James Cook and his ship ENDEAVOUR

The ENDEAVOUR became known as the expedition ship of James Cook. He started on 25 August 1768 from Plymouth to his study of the South Seas. On that trip he went to Tahiti, Tubuai and other islands, then to New Zealand and the northeast coast of Australia. He finally came to Batavia. Via the Cape of Good Hope he returned to England, where he arrived in the Downs on 12 July 1771.

In Wikipedia there are two fine articles on James Cook and his ship ENDEAVOUR.

In 1993 a replica of the Endeavour has been built in Australia. I took many pictures of that ship when it made a trip to Europe.


The ENDEAVOUR model, photos, description and dimensions

The model was built to plans by Marquardt (Karl-Heinz Marquardt, Captain Cook's Endeavour (Anatomy of the Ship), Conway Maritime Press 2010, ISBN 0851778968). It is a very beautiful true masterpiece, showing fine details in the hull and the rigging.

The ship model is 1 : 45 scale. Length is 110 cm, width 36 cm, height 105 cm.
The ship can be taken out of the stand, i.e. for transport.

There is a set of photos, several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!
