The full-rigged model ship on the Collectible Boat Visa Gift Card represents a craft nearly as old as shipbuilding itself. Ancient Greeks and Egyptians made some for children’s toys, but more often they were made as scale models of actual ships used as burial offerings. Centuries later models were used for training and to educate non-sailors. The model ship on the Collectible Boat Visa Gift Card shows the final evolution of sailing vessels; the square- or full-rigged ship with three masts, all of which hold sails rigged on horizontal spars. These gift cards are always popular with sailors and anyone who loves ships.
