Mayflower Model Boat Small
This Item Is Currently Out Of Stock!
The Mayflower brought the first group of Pilgrims to North America in 1620.
As originally conceived, the expedition included another vessel, the Speedwell,
but the latter proved unseaworthy. The Mayflower, about 180 gross tons, and
carrying 102 passengers, the Mayflower finally got under way from Plymouth,
England, on September 16, 1620. The ship was headed for Virginia, where the
colonists had been authorized to settle, but as a result of stormy weather and
navigational errors, the vessel failed to make good its course, and on November
21 the Mayflower rounded the end of Cape Cod and dropped anchor off the site
of present-day Provincetown, Massachusetts. No one knows exactly what the ship
looked like, but it was probably about 27 m (90 ft) long, had three masts and
two decks, and probably weighed about 180 tons.
