ARTEFICIA NAVALIS. AROUSING YESTERYEAR’S BEAUTY.

 

Herzogin Cecilie from 1902

At the miniaturized “wharf” of ARTEFICIA NAVALIS the founders and crew members share a vision of: “Constructing riveted America’s Cup yachts, vessel legends, bridges, lighthouses, and other maritime contemporary examples as it was done more than a century ago. Honoring these unique and man-made achievements in time. Arousing their beauty and elegancy again. Leaving a golden heritage behind.”

To reach this ambitious goal, the company has acquired a deep understanding of the history of naval architecture and has successfully developed an electronic controlled production line for micro-rivets (0,5 mm – 0,8 mm) – the distinctive and recognizable feature of an AN artifact. With the result that two highly skilled, talented and passionate founders and their artisan recreate wonderful maritime legends with elaborate handwork and absolute perfection.
