Xebek who actively built since the mid-17th century, were used as trade and warships. Displacement of 250 tons, they are usually armed with 24-packs guns and take on board up to 350 people.
Xebek were the fastest and most agile ships of the Mediterranean, easily outperforming the large and slow ships. In calm xebek hoping for 10-20 pairs of oars, which allowed them to get out of any situation. But as the depth they had a small and shallow draft, they sailed the choppy seas.
Many European countries, including France, Spain and England xebek included in the composition of its fleet. French model xebek 1750 Le Requin offers the first Chinese firm. The model is made according to the drawings of French publishers Ancre, which today are the indisputable authority in the world. In addition, the selected scale (1:48) is respected by professionals, and all the drawings xebek performed in this scale. All this, along with the excellent quality of decor and a good selection of material, this model provides a sailboat resounding success.
Xebek frame is assembled from laser cut plywood parts (it should be noted that the frame is the only place where plywood is used in all other areas used only solid wood). Because the body of the model sailboat is quite large, then it is a double gain keel, frames and all seventeen additional bonded longitudinal inserts. Deck plating is performed according to the drawings of the Ancre, and on the enclosure provides not only rowing ports, but the scuppers. Plating is performed above the waterline in two layers.Very complex structure overhang aft runs as a slatted floor with the design of beams and columns.

A thin side decor given great photoetching. Photoetching and are all kinds of hooks, loops and thin curly mount.

Armament xebek consists of 24 neatly-turned brass cannons, each of length 50 mm. The guns are mounted on wooden carriages and offered the opportunity to complete their harness.
