Why a scale model?

Scale models are highly complex, authentic miniature masterpieces produced by a company that is, to all intents and purposes, a shipyard in miniature.

Producing an exact scale replica of a yacht is a fundamental step in both the design process and the celebration of the project. By providing an overall view of the forms, proportions and dimensions of a vessel, it will highlight its harmony and design at a glance.

Scale models are thus a key factor in a yacht’s construction: from the design stage to the yard’s marketing and, equally importantly, in evoking the look and spirit of the craft for the owner.
