The trading ship as a symbol of the Hanseatic League

The Hanseatic League was a medieval commercial and defensive confederation of merchant guilds and market towns in Northern Europe. Growing from some north German towns in the late 12th century, the League ultimately covered nearly 200 settlements across northern Europe at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries.

The Hanseatic League ship of 1470 is a symbol of that important historical epoch. In 15th century the clinker-built Hansa cogs were more and more replaced by larger carvel-built ships like the one shown here.

A conserved cog ship of 1380 that was found in Bremen in 1962 is shown in The Deutsche Schiffahrtsmuseum (Maritime Museum of Germany) in Bremerhaven. A cog ship model is placed at the stern of the original ship.



The Hanseatic League ship model, photos, description and dimensions

The ship model shown here was built to plans by Heinrich Winter. The sails are set like running free before the wind. 

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 the Hanseatic League ship is a very beautiful, fine piece of work. The ship model is 1 : 50 scale. Length is 65 cm, width 27 cm, height 57 cm.
