A personalised watercolour sketch of your boat, based on your photograph and hand-drawn by artists working in Devon.
We can draw a variety of boats, from yachts and sailing boats, to speedboats, catamarans and canal boats! As long as you provide a photo or weblink, we can draw it! We draw in a sketchy style to capture the boat, and colour in our painterly watercolour style. The illustration is personalised with your chosen words, or enter NA in the order form, and we will only include the image.
Please note we draw from your photo, with the boat in situ (for example if it is in dock with other boats we will sketch them and the dock), and we exclude people.
How do I send my photo? Upload a digital photo, send us a website link or email email@example.com with multiple images.
What do you draw? We sketch from the perspective in the photograph and include some background such as sea, sky and landscape. The illustration is coloured and digitally printed.
Can I check what you’ve drawn? Yes - just select yes to a digital proof in the order from, and we’ll email a proof for you to check and make any changes to.
Want another style? See our other listings for house portraits, pencil sketches and detailed drawings. We also draw pets, people, sports stadiums, favourite places…

Excellent boat sketch for my father's 70th birthday! Wonderful memories of sailing adventures on this boat made for a personal and touching present. Gifted on the doorstep due to lockdown. Thank you Letterfest!
My dad is very difficult to buy gifts for.
This was a brainwave - to turn a picture of his little yacht into a personalised print.
It looks beautiful and he loved it!
Really easy to use the website and create the order and excellent customer service too.
Thank you Letterfest!
Although the photo I had was not well defined the final result was great. Being able to check the proofs and easily and quickly see the alterations was great. Many thanks.
Thank you Letterfest for taking the trouble to get this picture just right! I am delighted.
