Product Description

 

100% hand built from scratch using “plank on frame” construction method.  More than 200 hours was spent by the master craftsmen to finish this model. Extensive research through original plans and pictures make this model authentic. Completed models contain hundreds of details.Made of mahogany and western red cedar cover by a transparent layer of fiberglass inside and outside for water proof.  All fittings are made of expensive brass.  Ferrari emblems and decals are included in the package for tour convenience. 

 The model was sanded and painted in many layers to create the mirror effect that you can see from the pictures. Each model goes through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. Just the perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast or passionate collector.

    For 1953, Castoldi decided to focus on setting top speed records. He commissioned an 800kg-class three-point hydroplane hull to be built by Cantieri Timossi, a hydroplane builder on Lake Como, near Milan… The hull was dubbed Arno XI. For the engine, he turned to the new up and comers of the auto racing scene – Scuderia Ferrari… On the morning of October 15, 1953, Achille Castoldi succeeded in smashing the 800kg class speed record with an average “flying kilometer” two-way speed of 150.49 mph. He followed up the performance later that day by setting another record in the “24 nautical miles” event with an average speed of 102.34 mph… Arno XI was restored in the early 1990s and was put up for auction at the Coy’s Festival at Silverstone in 1997 where it did not sell. It was photographed skimming across the water as recently as September 2004, along with many other vintage racing boats...
