Discover the Sultan, a wooden model kit of this traditional Arab dhow of the Arabian Peninsula, Indian and East African coasts. An essential instrument in trade and the spreading of the Islamic faith, the Dhow was used primarily as a cargo vessel, from grain and fish to slaves or minerals. Guided by our detailed step by step instructions you can complete your model of this elegant vessel.


The exact origin of the Dhow is unknown, although his appearance seems to be linked to Islam. Revolutionary in naval history for their triangular and virtually unchanged from their initial designs sails, it is believed that the Dhow was the germ for the construction of the Venetian galleys and caravels, promoting the creation of larger ships with mixed sails. The dhows still sail along the coasts of the Indian Ocean.


Build your 1/85 scale model of the Sultan, an elegant two-masted Arabian Dhow. Its construction system using false keel and frames brings the assembly of your model closer to the construction of the actual ship. The model includes laser cut board pieces, hardwood, brass, die-cast and fabric. For the assembly you can follow our complete full-color step by step guide in 7 languages.
