Enterprise (J Class)397 viewsLike all American J boats, "Enterprise" had a short life. She was made obsolete by changes in the J class rule in 1932, which made her stripped-out interior illegal. She could not carry the interior fittings required without badly compromising her performance. She spent most of her last years laid up, and was dismantled in 1935.
Yet she is of immense historic importance. Many of the innovations she pioneered are commonplace on today's racing yachts. Not the best-known of the J boats, she is still one of the most interesting. Our model is a fitting reminder of this fascinating yacht. We would be honoured to create one for you.

Euterpe418 viewsThe Clipper ship "Euterpe" was built on the Isle of Man for the Australian trade. She was one of the first iron ships. After an eventful life, she is now preserved as the "Star of India" at San Diego, California. We built this lovely glass-case replica for a gentleman whose grandfather had been the ship's sailmaker, in the days when she ran her easting down, around the howling Horn.

Eye of the Wind390 viewsThe lovely little sail training ship "Eye of the Wind" is one of Frank Hasted's favorite ships. He has had many happy times afloat on her. This model was made for his beloved Lesley, to commemorate her introduction to offshore sailing, steering the ship on her eightieth birthday in a full gale.
If there is a ship which holds particularly happy memories for you, we will be happy to build a high quality miniature replica for you, too. One day, if the demands of the business ever give us enough time, I may ask Frank to build "Hoshi" for me; but that's another story!

"Robert Hastie"414 viewsMost of our commissions are for private clients, but we happily undertake corporate commissions when called upon to do so. Here you can see a pair of cased models of the Milford Haven Port Authority's new pilot-boat "Robert Hastie", photographed in their boardroom.

"Robert Hastie"391 viewsDesigned by Camarc, a world specialist in this type of vessel (they have also designed boats for the New York pilot service), the "Robert Hastie" is a fine vessel of the most modern type. The model captures her powerful lines and distinctive appearance in every detail.

"Robert Hastie" (research pic)393 viewsAll our models are fully researched. During this project, we took over two hundred photographs of the real boat, which was also building at the time. A couple of pictures are included here out of interest, showing details of the forrard and after hatch structures.

Lexington389 viewsWe created this lovely model of the American privateer "Lexington", a vessel famous from the War of Independence, for a private collector.
While the model faithfully follows the best available historic material on the vessel, it is in fact modified from a well-known plank-on-frame kit. This enabled us to complete the model within a shorter construction time, and thus keep the cost down.
This sort of ingenious solution is typical of the bespoke service we offer clients. She is also a quite exquisite model.
