The history of the Anna-Maria


The fluyt ship lies at the center of Dalarö harbour, Sweden. Dalarö harbour has been used since Middle Ages as entrance to Stockholm area. The wreck is 18 m deep and has been identified as the Anna-Maria which sank on 6 February 1709. The ship was built in 1694 in Amsterdam as a fluyt in Dutch style.

In November 1708 she had been loaded with cargo for a trip to Lisbon but was trapped in the harbour by ice. The winter was unusually cold and it was decided to keep her in Dalarö for wintering. A few men were left on board as guards. On 6 February next year, however, when they missed to take care of the ship's fireplace and instead went to a tavern ashore, the ship caught fire and sank in the harbour.

The Anna-Maria model, photos, description and dimensions
 

The model was built to plans of fluyts of the time by a very experienced model maker. The ship model was built with sails like wind abaft the beam on starboard tack. There are more pictures, several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!

This model of Anna-Maria is a beautiful pleasant piece of work, a masterpiece. The rounded lines of the fluyt ship are clearly shown. The sails are expertly presented.
The ship model is 1 : 67 scale. Length is 72 cm, width 28 cm, height 58 cm.

There is a display case for the model made of birch wood and (rather poor, high reflection) acrylic glass which may be used as protection when picking up the model with your car. The display case will not be shipped on air cargo. The case is 80 cm long, 35 cm wide, 62 cm high.

The model looks best when set without a display case.
