Holiday Gifts For Boaters

With the end of boating season almost here, and the holiday season approaching rapidly, how about this for a gift for the boater who has everything!

How about commissioning a custom model of your boat, SD Model Makers based in San Diego Ca. has been building all types of boat models for almost 20 years.  Whether you’re looking for a model of a tall ship, navy vessel or a custom model of your personal power or sailing vessel

Working with Photographs and any available boat plans, line drawings, and other resources their model makers work to create an exact replica of your vessel and build a masterpiece which you will be proud to display and cherish forever.

If you take a look at their photo gallery you will see the level of detail that they build into every model, even reproducing a client’s exact helm station layout down to the electronics package, gauges and wheel cover.  They can even match the canvas and upholstery including deck furniture and toys.  Your boat’s name hailing port and color scheme are perfectly replicated to tell everyone it’s your pride and joy.

Their customers find that commissioning a replica ship model is a fun and engaging process and one which is rewarded with something that will be kept forever.

SD Model Makers bills itself as the world’s finest handmade replica ship models.  Their models are displayed in places like the Pentagon, Chief of the US Navy, Smithsonian, and the White House.

SD Model Makers has assembled a team of craftsman from around the world all with unique talents that are used to create museum quality models that you will be proud to display for generations.  Each full hull model ship comes fully assembled with a solid hull hand carved from a solid piece of Mahogany.  Other parts are made from a variety of woods, putty, resins and metals.  Each full hull ship model is mounted on a brass pedestal and a polished mahogany display base and includes a brass nameplate.  They engage their customers at each stage of the model build.  Prior to shipping, we take a series of photos of the model and send them to you for final review and approval.

If you’re looking for a gift that truly is one of a kind consider a custom model of your pride and joy.
