Unusual ornamental rowboat with clinker build that adds creative flair and atmosphere to any room.

Use as display shelves or fun cabinets or book cases.

Originally designed to be dispatched to collect victuals for the captain’s table or canvas for a sail blown away in a storm, gigs were invaluable when in port or moored outside.

Referred to as rowboats by land-bound folk, a gig was easy to lower overboard from a larger ship, needed minimum crew, and was quick to dispatch.

When stowed, it nested in the long boat or pilot boat secured in the center of the main deck.

The Authentic Models lapstrake (overlapping strips of wood) gigs are not seaworthy, but they most certainly look like it.
