Bader Models has a world-renowned reputation for giving our clients exactly what they want. In fact, we specialize in custom reproductions. Models of contemporary and classic yachts, as well as other vessels ranging from naval ships to commercial liners, are constructed according to your specific requirements. Our master craftsmen, perfectionists that they are, ensure that every detail is right before the model arrives on your shores.


Like any fine item, it takes time and patience to create a Bader custom model. You shouldn't accept anything less than a perfect work of art to grace your boardroom, office or living room. Therefore, from the time that we receive your vessel's specifications and photographs, please allow four to six months for the completion of your exclusive hand-made model.
