The Caravel was a two- to four-mast sailing-ship type from the 14th to the 16th century. Features were 100 to 180 tons of displacement, low draft, high stern and mostly latitude. Caravels were fast and showed very good properties at the wind. The Portuguese and Spanish caravels played a decisive role in the discovery, research and trade along the West African coast and to America. Since the Caravels were fast and manoeuvrable, they were also very popular with pirates.

Since the caravels were fast and manoeuvrable, they were also very popular with pirates. With the ship's hull of ZITERDES, all sailors and pirates, who are enthusiastic about the tabletop, have an ideal base for a glorious ship. ZITERDES has deliberately refrained from further shipbuilding, since each player has his own ideas. With a bit of time and skill, the ship's hull of the caravelle can be equipped with masts and canvas to form a fully-fledged sailing vessel. No fear! This can also be less experienced hobbyists. The hard foam is easy to work with. Quickly holes are drilled for the masts or further details such as ship constructions are positioned and glued. Cutting out the openings for the guns is also less difficult and complex than you think.

  • How-to tip

    You can further develop the ship's hull of the Caravelle according to your wishes and wishes. For the expansion we have the one or the other accessories in the assortment for you. In the accessories section, you will find the matching articles.

    The neutral ship's hull, which is modeled on a Caravel, has been rebuilt in two versions. On the one hand, as a gunboat in the steam-punk look, on the other hand as a typical sailor. Stefan Weil, who has made the conversion of the sailor, has done a lot of work here. With great attention to detail, he took everything out of the ship's hull. The result can be seen in any case.

    Since the ship's hull is made of structural hard foam, it can be sawn and cut. The openings for the ship guns were simply cut out by Stefan with a sharp handy knife. Stefan has cased the cutouts with small wooden inserts additionally.

    Thommy Doll from Thomarillion has also set the knife on his cannon boat variant but renounced the panel. Which can be seen too!

    With the optional accessories and further details such as barrels and crates, further, first-class details can be easily realized. We wish you lots of fun.
