The story of DOLPHIN PAINTED

The Yacht Dolphin was built by Consolidated Commuters on Long Island. She is perhaps the finest looking boat on the NY Canals, a 66 mahogany beauty. There are only 4 left that exist today. The Yacht Dolphin belongs to the same family when she was built in 1929 and was registered in Sorel, Canada. Originally there were some 300 Consolidated Commuters. Most of them were built for wealthy businessmen to commute from their homes on Long Island to Manhattan. When two of them would meet, often a race would ensue and the New York Yacht Club would record the results. They often carried a crew of 5-6 including a cook, a barber and a maid as well as the Captain and deck crew. Yacht Dolphin was originally equipped with Speedway gasoline engines, but those are long gone. She is now powered by twin Cummins B200 turbo-diesels.

 

Product description

  • Material: high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany + metal only (no plastic parts)
  • Skill: best traditional real ship-making methods applied, hundreds of hours required to finish each model by our master craftsmen
  • Uniqueness: each ship is an “Exclusive Edition” where the model has a unique serial number etched into the hull

Packaging 

In this final important step, this ship is packed in a sturdy wood and then in a nice carton box with cushion for maximum protection. We also perform a drop test to make sure the package is safe in shipping.

Company profile

Every ship has a story. From bow to stern, star board to port side, every vessel carries its own exquisite history. Through our fine hand craftsmanship, we tell that story the way it deserves to be told – with heart and soul. We uses traditional methods of building ship models, while integrating modern innovations. Our master craftsmen in Vietnam construct each ship entirely by hand using the traditional plank-on-bulk head method. They then harness high-tech tools like laser machines to create fine, accurate details. Each ship is scaled down in precise proportions from the original model for authenticity. It is a masterful synthesis of modern and traditional methods that makes the Old Modern quality one of a kind. What we mean by quality you can trust:

● Extensive research through original plans and pictures makes our models true to life.

● 100% hand-built from scratch, plank by plank.

● Hundreds of hours of work go into our museum-quality models.

● Made of quality wood such as western red cedar, mahogany, rosewood, teak, and more

● Chrome, brass, and cast metal fittings and ornaments add richness and verisimilitude

● Each model must pass a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop and making its voyage to you. Old Modern Handicrafts carries all manner of ships from every age of sail, and we are also proud to build custom models for our customers.
