The Dutch barges for inland water ways

Several types of flat bottom barges were developed in the Netherlands and northern Germany that were used in cargo transport on big rivers like the Rhine and on canals. By the end of the 19th century many of the barges were no longer built from wood but iron. The Dutch "Klipperaak" had a large rudder blade to allow for steering at slow speed and leeboards to reduce drift.



The model of the Klipperaak Sophia of Utrecht, photos, description and dimensions

The model was built to plans of an aak as they were common in Holland by 1890. 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 clipper aak is a very beautiful, fine piece of work, a masterpiece. The full lines of the hull are clearly shown in the model, even the rivets of the iron plates are worked out. The rigging is made exquisitely.
The ship model is 1 : 50 scale. Length is 78 cm, width 18 cm, height 60 cm.

The ship model can be taken out of the stand, e.g. for transport.
