Inexpensive Semi - Custom Model ...
The production Full Stern Models are made with gel coat and two layers of fiberglass. Each of these models is very large scale and has minimal details. Most of the Standard models are priced under $100 so they could be used as a regatta trophy by regatta organizers or as a gift to crew, etc..
In order to reduce time & cost, I use a one-piece hard mold with few details, although the models are all still semi-custom built. Each model can be built with custom hull & bottom colors, with logos or any name lettered on the transom, with any water line strips and with a few more details added to the the stern, etc. Please let me know any details you wish to add to the model. I am more than happy to discuss customization of your model.
The standard backboard for the model is about 18-20"(W) x 12-15"(H), with the name plate (4"x2") placed above the model (or any location on the board). Also your choice of exotic wood veneer on 1/2" MDF board with trim is standard. The weight of the model is less than 10 LBS , so the shipping fee should be less than $15 to the lower 48 states via USPS w/ insurance.
The delivery time should be 2-4 weeks. (if I have a hard female mold for your boat)
Quantity discounts are available for fleet orders and for the regatta organizer. ( I will do my best to work with your budgets)
