Voiliers de l’Ocean - nautical wonder of Mauritius
Voiliers de l’Ocean welcomes you on the board. On every single boat board exhibited in the showroom. Hip-hip hooray! Time for a pirate adventure! The shop was founded in 1986. Only 5 workers create up to 15 unique ship models per month. The realistic detailed result of their skilled factory products causes the interest among the tourists.
Among other attractions in Mauritius, this shop could be chosen as one of the most unusual places. If you are interested in construction seen in progress you definitely should stop by this shop. Caravels, Frigates and ordinary brigs are made here, hand-crafted. See how the master creates the nautical models.
The display won't leave you unsurprised too. The miniature canvas, masts, anchors, wooden boats will give a splash of your imagination and cause memories of the pirate stories of previous ages, surrounded by the legendary oriole.
Own a ship and see how it is made
Sophisticated manufacturing process takes some time. The master does a scale work, he creates details according to a plan and prepared scheme of the ship. Size is optional. Every rupee spent on the model is worth it. Every single miniature ship made here is an authentic wonder. You may take one as a souvenir after attending a master-class held here.
If you do not want to buy a ship, watching the process and the display of different sized boats and galleons is worth attending.
