Members’ Behind the Scenes Tour: Half Hull Ship Models

January 25, 2018

Members are invited to join Vice President of Research Collections Paul O’Pecko on a tour of the Museum’s impressive collection of half hull ship models. Traditionally, shipbuilders would craft half models to provide a three-dimensional reference for their ship design. In more recent years, the practice has evolved into an art form. The Museum’s collection includes vessels by famous designers such as Olin Stephen and the Herreshoffs, as well as models of historic vessels such as the Charles W. Morgan.
