We cater for a wide range of marine art commissions. Some of our clients are private yacht owners looking to memorialise their vessel in paint, whereas others want to delve into naval history with marine artists specialised in the subject.

Ship portraiture itself has a long history dating back to the 16th century onwards when artists would stand on the piers with their portfolios waiting for captains to dock and commission a portrait of their ship.

Today the genre is a diverse mixture of straightforward vessel portraits from privately owned cutters to fishing trawlers to oil tankers. We draw on the expertise of the Royal Society of Marine Artists to commission a range of paintings and sculpture within this field.  In addition to portraits of private and corporate-owned vessels we commission artist’s renderings of classic yacht races as well as depictions of historic ships or famous battles.
