Discover Sultan, a wooden model of this traditional Arabian dhow from the coasts of the Arabian Peninsula, India and East Africa. This ship was the primary instrument in the commerce and in the propagation of the Islamic faith. Also, the dhow was mainly used as cargo ship, from grain and fish to slaves or minerals.

The exact origin of the dhow is unknown, although its appearance seems to be linked to Islam. Revolutionary in naval history for its triangular sails and practically unchanged since its initial designs, it is believed that the dhow was the germ for the construction of Venetian galleys and caravels, favoring the creation of larger ships with mixed sails. The dhows are still sailing along the shores of the Indian Ocean.


The modeling kit of the Sultan dhow contains everything necessary for the model to be a faithful reflection of the original ship, thanks mainly to its design by false keel and frames. It is a 1:85 scale model, an elegant two-sided boat primordial in naval modeling.
