Shipowner models are traditionally considered to be the top of the range of the ship model. Tradition has it that at the launch of each boat of any importance, the owner had a model of the boat built in 3 copies by a specialized model maker ... which cost a fortune.
The first copy remained in a display case in the owner's office. The second copy was given to the captain in charge of the ship. The third copy was offered to the godmother who threw the bottle on the hull.

These shipowner models were good promotional tools for institutional partners (bankers, shareholders, partners such as tourism or transport operators), but also for customers who frequented commercial premises.
The workmanship was often of very high quality: a faithful replica of the boat as it left the yards, exceptional attention to detail and the use of very beautiful materials. When the boat underwent major alterations or changed owners, a new model could be produced.

The Chargers Reunited Navigation Company was founded in 1872 in Le Havre by the Parisian banker Jules Vignal
Its steamships provide regular connections with Brazil and Argentina
The flagships are among others the City of Bahia, the City of Santos, the City of Janeiro
