Belafonte research vessel
Belafonte, formerly a British minesweeper, had been used in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou movie in 2004 directed by Wes Anderson. Now you can get the boat from Life Aquatic for your collection.
This Belafonte model ship has been handmade with highest details for collectors. Our master craftsmen handcrafted this nicely detailed model from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plan. In addition, we selected the finest woods and material to build this model. Also, we use plank-on-frame construction method which is similar to the building of the actual ship.
The model has many details such as: All windows, doors, and portholes are cut out precisely thanks to hand-built hollow superstructure and hull; Lighting feature inside the bulbous bow, detail helicopter and submarine; metal fittings, brass railing…
Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. She is sitting on a solid wood stand and ready to display. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.
