The Illustrated Story of How Mayflower II Was Built
By Stuart Upham
From 1955 to 1957, Mayflower II was built by hand in the Upham Shipyard in Brixham, Devon, England. The leader of the project was Stuart Upham who lovingly describes the building process in The Illustrated Story of How Mayflower II Was Built. Accompanied by archival photos and original drawings, Upham’s text vividly details how this iconic ship was constructed. For this special reprinting, Plimoth Patuxet has added seldom seen photos and images from the current restoration project to show the ways Plimoth Patuxet and its partners at Mystic Seaport stay true to the craftsmanship exemplified by Upham and his crew over 60 years ago.
