Seacraft Gallery - replica boats for Christmas
Wed, 30 Oct 2013
Ideal for the boating man in your life, or as a superb conversation piece for the library, lounge or Clubhouse, the intricately hand-crafted models from Seacraft Gallery come in every form to suit every taste and boating inclination.
'All models are handmade from the beginning by skilled, experienced craftsmen,' explains Jennifer from Seacraft, based in Bankstown, Sydney. 'They are built according to scale from the original ships using original plans or pictures and the plank on frame construction method. The hull is built with strips of wood just like they built the original boats.'
Fully assembled and ready to display, these are not model kits, and the manufacturers have ensured the models are museum quality, based on their intensive research of the original vessels.
'Plus, as a manufacturer, we can provide our customers outstanding models at reasonable prices,' says Jennifer.
Visit the website www.seacraftgallery.com.au and peruse the range and you will see the various models, from the exquisite tall ships such as HM Bark Endeavour, HMS Bounty, Sovereign of the seas, to the supine speed boats like the desirable Ferrari, Riva Gucci and Aquarama.
Then there are the model sailboats and racing yachts such as the legendary Australia II, Shamrock, Endeavour. If you're tastes run to cruise liners, you'll like the Titanic, Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth 2 and many more.
Beyond marine, the range extends to model aircrafts, motorbikes, cars and even musical instruments - something for everybody on your Christmas list, or a special memento of a milestone, anniversary or occasion.
Seacraft Gallery will send to every state of Australia as well as overseas.
