"I wanted something very special for my daughter as she was leaving for university. The boat was a beautiful way of doing this. It is hand made from vintage shipping charts, arrived in lovely packaging in good time. My daughter loves it!

Highly recommended, helpful company."


Our lovely Paper Boats come in many different styles and appeal to everyone.  


 They make great  unique card alternatives and make truly lasting and lovely keepsakes.


They can be made from nautical charts,  with literary quotes from your favourite books, 

with reloved musical sheets or beautiful designs and papers 

with standard greetings messages for special occassions 

or fully bespoke & personalised with special words and messages on the Mainsail.


You can even add Latitude & Longitude co-ordinates to mark a special place in time,

add a matching Gift Tag and a lovely Anchor Charm, tied with a bowline knot,

or perhaps a Message in a Bottle or even add in cufflinks or a fantastic finger puppet

for  an additional surprise guaranteed to delight!
