Building model ships has always been our passion. We are experts in decorative model boats and sailboats, and that passion shows in the quality of our models. To know more about us, click here.
All our boats reproductions are handmade with premium woods like teak. The hulls can be made in one piece by cutting and grinding process, a skeleton type using pieces similar to real construction. Hulls are a process of grinding and polishing with sand, layers of putty to remove imperfections and several coats of paint and sealed. Never use pre-build kits for the construction of models.
We use only the highest-quality woods available, such as cherry, birch, maple, white lotus, walnut, rosewood, teak, ebony and other.
We do not make sell kits and don't sell it. Essentially all parts of the model are made by us (figureheads, stern details, tables, candles, etc..) Other parts that are common are purchased from companies that manufacture thousands, such as bronze cannons, cleats , ropes and halyards, etc.
Sailing boats, which are at the greatest height dimension by mast, are constructed so that the mast is perfectly detachable for transportation issues. For such reason we have designed a system of rigging (stays, shrouds, back-stays, etc ...) that can be removed easily and fold mast for transportation. Assembly is very simple and does not have any level of complication.
Of course. One of our advantages is being able to make a model of any boat that our customers want. With just basic information such as manufacturer and model, and a few photographs can make any actual play.
Of course the cost of such decorative vessels, to be unique, is higher. The final price will depend on the difficulty of the boat and the size of the model, but to have an idea can be about an average of 400 €.
Our models are of hight quality that can last a lifetime. We can not say the maximum, because currently we have none of our models manufactured in the last 10 years who have suffered significant damage.
All of our models are fully assembled, simply out of the box and enjoy. To save on shipping costs, some of our sailboats with mast are sent with the stick removed. To assemble, simply insert the mast in its hole and holding aloft hooks in their slots. No need to be tied rig or tight, simply tighten the turnbuckles.
This is a very difficult question. This function depends on your budget and the type of boat you are looking for.
Fabricación scales are different depending on the boat, can vary between 1:20 - 1:30 - 1:40.These are the most common, but real boats whose length is bigger, of course the scale is larger. We try to make our models with a maximum length of 100cm.
Our offices are located in Sant Cugat del Valles (Barcelona), but our central store is on the French border to facilitate shipments to Europe. Normally offices in Sant Cugat del Valles have some models on exhibition, so if it is available can come and see. Anyway, on our website all the ship models have been photographed and made a video for the customer to know for sure how the models actually are.
