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.
This is a great model of a Shrimp Boat. It was handmade from strips of teak and mahogany and then painted in black and white. There are fishing nets on both side of the hull with wooden crates. The cabin is painted white with tinted blue windows. You will also find an anchor placed on top of the deck along with other boat gears. The nets together with the mast and rigging really make this boat special.
This model is secured on a solid wooden base with a brass nameplate. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.

Seen across the Gulf of Mexico and featured in the movie Forrest Gump, shrimp boats are known by the phrase “By night they work the nets, and by day they rest and clean”. They anchor up just after dawn and begin cleaning their decks and holds of by-catch and trash fish. They are the shrimp boats that spend the night dragging their nets for pink gold. By night they work the nets, and by day they rest and clean.
