    My neighbor has a model and from this model he like to build something larger approx 6 meter long. The model had 3 masts, but only one is left over and a broken one on the table, but he does not know the height etc. Is there anybody who can recognize this model and know even the name of such boat, and any information, he would be very great-full.

    Reminds me of the "Vasa" (Sweden, ca 1600, you can wikipedia it).
    You might want to re-think this over and double check all the stability etc. before you build.

    Among Buccaneer ships were captured Men-of-War, but basically they used whatever they could lay their hands on . . .

    Buccaneer ship replicas and toys however are often too badly detailed to determine an exact type, as it's often just about the general idea . . . .

    Willem van de Velde was indeed a superb artist. The detail in his paintings are spectacular. He must have been a deranged boat guy like so many of us here on the forum.

    Thank you, yes it looks about right, but the front shows more like a Asian type of yacht. I am not going to mention what you said about re-thinking the stability. I know what my neighbor will say: Bert please can you calculate it and then I sit for weeks to measure and work out the stability. I did that for my own boat, what a job. I leave that over to my neighbor. Thanks for the reply.

    there was a fad in 1960s or 70s, or maybe it was late 1950s, of homebuilding "pirate" style boats of about that size. Fore and aft cabins and open deck between. Didn't seem to practical and I'd bet the novelty wore off fast, but they did have a following so who knows. Maybe they were nice for "picnic" boating, and thus quite practical.
    I'd look into Sharpie and add a few touches.
