The kåg, a typical craft along the west coast of Sweden
The kåg model, photos, description and dimensions
This model was built by J.P. van den Heuvel in the
years 2010 and 2011 to the plans and scantlings, as found in the book
“Kågen” (see above), containing the complete documentation of the
building of this boat. The model was built in all of its timberwork like
a real ship. The model is a masterpiece.

29 cm, height is 88 cm (model stand
The ship can be taken out of the stand, e.g. for transport.
There are several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!
