The Norwich Union yacht model is one of the many scale models available in our Custom Range. The model yacht was originally built for the crew of the Norwich Union, which competed in the BT Global Challenge Race.
The sailing involves a demanding 10 month, 30,000 mile race around the world. With a crew of18 people from all walks of life the Norwich Union team was formed to compete in what was billed as the toughest yacht race in the world, prevailing winds and currents.
Challenge Business custom-built 12 identical yachts based on all the experience they had gain from already running the 1992 and 1996 Global Challenge races. Moving on from the original 67ft design, the new 72ft class were built to be safer, stronger, faster and generally more comfortable to sail and live aboard.
Built with careful attention detail, using high quality materials, our skilled artisans have captured inclusive features of the original into our replica model yacht. With over 12 years of experience, we are dedicated to providing our clients with the highest quality and most competitive pricing in the industry.
Alongside our ranges, we offer all our clients a custom build process, which includes a Model Maker’s Brief, to detail exact specifications of our model yacht. We also provide professional photographs during the building process, so you can see precisely how your yacht model is coming along.
