The Ark near Amsterdam

ABC News: Ark-itecture

BBC: specifications
  • 1/5 original size
  • 30 miles north of Amsterdam
  • sailing in September
  • constructed with American cendar and Norwegian pine
  • will carry horses, sheep, chickens and rabbits—mostly baby animals to save space
  • Total cost: just under 1m euros ($1.2 million)
  • visitors needed to break even: 100,000
  • Builder: Johan Huibers, 47
Interesting to note is the Bryan College Administration building is built to the actual size of the original ark.
