the yacht models

the timelessness of ostentation

Even as early as the 17th century, people who could afford to loved to show off their richly decorated yachts. This exhibit of ship models presents a beautiful picture of luxury pleasure craft through the ages.

Each replica is exquisite. Yachts of all kinds: boyers, round bottoms and more. In many cases, just as artfully crafted as the real thing, with all the decoration right down to the tiniest rich detail.

You can also admire models of modern yachts, such as the catamaran Zeeman, the Volvo Ocean Racer ABN Amro 1 and the three-master Maltese Falcon. And curiosities such as the speedboat are not left out either.
