Clear View Designs and Abordage Models Team Up

Starting this summer Clear View Designs will be providing Abordage Models with our line of custom ship model display cases. "We are very pleased to be supplying our display cases to their United States customers. With a great devotion to both the sea and sailing, Abordage has been proudly producing beautifully hand crafted models since the company’ inception in 1989. The company workshop is located on the Island of Hispaniola where Columbus landed during his first voyage. Today the company employs highly skilled craftsmen who work only with the finest materials. Hundreds of hours go into making each model, from the original lofting of plans to the finishing touches. Hull construction is either hand laid-up resin or plank on bulkhead with a selection of precious wood. Deck details are reproduced with custom-made brass and chromed brass castings. Hand sanded hulls are finished with marine varnishes and polyurethane paint.

Clear View Designs sent a sample case for their inspection and appoval, which they loved! As they are updating their web site they will be adding photos of our case with one of their models inside. A sure match made for each other. We look forward to working with them and their customers in the near future.
