Billing Boats

← All Topics
In de vroege jaren 50 werkte de heer Ejnar (Ed) Billing, een voormalig RAF-piloot tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog, als architect in de stad Esbjerg in Denemarken. Zijn vrouw had een hobbywinkel genaamd Vestjydsk Hobby en Mr. Billing toonde trots zijn model van een Deense vissersboot. In die tijd waren er geen echte modelbootkits van waaruit je een boot zou kunnen maken.

Op een dag zag een Deens tijdschrift dit model in de etalage van de Hobbyshop en waren zeer geïnteresseerd. Ze wilden 50 exemplaren van deze vissersboot voor een wedstrijd. Mr. Billing was erg enthousiast over het idee, maar het was een enorme onderneming om 50 modellen te maken, dus kwam hij op het idee om het model als bouwpakket te maken, precies zoals je een echt schip zou bouwen. En zo ontstond het concept “plank-on-frame”. Uitgevonden dus door Mr. Billing, en nog steeds door alle modelbootfabrikanten over de hele wereld wordt gebruikt.

Tot 1958 werden de kits geproduceerd onder de naam “VHT” Vestjydsk Hobby Teknik, maar dit veranderde toen de producten van Mr. Billings bekend werden buiten Denemarken. In augustus 1958 waren het logo en de naam van Billing Boats een feit, en het bedrijf begon over de hele wereld bekend te worden als de eerste en beste fabrikant van modelboten.

In de jaren ’60, ’70 en ’80 werden de kits verbeterd en geleidelijk aan gemakkelijker gemaakt voor consumenten om te bouwen. De kaders waren voorgesneden of gestanst, In de jaren 60 werden ook de ABS-rompen geïntroduceerd voor de mensen die met RC wilden gaan zeilen.
In 1989/90 kwam de eerste lasercut-machine en werd alles makkelijker te produceren, maar ook te maken voor de modelbouwer.

In 1990 stierf de heer Billing, en zijn vrouw en zoon namen het bedrijf over en leidden het in zijn geest. In de jaren 90 werd het duidelijk dat de markt aan het veranderen was en dat de concurrentie niet meer alleen uit Europa kwam. In 2003 namen de heer Billings zoon, Kent Billing en zijn vrouw Rikke Dolleris Billing het bedrijf over

MontereyEven though this boat is known as a “Monterey,” the design of this craft originated in San Francisco Bay, California, (90 miles from Monterey). This boat was built at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco and was given the nickname “Monterey”. The immigrant Italian or Sicilian craftsman in San Francisco Bay, patterned the “Monterey” after the Mediterranean Lateen Sail Felucca, with modifications to accept a gas engine, so this is a true California, USA creation!

Slo-Mo-Shun IVWhen three men met in early 1949 at a Seattle sailboat shop, none of them could have foreseen the peculiar and far-reaching consequences of their joint venture to build a better race boat. Slo-mo-shun IV was indeed better than any previous race boat. But she was more than that: Slo-mo IV touched the hearts of thousands who cheered her on and changed forever the way generations of Seattleites felt about raceboats. Slo-mo-Shun IV transformed the lives of those most closely associated with her, nearly destroying some of them.

They were instigated and led by Fletcher Christian, the executive officer, who dissented from the captain. Bligh was set adriftin an open boat 30 miles from Tofua with 17 loyal members of the crew.

GladanSince 1776 Swedish naval officers got their education on board special training ships. In 1946 it was decided to build such new ships to replace the HMS Jarramas, which had served it's time. HMS Gladan was then delivered from the Stockholm Naval Dockyard in June 1947 and was followed by it's sistership the HMS Falken in October of the same year. Both Schooners have been renovated during years. HMS Gladan and HMS Falken are mostly sailing together on their cruises to the harbours in the Baltic, Kattegat, Skagerak and the North Sea. Furthermore they have crossed the Atlantic several times. Twice to sail in the Caribbean and once in a sail race for training ships. Since 1956 both schooners have participated in most international sailing races for training ships.

HMS Victory was launched in 1765 at Chatham Dockyard and was commissioned in 1778. She continued in active service for the next 34 years which included her most famous moment “the Battle of Trafalgar” in 1805. In 1812 the Victory was retired from frontline duty and anchored in Portsmouth Harbour, on the south coast of England. For the next 110 years the Victory remained at her moorings in Portsmouth Harbour fulfilling a combination of practical and ceremonial roles. In 1922, amid fears for her continued survival, the Victory was moved into Portsmouth’s Royal Naval Dockyard and placed in No2 Dry Dock. Her Majesty’s Ship Victory is the only surviving naval warship that represents the skill of naval dockyard shipwrights, ship designers and the industrial ability of Britain during the mid 18th century.

The Oseberg was built in the last half of the 800's and was buried roughly 50 years later. The ship is some 50 to 100 years older than similar vessels which have been found. It lay deep in the water and must have been relatively dangerous under sail.

USS Constitution is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy. Named by President George Washington after the Constitution of the United States of America, she is the world’s oldest floating commissioned naval vessel.[Note 1] Launched in 1797, Constitution was one of six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794. Joshua Humphreys designed the frigates to be the young Navy’s capital ships, and so Constitution and her sisters were larger and more heavily armed and built than standard frigates of the period. Built in Boston, Massachusetts at Edmund Hartt’s shipyard, her first duties with the newly formed United States Navy were to provide protection for American merchant shipping during the Quasi-War with France and to defeat the Barbary pirates in the First Barbary War.
VarnadisIn the mid-1860's a Swedish distilling company placed a contract with the Stockholm dockyard of Soedra Varvet for the construction of a fast, elegant sailing schooner. In 1868 the 29 m long Vanadis was launched, rigged as a Newfoundland schooner. During her colourful career the vessel's high speed was in demand, and at times she operated as a smuggling boat and as a customs vessel. She now serves as a charter vessel for extended sailing cruises, and has taken part with great success in international regattas.
