It is a FULLY ASSEMBLED replica of a Boston Tender, a classic rowing boat believed to have originated along the New York waterfront in the early 1800s. It looks and feels like a miniature real boat. This 24.5-inch model is strip built from the highest quality of woods by master artisans using plank on frame construction, just like real boats. Each model takes more than 50 hours to construct and undergoes a demanding quality-control process. Among the details of this boat model: interior ribs, four oars, oar holders, seats, brass nameplate and stand. The boat is wood, through and through!
