This beautiful model is a Venetian Polacca (also called “Polacra”). It is a Kit from the Italian company Amati, very complete and well presented. It has many details that require a lot of skill in working with wood.

|Measures (mm)||Length: 450, Beam: 330, Height: 85|
|Comments||Boat for experts, because of the amount of details. Very entertaining. Although some modelers have finished it with the sails unfolded, I chose to finish it with the rigging collected, which also has its charm. I had this boat in the dry dock for many months (that’s why the amount of years under construction).|
