Bequia Maritime Museum
Categories: Shoreside Activities & Events
The museum is a small but interesting little haven which harbours some of the delights of Bequia’s maritime history, together with a fine collection of model boats crafted by Lawson Sargeant. These include a quite remarkable model of a traditional double ended Bequia Whaler, for which the island is famed, and a very intricate and faithful model of one of the J Class yachts.
Old black and white photos of the oldest schooners built in Bequia from the 1930’s to 1985 are on display, together with some photo documentation of the Queen of England’s first visit to Bequia in 1985, whereupon Lawson Sargeant presented her with a replica of her own Royal Yacht, Britannia.
