Type: Miniature Model
A Pirogue boat model is any of various small boats, particularly dugouts and native canoes. The term ‘pirogue’ does not refer to a specific kind of boat.
However, it is a generic term for small native boats in regions once colonized by France. In French West Africa, the term refers to handcrafted banana-shaped boats used by traditional fishermen.
The Pirogue boat model is widely distributed and may be found as a fishing vessel in the Gulf of Mexico; as a shallow-draft boat that is used to maneuver through the Louisiana swamplands; and as a boat used by the Indians of Guyana. You will see pirogues in Mauritius when you are by the sea.
A Pirogue is a small traditional boat and it is used for fishing in Mauritius. World-famous Mauritian ship models, meticulously handcrafted by local artists, make a lovely present or souvenir to take home.
This one depicts a little traditional pirogue with a blue hull and a white sail. Pirogues are still used for fishing and other nautical activities. Racing pirogues are lighter and slimmer than typical fishing pirogues.
