Welcome to Classics Illustrated

This web-site is dedicated to the beauty of classic wooden boats. Sweden is a country with a living woodenboat culture from the vikings to C G Pettersson*, due to its many lakes and long coastline. The Swedish pleasureboats of the last century are well known for their beauty and craftmanship.

Several owners of classic boats have orderd original illustrations made by me, based on blueprints, photos etc. If you are interested in an original illustration of your own boat I am happy to provide a quotation. Samples of my work are shown in my catalouge and in the shop at the National Maritime Museum in Stockholm.

I also sell posters and copies of my artwork, mounted in passepartout, ready to frame. I have posters and illustrations in stock and deliver worldwide.

Please look around!
