Half models

Traditionally half-models are built of carved solid wood using the bread-and-butter construction method. While this can be beautiful, I prefer to plank my half-models using the same hull-building techniques I use for my full models, plank-on-form. I feel this produces an effect closer to authentic boat-building.

This half-model was built on commission. Half-models can be built to order.

Would you like one of these beautiful half-models, or a half-model of your choice - perhaps your own yacht - to display on the walls of your office or home, or as a gift for a friend? Contact me!
