Nautilus Submarine Model from “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea”
This is museum quality model of the Nautilus from the famous books of Jules Verne and movie “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea”. SavyBoat handcrafts this nicely detailed model from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plan. We use top quality wood such as teak, mahogany, and coppers to build this model. Our master craftsmen precisely crafted 100s of individual copper pieces joined together, not many artists dare to do that.
This piece of art has detailed interior and lighted inside. Building this museum quality Nautilus requires more than 500 of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. We mount the model on solid wood base and ready to display.
Nautilus is described by Verne as “a masterpiece containing masterpieces”. It is designed and commanded by Captain Nemo. This ship is the fictional submarine, featured in Jules Verne’s novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), The Mysterious Island (1874) and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Verne named the Nautilus after Robert Fulton’s real-life submarine Nautilus (1800). Three years before writing his novel, Jules Verne also studied a model of the newly developed French Navy submarine Plongeur at the 1867 Exposition Universelle, which inspired him for his definition of the Nautilus. This submarine is designed double-hulled and is further separated into water-tight compartments. Its top speed is 50 knots. Its displacement is 1,356.48 French freight tons emerged (1,507 submerged).
