Nuevo Anchustegui, “Gure Señoriti”
Until April 7, 2024, at Carol Iglesias Espazioa
This is a journey through the history of a unique and unrepeatable boat, the oldest representative of an era and a fundamental typology in the development of traditional inshore fishing in the Basque Country that reflects the know-how of the coastal carpenters who populated the coast of Bizkaia in the twentieth century.
The exhibition covers topics such as the family, the town of Ondarroa, its home port, the history of the boat and its adaptations to serve the different types of fishing in which it operated, its donation to Itsasmuseum or its new life as a piece of the collection. It also presents a selection of images and documents from the family archive, as well as pieces donated by other institutions such as the Euskal Museoa.
