The RMS Titanic’s lifeboat model will surely bring back the memory of the most tragic sea disasters in modern history. Lifeboat 7 was a wooden starboard lifeboat and the first one to be lowered from the sinking Titanic. Although there was a capacity of 65 people, it left with only 28 people on board, thus with 37 empty seats. The reason why was that many women and children were reluctant to enter a small wooden lifeboat and preferred to stay on the massive ’unsinkable’, but sinking, Titanic.
This 15-feet long Titanic lifeboat is beautifully hand built from scratch using ’plank on frame’ construction method using the highest grade of western red cedar. It features intricate details such as wooden paddles, footings, thwarts, braces, ropes, flotation devices, rudder, tiller, lifelines, and much more. The model comes with a detachable wood stand and high precision laser engraved nameplate of Liverpool with White Star Line flag and SS Titanic name on the model stern and front bow. Bring home this iconic lifeboat with a history that still echoes in our minds today. A must-have for any collector or enthusiast’s home!

How we build our perfect kayak, canoe & boat
Spyglassshop is invested in the type of construction that recalls generations of boat making. Our commitment has always been and will continue to be, to excellence, to tradition and to creating products that you can enjoy both for their performance and incredible beauty.
Inspired by history, the names of our watercraft are derived from the northern waterways where natives and settlers have used them for centuries. Merging centuries-old customs with improvements in technology, we bring you boats that excel in every category.
Beginning with pliable, high quality Canadian cedar and hardwoods, our craftsmen hand join each individual strip. Hundreds of hours go into the construction of our boats, as perfection is the only option. Once built, the piece is encapsulated in fiberglass epoxy resin adding an extra layer of durability and strength. At last, the water craft is ready for its nautical debut.
