Few may recognize the HMS Bounty by name alone, and fewer still know what actually happened aboard the HMS Bounty. The HMS Bounty Model Ship features a ship whose crew mutinied when they decided they would rather remain in Tahiti. Replicating the HMS Bounty, thankfully without its mutinous crew, this model displays impressive realism and detail. Built from scratch by master artisans, this model features Royal Navy flags, 4 cannons, and cloth sails. Hand-crafted from quality woods such as cherry, birch, maple, and rosewood, this model is an excellent piece of decor for any home or office.

Key Features

  • This is NOT a Kit - Comes Fully Assembled
  • Handcrafted by Skilled Artisans
  • Built Using High Quality Materials
  • Includes Wooden Base with Metal Nameplate

A Brief History of the HMS Bounty

In 1787, the HMS Bounty was sent to Tahiti to collect sapling breadfruit trees and transport them to the West Indies as a cheap source of food for the plantation workers. The Admiralty picked 33-year-old Lt. William Bligh to lead the mission. After arriving in Tahiti, Bligh and the crew set about collecting more than 1,000 breadfruit plants to take to the Caribbean. They spent five months in Tahiti, during which time Bligh allowed many of the crew to live ashore. Without the discipline and rigid schedules of the sea, the men went native.

Two weeks out of Tahiti, miserable with having left the Tahitian wife he took while there, First Mate Fletcher Christian took over the ship. Of the 44 men on board, 31 sided with Bligh. Of the 31, 18 were set adrift in the longboat with Bligh. The mutineers in the HMS Bounty then set off for Tahiti, where they put the rest of the sailors loyal to Bligh ashore, picked up their Tahitian wives, girlfriends, and several Tahitian men, and set off to hide from the law.

Bligh navigated the longboat 3,600 miles to safety in 41 days using only a sextant and a pocket watch. Only one man died. The voyage was a feat of navigation that is unparalleled to this day.

The mutineers eventually settled on Pitcairn Island, an isolated rock in the South Pacific that was misplaced on British charts. They burned the ship in Bounty Bay and were not found for 25 years.
