This photo is great as it has the sails up, the light shines through the sails and there are people on deck, a nice personal touch!


While this is a beautiful sunset photo, it is too dark for making a personalised item. There is no definition of the boat and the background interfers with its shape.


Select high-resolution, clear photos with balanced lighting and a clean background to optimize your boat design.

Please note that photos with poor quality, such as low resolution, excessive blurriness, or inadequate lighting, won’t be accepted. This is to ensure the best outcome for your boat design.
