The Duyfken 1606 Replica Foundation Project is a maritime archaeological exercise, recreating a working, full scale replica of the Dutch jacht, Duyfken. The reconstruction took place at the Maritime Museum in Fremantle, Western Australia.

For more than 2 years, Mastery Multimedia captured the evolution of The Duyfken with QuickTime VR Photography, from when the bare ribs (known as futtocks) were first in place, to her sea trials off the coast of WA, before her departure. Our final QTVRs, taken on board the 'Little Dove' as she crested and dipped through the open seas off Fremantle were the most technically challenging and personally fulfilling of the entire process.

The Duyfken has since completed successful journeys from Fremantle, Western Australia, to Banda, Indonesia, Queensland via the Cape York Peninsula, and in late 2002, completed an extraordinary voyage from Australia to The Netherlands.
