Noah's Ark Replica By Johan Huibers.

Noah's Ark Replica By Johan Huibers.

A dream which took 14 years to manifest, for which the work began in May 2005, and finally it was on April 28, 2007 that the exhibit opened in Schagen, Holland and people had the first look of Noah's Ark Replica by Johan Huibers. Johan Huibers, a Ducth contractor by trade, built a replica of Noah's ark, using modern tools working from 8 to 5, six days a week, and most of the work was done by him, with occasional help from his son after school. The ark was built using American cedar and Norwegian pine, using the dimensions: 150 cubits long (225 feet), 30 cubits high (45 feet) and 20 cubits wide (30 feet) which is two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house. People are amazed seeing the life size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals in the main hold.

on, but I'm disappointed that it doesn't float on it's own...Maybe it does float, but we'll never know.

Where is the "Ark" now? It's no longer in Schagen where I sent some people to look. Where is the latest viewing place?
Great work btw. Wonderful testimony

I received an email from my sister about the ark you built. What a wonderful testimonial. Hope sometime I will be able to see it.
