Noah’s Ark replica race is on

Noah's Ark: not the Hollywood version

The latest full-sized Noah’s Ark replica is already taking shape—but not in Kentucky. It’s in Holland, it will float, and will have a real zoo on board.

An experienced Arkwright

Johan Huibers, 60, of Rotterdam, brings experience to his project. Six years ago he built a smaller floating Noah’s Ark replica. This model was 225 feet in length, 30 feet in beam and 45 feet in height. So it had half the length, two-thirds the beam, and one-third the carrying capacity of the original. But it actually floated and had a small petting zoo on the weather deck.
