The Pilar was author Ernest Hemingway™’s prized possession. The 38-foot fishing boat was built by the Wheeler Shipyard in 1934 and was named after a bullfight shrine Hemingway™ had visited in Zaragoza, Spain. The shrine is prominently mentioned in Hemingway™’s book “For Whom the Bell Tolls.”
Pilar is also said to be the nickname of Hemingway™’s second wife. Hemingway™ purchased the boat in 1934 for $7,500. Hemingway™, an avid sport fisherman, did most of his fishing with Capt. Gregorio Fuentes on the boat. Fuentes was used as the fictional character in Hemingway™’s classic novel “The Old Man and the Sea.”
This is the official licensed model of the famous Hemingway™ Pilar Fishing Boat. The model was 100% handmade based on the original plan and painted green and black color. Contains many details such as a wooden chair, wooden bed, metal railings and metal steering wheel. Come with a wooden stand and ready for display
Dimensions: 27.5"l x 7.5"w x 15"h
