Product Description

Elevate your decor with classical antiquity art styles, and transform any space into your own private history museum with this impressive replica of a Roman Galley from the time of the Battle of Actium, in 31 BC. in a scale of 1:40.

Galleys were rowing warships used by the Romans. They remained the dominant types of vessels used for war and piracy in the Mediterranean Sea until the last decades of the 16th century. As warships, galleys carried various types of weapons throughout their long existence, including rams and catapults, but also relied on their large crews to overpower enemy vessels in boarding actions

The ship's design was based on pictures, illustrations, pottery scenes and ancient scripts. First the frame is designed from scratch and cut. The wood used for the keel and the supporting traverse beams is plywood, while the hull is made of oak of 1.5 mm thickness. Then the ship is assembled using wood spines.

After the first laying of the oak planks the hull is smoothed over. This is followed by a second layer of oak planks with waterproofing material in between in order to achieve 100% functionality and watertightness. The total thickness of the body of the ship exceeds 3 mm. The ram is made of brass as in the original ships. All the details on the ship as stairs, sails, shields, ropes, oars, etc. are handmade from scratch.
