Ship ahoy! Unique shipments in practice
How do you transport a 241 year old ship model, worth € 29,000? Private individual Mr. Gerrit van Kolthoorn ran into this challenge in January 2012. Buying is one thing, but getting the replica without dent or scratch from Boston (USA) to Elburg (the Netherlands) is a second.
The ship model is a 241 year old replica (1:48 scale) of the type 24 cannon ship. The model is in excellent condition and has the original color.The original ship probably sailed between England and India.
