The Original Love Boat Comes to Life — in 250,000 LEGO® Bricks

Master LEGO Builder Immortalizes Princess Cruises Ship Pacific Princess, Complete with Interior Details

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. Jan. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — A love of cruising has led to a remarkably creative version of Princess Cruises’ famous Love Boat Pacific Princess as reincarnated in LEGO by a fan in Melbourne, Australia .

Measuring 10.5 feet long and nearly 5 feet high and made from more than 250,000 LEGO bricks, the extraordinary model took six months to build and is the largest single project ever undertaken by professional LEGO builder, Ryan McNaught. Images of the LEGO Love Boat can be seen on .

The son of Melbourne travel agent Lyn McNaught. the 36-year-old McNaught was inspired by the many cruises he has enjoyed over the years.

He also recently built a giant Airbus 380 LEGO model, so he decided the time had come to tackle a ship.

I wanted to do something with character so I chose the original Love Boat. Pacific Princess, and studied photos and deck plans to capture her features and her beauty, McNaught said.

While one side of the model features the exterior of the famous ship, the other side is an open cutaway revealing all the action inside — from chefs in the kitchen to passengers working out in the health club.

McNaught has also brought the cast of the famous Love Boat TV show to life with LEGO models of the legendary Captain Stubing, Gopher and cruise director Julie, along with some of the show’s most famous guests such as David Hasselhoff .

Flashing LED lights for the disco and tiny motors powering the propellers and elevators complete the picture.
