We print on thick, archival, acid-free matte paper stock with archival pigment-based inks for sharp details and brilliant colors.

Our black contemporary gallery frames feature solid wood mouldings and acrylic glazing. We use acrylic because of its superior UV protection, shipping durability, light weight, and excellent clarity. Hanging hardware included.

Our print customization form loads on the page with a number of mandatory fields and options. Review, change, and edit these options as you like. Upload a photo of your boat as directed. We will determine the hull colors and features from this photo.

You will receive an order confirmation email that includes a detailed list of the personalization options that you selected. Please review this email for accuracy. We give you 24 hours to request changes. Email support@dogwatchart.com and include your order number and requested changes.

After 24 hours have passed, we begin creating your order. We will send you a digital proof to the email address provided during checkout, typically within 3 business days. We give you 24 hours from that email to either approve it or request edits. If we do not hear from you within those 24 hours, we will move on to printing to ensure a quick delivery process.

We aim to have your custom print order on its way within 8 business days from the time you place it.

We'll start working with your order 24 hours after we receive it, and we'll take roughly 3 business days to provide you with a proof for your approval and an additional 5 business days to print, frame, pack and ship it. No frame? We'll get it out the door a couple of days sooner.

Shipping transit times vary throughout the year, and by location. In the US, you should receive your order, once it ships, within 3-4 business days. For further information, please visit our Support page.

We do not mark up shipping costs. Charges are calculated and displayed at checkout.

2024 Edition Custom Half Hull Prints

Made For You

We've pumped up the volume with our all-new 2024 edition of our Custom Half Hull Prints with higher fidelity, airbrush-quality, hand-drawn yacht illustrations. Upload a photo of your boat's hull, and we'll match the colors and features. Add unique details with our exclusive personalization options. Choose the background color, boat name, and hull number, and add a caption. We'll apply your personalization choices to create a one-of-a-kind item. Then, we'll print, frame, and ship it directly to any doorstep.

Our Standard Flush Deck Half Hull Print, offered with our standard custom art fee, is drawn to include all details from the sheer line down. Add deck details, including rails, winches, cleats, hatches, and cabin, for an additional fee.

How to create your original custom half hull print.

Step 1:

Choose a great photo.

Find the best profile picture of your boat that captures the entire hull. Use a high quality phone camera for a clear, high-resolution image. Don't have a photo? If your boat is a well-known model or class, we can typically find enough reference imagery to get the lines just right. Simply upload the best photo you can find, and we'll handle the rest.

Step 2:

Provide us with some details.

Use the custom product form above to upload your photo and provide us with some personalization details. We ask for class/model name, model year, hull number, and name of your vessel. We also give you the opportunity to add a caption to your print, choose a size, and add a frame.

Step 3:

Hold fast while we work.

We get to work within 24 hours to create your half hull print, expertly applying all of the hull details found in your photo and the personalization information that you provided to us.

Step 4:

Approve, print, and ship.

We'll send you a digital proof for your approval, and we'll make any edits that you like. Then, once you're happy with your print, we'll print, frame, and send it on its way.

Frequently Asked Questions

The photo of your hull is the most important part of your order. Please follow the guidelines below, so we can represent your yacht authentically.

Take a photo or choose an existing photo that is taken in daylight.

Use a smartphone or high quality camera.

Be sure the photo of your boat is taken from the side and includes as much of the keel and rudder as possible.

Do not use filters on the photos, so that we can be sure we see the correct paint colors.

Yes. Typically within 3 business days, you will receive an email asking you to review and approve your proof. We give you 24 hours to approve or request changes. After 24 hours have passed, we proceed to printing to ensure a speedy delivery.

In many cases we can find a complete set of lines from our archive or online and proceed with your order. Place your order with the best photo you can find, and we will take it from there. If for some reason we get stumped, we'll refund your order immediately with our apologies. Or, we'll create a print down to the waterline. The choice is yours.

Depending on your order, multiple items could ship separately. Framed prints need to ship individually, however prints can often be bundled together. We do our best to minimize shipping costs.

The custom art fee covers our cost to produce the custom art for your print. The fee is automatically added to cart when you order a print. This is a one-time fee per boat. These means you can order more than one print without being charged again for the artwork.

Yes. If you've ordered with us before, we can reprint your order. We save all of the artwork we produce. We'll simply need your original order number to track it down. And, you guessed it, we won't need to charge you for the custom art. If you're interested in a reprint, email us at mike@dogwatchart.com to get the ball rolling.

Mike did quite an excellent job making a beautiful drawing from a few very old grainy photos and some web links with just one round of very picky and personal revisions. My dad loves it. Thank you! I am sure to have a few more coming your way.
