Zhou An Qi
Yacht Model Maker
With over 30 years experience in building models, Zhou An Qi's talents are well known throughout the international yachting community. Private and commercial commissions allow his work to be displayed at most national and international boats shows including Shanghai, Singapore, Miami and Monaco. Mr. Zhou and his team of 10 model makers, proudly appreciate the significance of their work, creating detailed representations of yacht designers and private yacht owners alike.
His yacht models are built in exactly the same procedure as the real Mc Coy starting with tiny lofting, sacrificial wooden frames plugs and FRP moulds when building FRP models. Wooden boats are built in the traditional manner as well. Equally comfortable with sail and motor model making, Zhou An Qi and his crew have produced quite a variety of models over the past several years. ( see our Custom Yachts Model page ).
Yacht designers provide him with Auto Cad and Rhino drawings and renderings while often as not, private yacht owners provide him with only photos and overall measurements, as a guideline to produce amazingly accurate mini yachts. Mr. Zhou has produced yachts for Ocean Alexander, Sunseeker, Double Happiness, CCYD, Fairline, Calibre and many other yacht companies, as well as many famous Naval Architects and individual yacht owners. Mr. Zhou and his team are presently hand building over 60 yacht models per year, each model by its own dedicated craftsman.
