Rob was raised in Camden, Maine just up from the harbor. The town, its harbor and the creative people associated with Camden influenced Rob in many ways.
The association with a port such as Camden with its shipbuilding history and tangency to the ocean and to the great State of Maine was a natural fit when Rob and his wife Patty decided to move back to Maine in 1984, where they raised their family. Rob’s shop is located on his home premises.
Rob has been afforded an amazing life pursuing a vocation started as a hobby in his parent’s basement. It has taken over 40 years to accumulate the tools and skills to bring the custom yacht models business to its renowned level. The commissions have taken Rob to different countries around the world. Rob and his associate Reuben are grateful to all their clients for the faith and confidence they have had in them building complicated projects.
Their clients are deeply passionate and extremely knowledgeable about their yachts. They have been very involved in the planning and building of their yachts and many have raced and or sailed extensively with fond memories aboard the real vessel. Many are also patrons of the arts and recognize the superb quality workmanship done at Classic Yacht Models. The models they are building today will help preserve those fond memories and also become part of yachting history.
