Among the finest model boats Australia has on offer, The Big Basket’s range includes the famed Australia II, crafted from original plans, right down to the design of the controversial winged keel.
For those looking for aged beauty, we stock a wide range of earlier model yachts, including the Atlantic – the fastest boat to cross the Atlantic Ocean for nearly a century, and Bluenose – the pride of Nova Scotia. We also offer a selection of simple sailing boats, row boats and schooners.
Our models are uncompromising in detail, quality and style. Handmade by the experts in model boats. Each model requires only minimum assembly. Just put up the masts and admire its grace. Each is a piece out of time. So well replicated, you can almost see the wind flutter the sail.
