Real Noah’s Ark
We?ve already imported their pumps, maybe now it?s time we got our hands on another Dutch creation to help with the floods ? a life-size recreation of Noah?s Ark! Carpenter Johan Huibers spent three years and £1million to build the ship in Dordrecht, in the western Netherlands. Construction of the vessel, which weighs in at almost 3000tons and is 20,000m2, started in 2009 and opened to tourists in summer 2012.
