L' AURORE was built in 1784 in France by the shipbuilder H. Penevert. The length amounted to 31 m, the width to 8.7 m, the displacement to 500 tons at 4 m draught. From France ships of this kind sailed to the coast of Angola, in order to take over 600 slaves for the journey to Haiti, at that time French colony Saint Domingue. From there colonial goods were bought, usually sugar, and transported to France. In 1789 the slave trade was abolished in France.


This L'AURORE model is one of the eight ship models we delivered to the Morada Seaside Resort at Kuehlungsborn near Rostock on the Baltic coast. It is a beautiful hotel directly at the Baltic Sea beach, and our models are on display in the passage to the restaurant.


This masterpiece of a ship model has been made with great handicraft and much love to details.
The ship model is 1 : 36 scale. Length is 138 cm, height 105 cm. It was made by Mr. Rudolf Ferlemann, Muenster, Germany, Tel. +49 251 24220, r.ferlemann@web.de
