Offered here is a nicely detailed handmade ready-to-display wooden model of the square-sterned sloop Gjøa used by famous Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen to transit the Northwest Passage in 1906. Intended for static display, this is not a kit but comes ready-assembled as photographed and has an integral wooden stand. It is used but in as new condition. It measures approx. 51cm(L)x13cm(W)x64cm(H) and will require a space for display of approx. 85cm(L)x30cm(W)x70cm(H). 

Gjøa was the first vessel to transit the Northwest Passage. With a crew of six, Roald Amundsen traversed the passage in a three year journey, finishing in 1906.

The Gjøa was displayed in the Norwegian Maritime Museum in Bygdøy, Oslo. In May 2009 the Norwegian Maritime Museum and the Fram Museum signed an agreement for the Fram Museum to take over the exhibition of the Gjøa.

A bauta (memorial pillar) now stands at Gjøa's former home in San Francisco. The Gjøa was also featured as a filming location in the 2005 documentary, The Search for the Northwest Passage, in which Kåre Conradi played Amundsen.

Roald Amundsen told the story of the exploration of the Norwest Passage in two volumes entitled Die Nordwestpassage. Meine Polarfahrt mit der Gjöa 1903 - 1907. the material was translated into English as The North-West Passage: Being the Record of a Voyage of Exploration of the ship "Gjøa" 1903-1907 (Ams Press Inc; June 1908, ISBN 978-404-11625-5 and reprinted Kessinger Pub Co, November 30, 2007, ISBN 978-0-548-77250-8).
