Wight Steel Sailing Yacht
About the Vessel
Now doing duty for recreational sailing, this popular yacht was once used by the Dutch navy—a fact not many sailing yachts can boast about! The Wight Steel Yacht was often employed to hunt pirates in and around shallow waters. During 1660, these boats were called upon to serve royalty like Charles II of England. Modern standards divide yachts into two categories – sailing boats and power boats. Most steel sailing yachts are meant for light to medium-level sailing applications. However, the Wight Steel Yacht did more than proving a trustworthy sailing companion for leisure!
Our model-makers have the ability to create precise, scaled versions of vessels that come with little published, researchable details. Our research team uses offline and online tools to procure the most difficult-to-locate plans and real-life photographs that helps to create the blueprint for our team of maritime craftsmen. One glance at the model images displayed here and you will instantly realize that we focus on the details. Our model-builders have more than 40 years of experience among them and their skills reflect in the finesse. These model ships often have the smallest aspects handcrafted to perfection, including the helm station layout or wheel covers and gauges. The ability to take fine detailing to the next level separates us from our competitors. Expect the Wight Steel Yacht model to have some room for customization.
Details of the model ship:
- From hand-painted hulls for colour scheme accuracy to wooden frame repeatedly sanded for the perfect finish – our crew believes in intensive, manual approach to handcrafting a model yacht from scratch
- This yacht model comes with rolled-up sails – you can have them rolled down too
- One common customization option is getting your name engraved rather than use the standard name
- Use of premium woods, handpicked resins and the finest tools for hand-sculpting model ships
Premier Ship Models is uniquely positioned in the model ship-building space with its enviable team of master-craftsmen, maritime historians and nautical artists. Ship-lovers first and model-builders later, our passion for this craft stays unchanged. We cover a wide array of shipping vessels, including cruise ships, mega-yachts/super-yachts, fishing boats, power boats and legendary boats apart from shipping vessels that exist only in history or have turned into oceanic relics. We realize that each of these models is meant for a lifetime. Most transform into family gifts or become part of a collection – either way, the models are there to stay for a long time. This is why durability and finishing is of prime importance. Expect use of only the finest materials to do justice to your expectations.
