The “Ayesha” Wooden Topsail Schooner Replica boasts a distinctive position in history. In November 1914, a landing party from the destroyed German light cruiser SMS Emden took control of the Ayesha and managed to evade capture as prisoners of war. This event exemplifies their resourcefulness and ingenuity, as well as the versatility and usefulness of wooden topsail schooners.
Despite the advancements in naval warfare technology, wooden topsail schooners continued to prove valuable for escape and transportation. As a result, the Ayesha has become a precious piece of maritime history and a highly sought-after addition to any collection of naval and maritime artifacts. By showcasing a replica of the Ayesha in a glass display case, we accentuate its historical significance and make it a prominent piece in any collection. Furthermore, we pay homage to the ingenuity and resourcefulness it embodies.
