The 120ft replica of The Golden Hind is up for sale for £195,000...<br />
<br />
A full-size replica of Sir Francis Drake's famed Elizabethan galleon the Golden Hind has emerged for sale for £195,000.<br />
<br />
The 120ft wooden ship is an exact remake of the flagship which Drake sailed round the world from 1577 to 1580, the first Englishman ever to circumnavigate the globe.<br />
<br />
The boat, which was built in 1988, is the second of two replica Golden Hinds which have taken pride of place in Brixham, Devon, since the 1954.<br />
<br />
The current owner, Neil Worrell, 58, bought the boat four years ago with his wife, who has since passed away.<br />
<br />
During their ownership the pair did a lot of renovation to the museum boat, including replacing the crows nests and gangplanks, painting it and generally updating the whole facility.
