The Hayling hoy of 1760 is a carefully researched model of an original subject at the classic scale of 1:48. This model was constructed as a prototype for a forthcoming book. Made of Castello boxwood, pear and holly, it is fully framed with one side fully planked. The model is rigged and measures 28”L x 28”H x 14W”. Offered on a custom veneered base but uncased. Serious enquiries are invited. More photographs upon request, terms available.

Thank you, gentlemen. All being well, the book should be out by Fall. Plan sheets are completed and the final manuscript is being proofread.


The pedestals are patterned after 18th century ones under models in the Royal Museums Greenwich collection. They are of ebonised wood. Inside each pedestal are two long bolts that engage captive nuts hidden in the model's rising wood and deadwood. The pedestals are, in turn, screwed to the baseboard from below.


While there have been several enquiries about the model, as of today it is still unsold.
