Starting Your Model Yacht Collection

Model yachting has been popular almost since the very beginning of sailing. Model yacht enthusiasts take the hobby extremely seriously, whether hobbyists are displaying their models, free sailing them, or sailing radio control model yachts. The hobby is easily accessible to everyone, from first time model owners to those with a lifelong affinity for yacht models. Premier Ship Models can create a custom model yacht to meet your needs, whether you want to display your ship model or sail it.

There are many ways to enjoy model yachting. If you enjoy the process of building a model, you could build your own yacht or have one custom made for you. Custom model makers can replicate any type of yacht, from older models to modern yachts. Experienced model makers are able to replicate any vessel, so it is an authentic representation of the original ship.

When getting started in model yachting, the most important thing to consider is how you are going to use it. Some people prefer to simply use their models as collectibles or for display purposes only. Model yachts are found in marine museums, boat clubs, corporate offices, and private homes. A beautiful, handcrafted yacht model makes an impressive display and adds to the décor of your home or office.

Many model yachting hobbyists prefer a more active hobby. This can be accomplished by free sailing a model yacht or using a radio control model yacht for sailing, either for pleasure or in competitions. Watching your yacht free sailing across the water is very relaxing and many people just enjoy the simple pleasure of sailing a yacht for fun.

Radio control yacht and super model yacht models can be sailed using radio control technology. RC technology has been used in models since the 1960s and the technology has improved exponentially between that time and now. Rather than just passively watching your model sail, you can take control of the vessel as it moves across the water. This can be done alone or in model yacht races.

Model yachting competitions are held by model yachting clubs and organizations in the United States, the UK, and other countries around the world. If you are seriously considering racing your yacht and participating in competitions, you should visit the local clubs in your area to determine the kind of models that they are using. Many clubs have a specific class and competitions are often limited to specific types of boats.

If you are serious about model yachting or hope to race your model in the future, you may want to join a model yachting club in your area. In the United States, the American Model Yachting Association (AMYA) is an organization that is devoted to promoting the hobby of building, sailing, and racing wooden yacht models. There are similar organizations in other countries that serve a similar function.

While most national and international organizations are focused primarily on the racing aspects of the hobby, membership in a club will enable you to meet other people with the same interests as you, including design, scale, and sailing model yachts. A high quality yacht model and connecting with likeminded hobbyists will set you on a path to an enjoyable and exciting new adventure.
