SS Andrea Doria Ocean Liner Italian Line

Now you can get this beautiful SS Andrea Doria model for your home or office. Our master craftsmen handcrafted this nicely detailed model from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plan. In addition, we selected finest woods and material to build this model, using plank-on-frame construction method which is similar to the building of the actual ship.

Furthermore, the model contains many details: All windows, doors, and portholes are cut out precisely thanks to hand-built hollow superstructure and hull; Open promenade decks visible through superstructure windows; Lattice grating on ducts and vents; Detail Lifeboats hung from launching davits; Delicate railings on forecastle, aftcastle and top superstructure; Rigging and stay-lines on all masts and smokestacks… we apply multi-layered paint to match color of the real ship.

Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. Finally, she is mounted on a solid wood base and ready to display. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.

SS Andrea Doria was an ocean liner for the Italian Line (Società di navigazione Italia). Ansaldo Shipyards of Genoa built this ship and launched her on Jun 16, 1951. Her first maiden voyage on 14 January 1953. Her accident was in 25 July 1956, while Andrea Doria was approaching the coast of Nantucket, Massachusetts, bound for New York City, the eastbound MS Stockholm of the Swedish American Line collided with it and created one of history’s worse maritime disasters with 46 people killed.

Andrea Doria had a length of 697 ft, a beam of 90 ft, and a gross tonnage of 29,100. The propulsion system consisted of steam turbines attached to twin screws, enabling the ship to achieve a service speed of 23 knots, with a top speed of 26 knots. SS Andrea Doria was the largest, fastest and supposedly safest of all Italy’s ships at the time. She was an icon of Italian national pride with luxury design and carries about 1,200 passengers and 500 crews.
