RNLB Charles Brown759 viewsBig, impressive, 1/12th scale Arun lifeboat; a spectacular and seaworthy model, here seen running trials before the addition of the final details.
The model was featured in "Marine Modelling" magazine.

America267 viewsThe schooner "America" was built by a syndicate of new England yachtsmen as a business proposition, to collect some of the prize money available in yacht racing, and to win wagers. She succeeded handsomely. In 1851, she trounced the finest yachts sailing in British waters, in a race around the Isle of Wight. Queen Victoria was most ungracious about it. When told the American yacht had won, she grumped "very well, who is second?". She was not amused to be told "madam, there is no second".

Bounty (wreck)294 viewsFrank Hasted admits it took all his skill to rescue this very rough "Bounty" hull which a client brought to him, but our before-and-after pictures show that even the worst part-built project can be brought to a successful conclusion.

Peggy (detail)573 viewsA professional commission for a model of this nature is usually a once-in-a-lifetime purchase. I have had some extremely satisfied clients for models of this size. It will bring you the most enormous pleasure, and it will continue to do so for many years.
Eagle-eyed readers may recognise one of the photos from "Model Boats" magazine, in which it has featured.

America (detail)292 viewsIt is, however, indisputable that she was a most beautiful yacht, low, sleek and graceful. We built this magnificent replica for a client who was in love with the original vessel. She is finished and fitted out in fine timber on the basis of a specially commissioned short-run GRP hull. (We can do this for you too if you like; pick your prototype and we can get it mastered and moulded to a high standard at a most competitive rate). She makes a beautiful display piece, well detailed and elegant. On a gentle sort of day, she also has a most pleasing performance on the water. Overall, she is one of the loveliest things we have built.

Shamrock V (J Class)299 viewsMarking the end of one era and the beginning of a new one, "Shamrock V" was the last Americas Cup challenger built for Sir Thomas Lipton, who had tried, unsucessfully, to regain the cup, for many years. She was also the first British J class yacht.
