At Ocean & Architectural Models Ltd we specialise in the creation of bespoke ship models and offshore installations. Our collection showcases a particular interest in the historically significant category of Work Boats. Predominantly represented as tugs or towing vessels, these unique marine powerhouses are designed with the primary purpose of providing propulsive power to other vessels. Their robust and rugged designs, coupled with their essential functionality, make them a fascinating subject for model enthusiasts and maritime historians alike.

Our model Work Boats are more than just scaled-down representations; they are handcrafted works of art, meticulously shaped and assembled by our master craftsmen. The precision and accuracy of each model is a testament to the years of experience and skill that our craftsmen bring to the table. This high level of craftsmanship is further enhanced by the support of our team of technicians, who come from solid backgrounds in engineering and design.

As we delve into the realm of custom models, we understand that individuality is key. The majority of the models we build are commissioned projects by companies or individuals, each with their unique requirements and specifications. These projects can range from a single model to a series of models of the same ship. Our success in delivering these bespoke projects is largely credited to the close collaboration we maintain with our clients, keeping them informed of the progress at all stages.

Thanks to modern communication channels, we can exchange technical data, drawings and pictures, quickly and conveniently via e-mail. Our technicians are adept at using and applying CAD (Computer-Aided Design), which greatly enhances the accuracy and detail of our models.

The history of Work Boats is as intriguing as the vessels themselves. They have been integral to marine operations for centuries, assisting larger vessels in navigation and docking, and even rescuing stranded vessels. Our models aim to capture a slice of this rich maritime history, providing a tangible connection to the past for our clients and enthusiasts.

So whether you are a maritime enthusiast, a history buff or simply appreciate the art of model making, our collection of model Work Boats offers a unique blend of art, history and engineering that is sure to captivate your interest.
