Whaleboats were put in the water by the large whale ships. They closed in on the fish by sail and oar to throw the harpoon. The boats are relatively narrow and pointed at both ends, enabling them to be moved either forwards or backwards equally well.

The model was built to plans of the French Service Historique de la Défense gebaut,  

This model of a whaleboat is a small elegant masterpiece, built by a very experienced ship modeller.
