A Llaberia Art & Models began its activities in 1985, when its founder Vicente Llaberia, at the time collaborator in Fast Yachts, sold to one of the partners of the group a ship mockup. His passion for boats comes from childhood, when already in the 1960s he set up his first kits of ships and airplanes.
He studied mechanical engineering in the 70's and worked professionally in offshore dives, as a mini-submarine operator and technician, for a Petrobras contractor.
Since its foundation, Llaberia has built more than 500 miniatures, including ships, planes and trains; much of this work is based on the collection of hundreds of original plants and over 1500 books on the subjects. In 1997, Llaberia expanded its activities in the field of antiquary, meeting the requests of many clients.
Today, with the name of Ponto Náutico Antiguidades e Maquetes, located in Vila Nova Conceição/Brazil, on the ground floor there is the antique shop with furniture, antique instruments, nautical pieces and decoration in general; and, upstairs, Llaberia continues to create precision or simply decorative designs.
