About: Will Everard

Will Everard 80 ton barque.

Wooden hull, 1:67 scale, 19.29″ H 22.83″ L 4.72″ W

The original name of this vessel was Will Everard. Built in 1925-1926 for F.T. Everard & Sons at Great Yarmouth, the “Will” was the last of four 280 ton barques. The ship was built with a hull of steel and was used be the Everard family for over 40 years for coastal navigation along the Eastern coast of England, the islands and the English Channel. A diesel engine was installed in 1951, but in 1967 it was decided to take the “Will” out of service. After nine years at rest, the “Will” was bought in 1976 by Overseas Container Ltd..

Since then, the vessel has sailed in European waters, rounding England several times and visiting over 50 ports on the Continent – sailing as a living memory of sailing ships from times past and giving impressive publicity for the owners.

The Will Everard Kit includes laser cut wooden hull and wooden strips, fittings set, sails, rigging thread, plan and manual. Kit includes laser cut wooden hull and wooden strips, fittings set, sails, rigging thread, plan and manual. 80 ton barque.

All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull.

The Will Everard hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!

Paints used on this model boat kit are: BB#1, BB#3, BB#5, BB#7, BB#9, BB#11, BB#13, BB#14, BB#17, BB#36, + BB#40 thinner
