This model represents a similar long ship to that found near the village of Skuldelev in Denmark, which is known as Skuldelev 2. The original was constructed primarily of oak wood about the year 1060 in Dublin. The ship was 30 metres long with a width of 3.8 metres. The ship could sail with 60-100 Viking warriors onboard and was driven by a large rectangular sail. In the case of no wind, there were 60 oars.
