The Schooner "Alma Doepel" ~ 1903

Windjammers Around The Australian Coast: Past & Present ~ Series 1

This beautifully produced series of maritime art - Windjammer Lithographs from Richard Linton's original pencil sketches are printed in two colours on high quality heavy weight archival paper, giving a rich sepia tone.

The series consists of the following windjammers:

"Alma Doepel" is a wooden schooner built in 1903 on the riverbank near the Bellingen Public Wharf, New South Wales. Her home port was Hobart. She measured 115 feet overall - 100 feet on keel, with a 26 foot beam. Except for the masts and spars all the timbers used at the time were local Bellingen timbers.

After her long distinguished career around the Australian coast from 1903 to 1975, she was purchased by a syndicate and brought to Melbourne for the purpose of restoration. She sails today beautifully restored for the benefit of Australian Youth Sail Training and has often been seen on Port Phillip Bay.
