The state …hired the well-known British expert Brian Lavery to draw the plans.
This time they did it right … the ship he designed … is widely regarded as one of
the best replica vessels around.

Professor John A Tilley

The replica of Captain Cook’s Endeavour launched at Fremantle, Australia in 1993 and regarded as one of the most accurate replica ships in existence.

The design and construction of the new Endeavour is a remarkable achievement. It represents a massive research effort and a triumph of shipbuilding.
