The Tholense hoogars as a type of boat
A hoogaars is sailing ship with a flat bottom that was developed during 18th century in the Netherlands. It was mainly used in fishery at the Zeeland coast.
The history and construction details of the hoogaars are given in the book of Jules Van Beylen, De hoogaars: geschiedenis en bouw, met bouwbeschrijving van een model van de Tholense hoogaars TH 64, De Boer Maritiem, Bussum, Nederland, 1978, ISBN 9022819833.
There is an article about hoogaars in Wikipedia.
The Tholense hoogaars model,
photos, description and dimensions
The model was built to plans of the hoogaars TH 64 that was built in 1907 by the shipyard A. van Duivendijk in Tholen, Zeeland. The plan was published in the book of Jules Van Beylen (see above). The boat was built like a real ship, including the interior timberwork, as can be seen on some photos of the building process. The floor boards and hatch before the mast can be taken out to have a look at the timberwork.
This model of a hoogaars is a beautiful work, a true master piece. It was built
by Jan van den
Heuvel, Philippine (Terneuzen), Netherlands, with great care of details.
The ship model is 1 : 20 scale. Length is 83 cm, width 23 cm, height 75 cm.
The ship can be taken out of the stand, e.g. for transport.
Price of the ship model and transport
The price of the model is 1500 Euro, plus transport cost.
Transport: The ship model can be secured in a transport box. This way, delivery by truck or air cargo over long distances can be safely done.
