This is a Vintage Model of a 1960's Chris-Craft Constellation yacht. I thought this objet d'art was an especially interesting object with a cool retro feel. It's from an estate in Chicago. I love boats and am fascinated with the whole boating and yachting scene, loving the water as I do. My brother-in-law recently had his boat stolen from right off his backyard dock, so he and my sister have been boat shopping lately. This might be a bit of a tight fit for them, at 48"W X 13"D X 7.5", but it sure is cute! Just a sample of what Bond and Bowery's dealers have to offer.

Here is a news flash from Bond and Bowery - Ben Spaisman just informed me that Bond and Bowery is introducing DealerDirect. It's a new and one of a kind feature (to the best of their knowledge) in their industry.

The DealerDirect feature enables Bond & Bowery registered users to submit a request for a specific item (or items), that they have been unable to find on their site or elsewhere, to their entire network of dealers. The submissions are posted dynamically in a Craig’s List type format so that Bond & Bowery dealers can browse and respond to any requests that they can fulfill.

Bond and Bowery could keep me busy browsing for hours. There are so many interesting pieces to peruse. Why not take a look?

You would make a perfect Agent 007, Bond babe for them. I could see you now, headband, huge sunglasses and some sort of bikini.
Boys and their toys just keep getting better!

Even though I'm not a boater I love to look at ships..., real ones and models. The wood work and craftsmanship is amazing.

Hi Maya,
Thanks for commenting! Yes, I don't have a boat myself, but if I was going to get one, this would be the type of vintage look I would dig. Love the wood detailing. Plus, with this one, you don't have to pay slip fees!
