This is a French "bisquine" from the 17th Century. The bisquine vessels are easy to identify due to their characteristic shape and extensive sails. The hull design can be traced back to that of French and English cutters from the late 17th Century.
The kit includes laser cut frames for keel & bulkheads, and wood strips for hull planking. Also included is the wooden deck planking, masts and spars, metal and wooden fittings, and sail material.
