I once knew a Sara but not from Bowaters, but she was cheap, very cheap. Half a bottle of Vodka and she was yours, well for the time anyway.

Try this Den.






Sold

63 1/2 Inch X 18 Inch, with height of 22 Inches, 60 Inches High on Stand Dated 1955


Sarah Bowater was a 6600 ton single screw steam newsprint carrier launched in 1955 by Denny Dumbarton for the Bowater Paper Corporation Limited. Home ported in London, the Bowater was used to transport the company's manufactured paper goods world-wide.

This vessel had an overall length of 395 feet with a beam of 58 feet 6 inches and a depth of 35 feet 6 inches. Her single propeller drove the Bowater at a maximum speed of 14 knots.

This well crafted model shows all of the ship's detail with excellent attention to the deck layout and machinery. On the aft cabin house, one of the ship's massive bronze propellers has been stored most likely as a spare.

Hi Mike,
Just recall seeing it on this site.
Thought it was made by a member, but guess not.

Hello Dennis,

Unfortunately the Sarah Bowater Builder's Dockyard model was sold some years ago and is in a private collection where we know the owner is not interested in parting with any of their pieces at this time. However, we will keep your name on file and if the owner comes back to us with a desire to sell at some future date we can let you know.


Do you have an interest in just that particular vessel or are you a collector of Builder's Models? We are always looking for these rare pieces of maritime history and we can keep an eye out for any that would meet your requirements.


Best Regards,

Monica Vallejo
