This model is built primarily in mahogany exactly as the real boat with fitting parts ( chrome brass) built by skilled jewllers. The upholstery is authentic period and hand stitched. In order to obtain a perfectly smooth hull and deck, 10 layers of varnish are applied, intersected with increasingly fine stages of sanding. The final phase consists in applying several layers of gloss varnish to produce a " mirror effect " characteristic of these boats.
