NY8 New York pier for merchant liners/cargo ships
£15.00 – £24.00
This is one of three New York pier models we have introduced which are of the type used by merchant liners and cargo ships to discharge their loads. These smaller piers not only served New York but were built in all large seaports worldwide. Models are cast in resin having the following dimensions: 14cm x 4cm x 2cm and available in unpainted version for £15.00 or painted for £24.00.
The most famour New York piers – see our NY1-6, were the huge piers used by the iconic superliners. However, most of the many piers that served New York had more modest dimensions, whilst still being quite impressive. These were used by many merchant liners and cargo ships to discharge their cargoes. This model, NY8 is just one of three models we have introduced, similar piers were built in all large seaports worldwide. See also NY7 and NY9.
