One of the relatively “modern” lightships, LV 116, also known as the Chesapeake was reproduced by Harbour Lights in 1997, in a limited edition of 4,000. Although now a closed edition, this beautiful rendition portrayed the elegance of the lightship. Built in 1930, the Chesapeake was driven by electric-powered diesel engines, and illuminated by powerful electric lens lanterns at each masthead. Retired in 1970, visitors can see this amazing ship in the Inner Harbour in Baltimore, Maryland.
Cold cast resin boat model. Does not come with display case.
