A full-size replica of Sir Francis Drake's famed Elizabethan galleon the Golden Hind has emerged for sale for £195,000.
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.
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.
The current owner, Neil Worrell, 58, bought the boat four years ago with his wife, who has since passed away.
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.
