Replica Models for Trade Show Exhibits, Office Displays, Customer Gifts, or Prototyping

Ideally we like to work from a series of detailed photographs, hull lines and general arrangement deck layout plans. For a yet-to-be built vessel, we can easily work with CAD, 3-D renderings, line drawings and other files. All plans and reference materials are confidentially kept on file for future reference, should you wish to have another model made. Any physical photographs or items you send us will be returned with your model. Of course, we are happy to sign any necessary non-disclosure agreements in advance.

Thanks to our master model makers, some with over 20 years in the business, we skillfully create display models that capture every detail of each vessel. We offer our customers true museum quality replica models you will be proud to display. Each model ship comes fully assembled, the hull is made using a combination of ABS and kiln-dried mahogany,with other parts made from a variety of woods, resins and metals. Each model is mounted on pedestals and a display base (waterline models are also available).

We engage our customers at each stage of the model build. Prior to shipping, we take a series of photos of the model and send them to you for final review and approval – so you know exactly what your model will look like and allow for any necessary modifications.

       From Dockside to Desktop

The build time is generally 12-14 weeks from receipt of the necessary photographs and support documents, and will depend on the model complexity and quality of the support materials provided, as well as well as the model size and order quantity.

The normal procedure is a 50% deposit with the commissioning, with the balance due prior to shipping. Once you have approved your model, she will be shipped in a robust shipping crate and insured for your protection.
