We built the 40% sized replica of the ship Captain James Cook sailed to the new world, using Oak frames, Larch planking and Douglas Fir decking.  You can see her sailing out of Whitby Harbour most days carrying visitors to see Whitby from the sea.

The ship's name is partially derived from its traditional 'bark‘ construction, whereby larch planks were meticulously steamed into shape and fastened onto a solid English oak frame. She measures nearly I4 metres in length and 4 metres in width, which is approximately 40% of the original ship‘s size.

Complete with hardwood decks throughout. there are three masts carved from Douglas Fir; These include the 'mizzen’ at the rear, the 'fore‘ mast at the front and the larger ‘main' mast in the centre - which stands some 12 metres above the deck.

Considerable attention to detail was given throughout the construction to ensure that the ship authentically replicates the many features of the original vessel.

Bark Endeavour Whitby is powered by two 6 cylinder, 120 HP engines which enables a travelling speed of 9 knots, she is fully equipped with the latest safety aids and navigation instruments to enable a secure passage at all times.
