This completed model kit by Premier Ship Models is an example when a client asked us to build a model from a kit. To prove our great customer service and commitment, we provide pictures of the models in several stages of the building process. This kit is a great detailed replica of the famous Amerigo Vespucci ship and contains design features of the original vessel.

Premier Ship Models are known for the quality and expertise of model making, paying attention to detail in every ship model. If you prefer to have a ready made model, Premier Ship Models offers a wide range of handcrafted, scratch built and ready made models in our Standard, Superior, Premier and Custom range. The models are handcrafted and painted by skilled artisans and built according to original plans, pictures and drawings.

The name of the ship is derived from the Italian explorer, Amerigo Vespucci. Amerigo Vespucci was one of the two ships ordered by Marina Militare, built in 1930 and launched in 1931 to serve as a training ship. The characteristics of this ship are full rigged three-masted steel hull, overall length of more than 100 metres including the bowsprit, width of more than 15 metres and ability to reach speed of 10 knots.

The highest of the three masts is towering to 54 metres and the entire ship contains 26 sails. The ship is easily recognizable by the black painted hull with two white stripes or the other way around. Since 1964, Amerigo Vespucci is powered by two 4-stroke, 8-cylinder FIAT B 308 ESS diesel engines which replaced the original 2-stroke, 6-cylinder FIAT Q 426 engines.
