Project Description

The 115ft Pelican was built at Le Havre as an Arctic trawler shortly after the First World War. The fine lines of her hull made her a perfect candidate for conversion to sail and in 1995 she was purchased by her present owner to provide sail training facilities combined with accommodation for charter.

In 2006 I was commissioned to design and carve the figurehead of a Pelican and trail boards of scrolling acanthus.

This figurehead is not for sale but similar commissions can be undertaken.
