Launched in 1690, the San Felipe was entrusted with a variety of duties of which she performed during the war against the British and French.

She helped to protect the beloved Spanish settlements and harbors, transport riches and treasures, and safeguard the long and hazardous passage back to the Spanish ports.

Although a perilous warship, the San Felipe was balanced with beauty and design.

All of our model ships and boats are handmade from scratch.

They are built by very skillful and experienced craftsmen. They are also built according to the scale of the original full sized ships. We do this through the use of original plans or pictures and use a plank on frame construction method. The hull of our ships are joined by multiple pieces of dry thin wood.

Inside of the hull, we use a special glue that is imported just for this purpose. The glue makes the wood strips stay close together so that they will not split, crack or twist which can happen due to weather changes or humidity changes.

Our models are built completely for raw materials, NOT kits. We recommend that you purchase a display stand for each ship that you purchase to protect it from harm.
