The boat is actually constructed outside the glass bottle, but is fully completed once it is inside.

Becuase the ship is so much larger than the bottle's opening, people often wonder how the ships in bottles actually work. The ship is built outside the bottle, with the masts laying down on the deck. A long cotton thread is attached to the rigging, and the ship is pushed through the neck of the bottle. Pulling on the thread hoists the rigging and up comes the masts; the ship is now full sail in the bottle.
