Product Description

The Columbia yacht was built in the Nevins Yacht by Olin Stephens who brought all his vast and sound experience in the design of the 1958 Americaís Cup Defender. This 12 meter yacht had a wooden hull and could sail at very high speed. This model will make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector. Master craftsmen handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch using historical photographs, drawings and original plan. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. They are 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires many hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop The Columbia yacht beauty is amazingly captured by the full sails that extends all the way up to the masthead. The hull is made of teak with inlay waterline. The deck is strip built from wood planks that are carefully placed symmetrically for a beautiful finish. Wooden hatches are located forward on the deck. The metal steering wheel is located aft just above the ruder. The brass stanchions hold up all the guard rails securely around the yacht. The model is secured tightly on a wood base with a brass name plate. The mast and sails are folded down for easy shipping.
