SS EUROPA

SS Europa was a German ocean liner built for the Norddeutsche Lloyd line (NDL). She and her sister ship, Bremen, were the two most advanced, high speed steam turbine ocean vessels in their day.

Europa was built in 1929. As part of the international competition for the Blue Riband, she was designed with high speed steam turbine engines, a bulbous bow, and a low streamlined profile. Europa and Bremen cruised at 27.5 knots, allowing an Atlantic crossing time of 5 days. This enabled Norddeutsche Lloyd to run regular weekly crossings with only two ships, a feat that normally required three.

Europa made her maiden voyage to New York on 19 March 1930. She took away the westbound Blue Riband from SS Bremen with the average speed of 27.91 knots and a crossing time of 4 days, 17 hours and 6 minutes.  

After WWII, SS Europa was transferred to France in partial payment of war reparations.

   
   
   



Like all of our ocean liner models, this Europa ocean liner model  features:

- Plank-on-frame (very important), weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 30 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

-  No computer-printed paper deck

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
.

38" long x 13.5 tall x 7 wide (including base)   Out of stock.

Add light feature:  $200        
(Cord can be unplugged from base for displaying without light.  Adjustable brightness level.)
