The above list might seem like an attempt at cataloguing the leading lights of the nautical world or the even the slew of new craft featured in the prestige yacht design competitions promoted by the sector’s glossy magazines. It is neither. Rather it provides a short but telling sample of the 200-plus models made in 2016 for the leading nautical pens and yards by the Model Maker Group (MMG). Inflatables, open and flying bridge motoryachts, sail boats, mega and gigayachts: all shapes, sizes and types are in there.

The MMG success story now extends well beyond Italian borders, having gone from strength to strength over the years in terms of numbers, output and financials. There is just one explanation for this exponential growth: quality.

MMG models don’t merely imitate, they perfectly replicate right down to the tiniest details, the boats as they emerge from the design studios and yards. They are identical copies on a smaller scale of those craft and are used by designers wishing to have a “real” reference of what they’ve created on paper or computer, to assist them in their work. Equally the models act as a powerful marketing tool employed by all the big names to allow them to effortlessly and seamlessly exhibit their products at the various boat shows across the world: Cannes, Genoa, Monaco, Paris, Dubai, Miami, Singapore, Dusseldorf…

Wherever there’s a boat show, wherever new craft are unveiled, there will most definitely be models made by MMG. Needless to say, this also holds true for the 2016 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show between November 3 and 7 where visitors will enjoy a first-hand experience of unparalleled Made in Italy quality, thanks to the new motoryacht models on display at the Baglietto, Fincantieri, Rossi Navi and Mondomarine stands - all made by MMG, of course.

To ensure the models do their job with absolutely efficiency and effectiveness throughout the shows, MMG assists the yards before each one, often working on client stands to check and install the models themselves.
