Rustic, Naive and Metal Model Yachts


High Seas Sailboat - DGS6906

£7.95 each

£59 each


Sailing the Seas - DGS6937

Height 12 cms, width 7 cms.

Brittany Tug Boat - DGS7331

Our tug boat isn’t really from Brittany and we mention this as a disclaimer as we wouldn’t want any of our lovely customers to take a ferry to this beautiful part of the world expecting a harbour full of them. You can see them in our shop in Poole though – unless of course we have run out of stock. On the shelf they measure 30 cms in length and 22cms in height so big enough not to have to ask the sales assistant where they are. Pick up a stick of rock too or if buying online mention a stick of rock and I’m sure we can add a stick with Poole written through – for customers outside the UK this is just not particularly funny British seaside humour.

£15.95 each


Purbeck Yacht with Striped Sail - DGZY176

Purbeck yacht in all the blues and standing 30 cms in height (all assembled).  Shabby look and a nice whitewashed hull - simple and  recommended.  Poole harbour as the background (opposite our  shop).

Brittany Sail Boat - DG55596

Brittany Sail Boat Model


We have had a few similar to these over the years but not at anywhere near this price for a wooden yacht that measures 22 cms in height and has a maximun width of 16 cms. Nice details with the small wooden buoys on the sail and the cloth additions. Oh, the back is the same but just does not  have the number 16 on the hull.

£6.95 each



Dinghy with Red and Blue Sails - DG75142

Rustic Yacht - DG7606


Nicely sized rustic style small yacht. We like the off white sails and detail of these boats. 31 cms high, 19 cms long with a maximum depth of approximately 3 cms. Interesting detail and hand painted with a colour that would blend well with other nautical blues and whites. Simple but stylish seaside decor.

31 x 19 x 3 cms

Blue Striped Yacht - DG7191L

These yachts are pleasantly put together and made of wood held to a fixed base and with cloth sails. The detail includes rope, shells and a resin starfish. She stands at 40 cms in height and 26 cms wide so a winner for window displays. Our best selling rustic style yacht in this size bracket - go on shipmates, add one to the shopping cart!

£9.95 each


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



Greek style rustic sail boat - DG52904

Is it Greek style, we personally think and it has got nothing to do with the fact that we have so many boats on our website that most names hav already been taken. Having said that, I could see these on the tables of a small Greek taverna overlooking the monastery island in Corfu.  23 cms high and 20 cms wide. Rustic colours and a new one for us that’s selling well.
