Racing Yacht No 95 - DG55588

Another great value small racing yacht, well - 20 cms long so not really that small and great value at under a fiver.

All our boats are made of wood, some really lend themselves to personalisation, perhaps to be adapted for wedding table or nautical dinner décor.  This one particularly, with space for personalisation has been singled out a few times by our customers.

£4.99 each


Lateen Rig Sailboat - DG55191

These should cost more! At 19 cms in length our lateen rig sailboats offer excellent value, especially if required in bulk and do please call us for a quotation if this is the case. 

Lateen boats date back to the Roman times and allow the boat to tack against the wind. These are often seen as dhows in the Indian Ocean - bring a little bit of the Indian Ocean home!

Naive Style Items

You'll see a few mentions of "naive" styles over the listings below. You'd be far from "naive" if you made a purchase as the term refers to Naive Art, an approach to painting and design which uses little scientific perspective but lots of bright colours. Consequently these items offer refreshingly simple design - we refer to their appearance as the St Ives look - and they'll sit comfortably in any surroundings and are great nautical decor items.


Naive Style Boat - 62625

Naive Style Model Boat

This decoartive model boat has a wood hull and metal sail, with red stars on the sail.
12.5 x 13.5 x 3cm

£5.99 each
£10 for 2

Metal Decorative Model Yacht

A little smaller than the metal giant boat but still with lots of detail and 54 cms high and 40 cms across.

£29.95 each OUT OF STOCK


Pair of Wooden Ahoi Boats - DG7214

This is the price for 2 boats and the reason for this folks, is we keep getting left with either one or the other. Both designs look great and better in company. They’re not small either and measure 35 cms in height and are approximately 17 cms wide. We like “Ahoi” written on the sails and we like the colours. Great for the bathroom!
