More Than Toy Boats

Seaworthy Small Ships’ models are more than just toy boats — THEY REALLY SAIL.  Inspired by years of experience with model boat builders, we have developed a unique fleet of handcrafted, free sailing, wooden model boat kits.  Kids, adults and families love our boats. Whether a beginner or experienced modeler, you will find these kits rewarding, entertaining and fun. Building, sailing and collecting these classic model boats is a hobby everyone enjoys.  Our models are used by organizations for fund raising, educational activities and “Kids at Risk” programs.
