Personalised Boat Illustration


A perfect memento for every boat lover - wether its a yacht, narrow boat, speed boat or anything that floats! The drawing style is clean and contemporary with the sky and surroundings picked out in a range of colours. 

Every illustration can be further personalised with a printed message. Choose from 3 typefaces (script, handwritten or a modern sans-serif). Your text will be printed on 2 lines, the top line being a slightly larger size. If you've asked for a digital proof, we will email you a pdf of your illustration to check. We offer up to 3 amends to your original drawing. For further changes there will be an additional charge.

About the illustration
Your Illustration will be hand drawn black & white sketch of the boat, not a computer generated image, so we can add/remove things you don’t want. We will sketch the view from the photograph (ie the same perspective), and don't include people. It’s a simplified drawing of the boat in black & white and we colour the sky duck-egg blue, sea darker blue etc.
