FLYING DUTCHMAN-model ships #Westcoast Solid Wood Furniture in Nanaimo

Inspiring from the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean”, we decide to build the model Flying Dutchman. Our model is very skinful hand-crafted from hard wood with planks on frame construction and the outside of the hull is made very rough like the real ship in the movie. The model is ready for display which comes with the pirate flag and the base


The Flying Dutchman (Dutch: De Vliegende Hollander) is a legendary ghost ship that can never make port and is doomed to sail the oceans forever. The myth is likely to have originated from the 17th-century golden age of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). The oldest extant version has been dated to the late 18th century.  Sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries reported the ship to be glowing with ghostly light. If hailed by another ship, the crew of the Flying Dutchman will try to send messages to land, or to people long dead. In ocean lore, the sight of this phantom ship is a portent of doom.
