The Sirius ship from The Adventures Of Tintin
The Sirius was a trawler used by Tintin, Captain Haddock and Cuthbert Calculus during the treasure expedition searching for the treasure of Red Rackham. It is featured in Red Rackham’s Treasure.
The Sirius, was named after the SS Sirius, the first ship to cross the Atlantic Ocean solely under steam power, but was visually based upon the design of the John-O.88, a trawler launched in 1936. It sunk in 1941 after being attached by German fighter planes. Hergé had sketched this ship in Ostend docks before obtaining both detailed plans of the trawler from its builders, Jos Boel & Son, and a small-scale model from a collector.
