The French brig Euryale of 1804
The Euryale was launched in Granville, France, in 1804. She was one of twenty brigs that were designed by the shipbuilder Pestel. Of one of her sister ships, the Le Cygne, there is a contemporary 1 : 36 scale model in the Musée de la Marine in Paris. The two brigs had a slightly different armament. While the Le Cygne had 14 carronades of 24 pound and two long range guns of 8 pounds, the Euryale had 16 guns of 6 pounds.
The Euryale model, photos, description and dimensions
The model built to the plans of Boudriot for the sister ship Le Cygne: Jean Boudriot & Hubert Berti, Monographie du Cygne - Brick - 1806, ANCRE publishing company. In the gunnery, however, the 16 guns were shown instead of the carronades of the Le Cygne.
This model is a rare masterpiece. The elegant form of the ship is clearly shown in the model. It was built by Rudolf Ferlemann, Münster, Germany, with much love to details.
The brig model is 1 : 48 scale.
Length is 120 cm, width 40 cm, height 93 cm.
Price of the ship model and transport
The price of the model is 12000 Euro, plus transport cost.
Transport: The ship model can be secured in a transport box. This way,
truck or air cargo over long distances can be safely done.
If you live close by, picking up the model with your car may be a good way, too.
The ship model is available from Mr. Rudolf Ferlemann, Münster, Germany. As he only speaks very little English, please contact me, if you are interested in the ship model.
