Old Modern Handicrafts
Bristol Yachts was founded by Clint Pearson, one of the first production fiberglass boat builders.One of his designs is the Bristol 35.5. Have it display as a home or office decor. Master craftsmen handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch using historical photographs, drawings and original plan. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. They are 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. The Bristol Yacht's hull comes in a beautiful tone of color with black and light blue with white stripes. The mast and boom are painted in silver. It also has an large cabin with a wooden door and black windows. There are wooden hatches on top of the cabin as well. You can also see a pulpit and guard rails around the yacht hold up by metal stanchions. There is a metal ladder hanging on the transom. The meticulously stitched sails and intricate rigging complete the definition of a true sailing boat. The model is secured tightly on a light blue solid wooden base with a brass nameplate. The tall mast and sails are folded down for easy packaging and shipping. Assembly in minutes. It'll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.
