Corel Amphion 18th Century Swedish Yacht AASM20
Designed and built as a fast vessel for the use of King Gustav III of Sweden, the Amphion was also used in naval battles such as the Battle of Svenskund, playing a role in the defeat of the Russians. Launched in 1778, she was built to a design of Fredrik Chapman in the Djurgarden shipyard in Stockholm. Chapman was the first naval architect to codify the design of the hull on the basis of precise mathematical ratios, rather than relying exclusively on empirical methods common at that time. The ship was schooner-rigged and this, together with the tapered line of the hull, gave her exceptional sailing qualities. The Corel model is based on original documents of the period and shows the ship as it looked in 1790.

The Corel Amphion wooden ship model is an accurate reproduction of the real Swedish Yacht. This plank-on-frame wood ship model kit by Corel is double-planked in limewood and walnut, with laser-cut wooden keel and frames. Other wooden parts are provided in beech, tanganyka and mahogany. Fittings are rendered in brass, hardwood and gilded metal. Twelve brass swivel guns, rigging line, sailcloth and display base with gilded metal nameplate are all included. The kit also includes seven sheets of plans and a well-illustrated instruction booklet.
