Repro ID: H0407
Description: On 30 April 1985 a replica of the 'Godspeed' departed London to begin her journey across the Atlantic in commemoration of the original voyage some 379 years earlier. No records of the original lines of 'Godspeed' exist, but the replica vessel was as close a representation of a 17th-century sailing ship as was possible. She was designed by Duncan Stewart and built by Carl Pederson and his crew. The keel was laid on 14 May 1982 and the ship christened on 12 May 1984. She is shown here passing the Royal Naval College at Greenwich.
