the West Indies, Alabama sank USS Hatteras along the Texas coast and captured her crew. After a visit to Cape Town, South Africa, Alabama sailed for the East Indies where the ship spent six months cruising, destroying seven more ships before redoubling the Cape en route to Europe.

    On 11 June 1864, Alabama arrived in Cherbourg, France and Captain Semmes requested permission to dock and overhaul his ship. Pursuing the raider, the American sloop-of-war USS Kearsarge arrived three days later and took up a patrol just outside the harbor. On 19 June, Alabama sailed out to meet Kearsarge. As Kearsarge turned to meet its opponent, Alabama opened fire. Kearsarge waited patiently until the range had closed to less than 1,000 yards. According to survivors, the two ships steamed on opposite courses moving around in circles as each commander tried to cross the bow of his opponent to deliver a heavy raking fire. The battle quickly turned against Alabama because of the poor quality of its powder and shells, while Kearsarge benefitted from the additional protection of chain cables along its sides. A little more than an hour after the first shot was fired, Alabama was reduced to a sinking wreck, causing Semmes to strike his colors and send a boat to surrender. According to witnesses, Alabama fired 150 rounds at its adversary, while Kearsarge fired 100. When a shell fired by Kearsarge tore open a section at Alabama's waterline, the water quickly rushed through the cruiser, forcing it to the bottom. While Kearsarge rescued most of Alabama's survivors, Semmes and 41 others were picked up by the British yacht Deerhound and escaped to England. During its two-year career as a commerce raider, Alabama caused disorder and devastation across the globe for United States merchant shipping. The Confederate cruiser claimed more than 60 prizes valued at nearly $6,000,000.: A2103C:

    Cutty Sark Limited Edition
    Cutty Sark Limited Edition:
  • 44" long x 11" Wide x 27" High (1:78 scale)
  • Real authentically aged COPPER PLATED hull and painted like the actual Cutty Sark
  • Requires hundreds of hours to build from scratch (not from a model kit) by our master artisans.
  • Plank on frame construction (a painstaking process where each individual plank is added to the hull one at a time).
  • Built with rare, high quality woods such as southwest cherry, white orchis wood, birch, maple and rosewood.
  • The model rests perfectly on a large slate base between four arched dolphins.
  • Masterfully stitched canvas sails.
  • No plastic fittings.
  • Significant deck detail.
  • To build this ship, extensive research was done using various sources such as museums, drawings, copies of original plans and photos of the actual ship.
  • The Cutty Sark was launched on November 22, 1869, in Dumbarton on the Scottish Clyde. She was built to carry tea in the China Run. Due to a new hull shape that was stronger, could take more sail and be driven harder than any other, the Cutty Sark was the fastest ship taking the Cape of Good Hope Route. Her name comes from Robert Burns' poem, Tam O' Shanter. Tam meets a group of witches, most of whom are ugly, but for Nannie, who is young and beautiful and is described as wearing only a "cutty sark" (a short chemise or shirt).

    Although her early years under her first master, Captain George Moodie, saw some sterling performances, fate was to thwart her owner's hopes of glory in the tea trade: in the very same year of her launching, the Suez Canal was opened, allowing steamers to reach the Far East via the Mediterranean, a shorter and quicker route not accessible to sailing ships, whose freights eventually fell so much that the tea trade was no longer profitable. So Cutty Sark's involvement in the China run was short lived, her last cargo of tea being carried in 1877.

    For the next several years, the Cutty Sark was forced to seek cargoes where she could get them, and it was not until 1885 that she began the second (and more illustrious) stage of her career. The ship's heyday was in the Australian wool trade, which was overseen by Captain Richard Woodget, from 1885 to 1895.
