Wander Bird Pilot Schooner Ship Wooden Model 38"

This high quality, highly detailed, expert level, Wander Bird ship model is Brand New, fully assembled and ready for display (not a kit).

Wander Bird Pilot Schooner Ship Wood Model SailboatThis Wander Bird pilot schooner model was specially designed & built by the plank on frame method (joining multiple small pieces of Mahogany wood together on the hull). The sailboat model is built exactly to scale as the original Wander Bird was with many details. The task required skillful craftsmen hundreds of hours to accomplish.

The hand sanded mahogany hull has white topsides and very dark blue bottom paint. Rigging on the Wander Bird is very detailed with coiled lines, rat lines and dock lines stored on deck. The schooner is mounted on a solid wood base with a metal nameplate.

Built as the pilot schooner "Elbe 5" after a design by Gustav Junge at the H.C. Stlcken & Sohn shipyard in Hamburg, GER in 1883. She retired from pilot service in 1924 and was purchased by author Warwick Tompkins in 1928.

The schooner was  commissioned as a cruising yacht and sail training vessel in 1929 and renamed the "Wander Bird". She made a total of 13 trans-Atlantic crossings in this time, in 1936 Tompkins sailed her around Cape Horn to San Francisco Bay, after a voyage to Tahiti, Tompkins laid the schooner up in Sausalito, California in 1941 where she became a houseboat for his ex-wife.

In 1969 she was purchased by Harold and Anna Sommers. Who restored her and fitted the yacht with it's first engine. They sailed Wander Bird for the first time in June, 1981. The schooner was not used much by the Sommers and was offered for sale in 1992, after some unsuccessful trials to sell her back to Germany she departed Sausalito for Seattle in October 1998, the new owners Jim Flury and David Cook intended to offer charter cruises in Mexican waters but instead chartered her to a non-profit group in Seattle to serve as a sail training ship and goodwill ambassador for the city, this program never got started but the schooner remained in Seattle.

On initiative of the "Stiftung Hamburg Maritime" the ship returned to Hamburg on October 7, 2002 where an overhaul of electrical equipment began and the rigging and deck were be checked, all necessary work was done in the context of the project "Jugend in Arbeit Hamburg e.V.". Since 2004 the Wander Bird has been used as charter ship for day trips and longer voyages.

The model measures 38" long from bow to stern. It's a beautiful ship model that will be a conversation piece for any room or office.
