“I have used your boat models in my classrooms in the pre-K, elementary, and middle school environments… These models offer versatility across the curriculum and an opportunity to offer hands-on instruction.”   − Robin, Educator

“I purchased some models for my 4th grade son Jacob for Christmas. He used the ships as the base for his school science project… He took top honors… and will represent his school in a science fair at our local fairgrounds.”    − Proud Parent of Science Fair Champ

Our Model Boats

We offer a wide range of model boat kits to suit your educational needs and budgets. Our model boats have been incorporated into curriculum for preschool to high school, special needs and at-risk youth programs, fund raisers and more.

Our “Pine Wood Sailer” fleet of models is comprised of boat types developed by diverse cultures from around the world. Assembly time is measured in minutes – their lessons last a lifetime.

The “Model Boat Plans” available on our website add another dimension to this educational experience. Written instructions and patters will enable students to fabricate boat parts and create models that really sail.

 

Want some ideas?

Building and sailing Seaworthy Small Ships model boats can be part of a multi-disciplinary curriculum. Travel to a nearby pond, incorporate an environmental lesson into your field trip then have students write about their observations and seafaring adventures in their own Ship’s Log.

Or, construct your own sailboat pond with our free instructions − a team-oriented experience your students will enjoy.
