About the Oyster 54
The Oyster 54 is one of the last boats to be designed by Rob Humphries, as part of the 54 line. The Oyster 54 is the successor to the 53, and is designed with significantly improved sailing performance and a modern feel. The Oyster 54 is also much lighter, as it has been built with a cored hull above the waterline. There is also 25% more space in the cockpit, ensuring for a greater sense of comfort. On the interior the Oyster 54 has a three-cabin layout, and a spacious living area. Today, the Oyster 54 has been replaced by the Oyster 545, which is an upgraded version of the yacht.
Making of the Oyster 54 Model Yacht
The construction process begins with extensive research and planning, to ensure that the ship model is replicated as accurately as possible. The ship model is then scratch-built by master craftsmen, using her original plan and photographs.
The making of this model requires hundreds of hours of work before completion and undergoes a stringent quality control process before leaving the workshop. The team of master craftsmen make use of their skills and expertise to build the hulls and bridges exclusively out of hand picked hardwoods, in order to create the structure of the ship model. The plank-on-frame technique is then employed to follow the unique curve of each ships hull. In order to create a smooth finish, the model ship is sanded and varnished, before the painting begins. An undercoat layer is added, to create a smooth and even surface. The paint is then selected and matched to the colour of the original ship. The details on this ship have been replicated using polished brass, metal finishes and leather upholstery. Each of these processes are executed in sync with the customer’s customisation requirement or matched perfectly with the ship’s original layout. The ship model is then packaged carefully, to ensure that ensure for a smooth and safe transit to our clients.
The Oyster 54 Model Yacht has been constructed in detail and is mounted on a solid wooden base with brass name plate. This model would make a stunning addition for any space.
This model is not a kit and is ready for display.
