San Eustorgio

Year: 1339 AD
Category: Medieval
Vessel Type: Merchant Ship
Scale: 1/12" = 1 foot
Overall Length: 70 feet

A small coastal trading vessel used in Italy. Ships like this would deliver goods to small town merchants along the coasts of Italy. This could be thought of as the 14th century equivalent to the little brown United Parcel truck - it would deliver goods in a small geographic area but it was not an open road, or in this case, not an open seas or overseas trading vessel.

This ship dates to the year 1339 and could also have been owned by a tradesman or craftsman of some kind. In these days it was not unusual for a blacksmith, cooper or other tradesman to travel in his own ship from town to town along the coast. He would be of service to areas that could not support a full time worker in his trade but needed his talents one or two days in each week.
