Project Description

PELICAN of LONDON FIGUREHEAD

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. She was purchased by her present owner in 1995, for conversion to a sail training ship.

In 2006 I was commissioned to design and carve the figurehead of a Pelican and trail boards of scrolling acanthus. The ship now provides sail training facilities combined with accommodation for charter.
