This beautiful sailboat with an aspect of a yacht is however a working vessel. Initially destined to the ostreiculture industry for which it worked in channels and sea arms, it also fished with bottom trawling gears common prawns and also captured other species like blue whiting, hake, herring, seabream and sole. The height of its rigging allowed it to catch high winds in the sheltered places where it sometimes fished. Well ballasted by forged cement in its bottom, it was well adapted to its environment thanks to its low draught and how easily it could be set aground.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
