CUSTOM YACHT MODELS ( - )
These examples by our top artists exemplify the mix of traditional hull construction methods with that of modern craftsmanship techniques. Both these full and half hulls are all hand-carved wooden hulls, precisely templated to the body & lines plans, and each given protective epoxy coatings to provide stability and longevity of the form before paint work. Via precision AutoCAD drawings, milling machines, brass photo-etching, laser cutting, and new sophisticated casting methods, deck fittings can now be well detailed and exacting, a most important feature of high-quality modern or classic yacht models.
