Rustic, Naive and Metal Model Boats and Yachts

Light up Blue Trawler with LEDs - DGC2193013

Blue and white trawler  measuring 22 cms in height and runs on 2 AA batteries. Quite a chunky item with resin starfish on the sail. A useful white attached base if you are of the opinion that these yachts could be personalised.

£9.95 each



Rustic Weymouth Model Sail Boat - DG15561

Unique looking sailboat made of tin and wood, with a rustic style and measuring 31 cms in height. Shoppers occasionally ask us the relevance of the names of our boats, rightly enquiring if this boat is particular to Weymouth. We have never seen one of these in Weymouth, neither in the shops nor on residents' window sills. It's just a badge for the boat and when we pack it makes the morning or afternoon a little bit more interesting pausing to think that we have never seen one in that particular town. It's a lovely place to visit.

£14.95 each



Greek style rustic model 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.



West Bay Yacht - DGL8813

Wooden West Bay yacht with a pretty cloth sail and a very accurate model of a boat that has never been sailed in – we love the colours and have usually sold at least one of these by 11 o’clock in the shop. Measures 16 cms in height, 10 cms width and 3 cms deep.

£6.95 each



Wooden Anchor Boat - DGL8817

Here’s something different on the wooden yacht front. Check out the anchor...! An unique yacht in subtle pastel colours but is it a yacht with an anchor or an anchor with a yacht? Measures 32 cms in height, 24 cms in width and 5 cms deep. We trade online but also have a lovely little shop on Poole Quay where many of our internet buyers end up once in a while. Pay us a visit and we might do a deal with you on one of our Marshfield Ice Creams!

£13.95 each



Kimmeridge Model Yacht in Wood - DGL8827

Kimmeridge is a very small village on the coast of Dorset. We have never seen a yacht there, anywhere near there or actually anywhere along the Dorset Coast looking like this one and for this and no other reason we have decided to bestow the name “Kimmeridge” on this beautiful yacht as it’s one of our favourite and best selling yachts. Look at those beautiful colours! Measures 42 cms in height, 24 cms in length and 5 cms deep.

£9.95 each



Rustic Bridport Trawler in Blues - DGL6581a

Our preferred trawler in this size. Many of you may have heard of the infamous Brixham trawleres but we’re in Dorset so ours sound similar. It’s in the blues and measures 16 cms by 14 cms by 2 cms. These are hand painted so please look out for any minor blemishes in the paintwork which will make your trawler of the Bridport variety completely unique... under a tenner.

£9.95 each



Cherbourg Sailing Boat - DGL8798

We have called this little blue striped wooden sailing yacht a Chebourg sailing boat – to be frank, we have so many boats and have used all the West Country names up now so we are seeking inspiration a mere 60 miles away from Dorset, and seeing as the citizens of Cherbourg are always so delightful when we pop over to buy all their beer and garlic, along with the fact that there are hints of France in the sail colours, we believe the name is perfect. We reserve the right to not be sued if any of our customers do travel to Cherbourg and don’t manage to see one of these. Buy a piece of France measuring 17 cms high, 12 cms long and 3 cms deep. Hand painted by someone’s hand.

£4.95 each




Wooden Ship on Stand with Fish - DGL8162

New style wooden ship with bunting above and a fish below. Measures 30 cms in height, 13 cms wide and 4 cms deep.

£9.95 each



Faux Driftwood Yacht - DGL8157

Faux driftwood boat and a new look! Measures 28 cms in height, 22 cms wide and 5 cms deep. We have a limited amount of these as a new design which has had a lot of interest.

£14.95 each



Wooden Tug Boat - DGL8173

Measures 58 cms long, 20 cms high and 3 cms deep. And of course, like all tug boats were, this one is made of wood. A quirky design and certainly big enough to make a nautical statement!

£14.95 each



High Seas Sailboat - DGS6906

Our high seas model sailboat stands 12 cms in height, 10 cms wide, the depth is approximately 5 cms. A quirky nautical addition to the bathroom perhaps.

£7.95 each



Silver Coloured Sailboat Flotilla - DGS6869

Height 41 cms, width 29 cms, depth 11 cms


£59 each


Sailing the Seas - DGS6937

Height 12 cms, width 7 cms.


£11.95 each


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


Wooden Red Poole Tug Boat - DG15107

Tug boats, we see them come and go in Poole Harbour – this model is made of wood and measures 26 cms in length with a height of approximately 15 cms.

£4.95 each


Three Silver Coloured Sailboats - DG6868

Shoal of fish under a Yacht - DGS6959

Measuring 16 cms high, 9 cms wide and 2.5 cms deep. Metal based and very different. Who likes different? If you really like different by all means text us your email on 07711247762 and we will send images of one offs we occasionally acquire which we can send out off the website.

£8.95 each


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



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

£5.99 each



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!

£4.99 each
