How To Get A Boat Line Drawing For Your Boat

We’re all boaters - but not all of us are artists. Thankfully, the team at Custom Captain is well-versed in both custom artwork and boating apparel. If you’re looking for a line drawing of your boat to personalize a dri-fit shirt, travel mug, or other essential boating gear, our team is ready to turn your artistic vision into a reality.

Looking for some inspiration for your boat line drawing but not sure where to start? Don’t sweat it: our graphic design team will do the work for you! Simply snap a high-quality photo of your boat, and we’ll take it from there with our easy & speedy 4-step process.

Custom Captain’s customer reviews and Instagram page include photographs of past boating graphics to help you develop and share your ideas with our artists. The Custom Captain team has created countless drawings of yachts, sailboats, dinghies, and even seaworthy dogs, accompanied with fitting fonts and boat logos to meet the unique vision of each customer.  

How It Works: Our Simple 4-Step Process to Custom Digital Boat Artwork

1.Take a photograph of your boat. 

Simple, right? 

Yes, for the most part: we only ask that you use a few basic photography pointers when photographing your vessel, since this photo determines the quality of the final boat line drawing. 

Include your entire boat in the photo and get up close and personal, so that every detail of your vessel can be transformed into a complete boat line drawing. And as much as you might be tempted to capture the surrounding sunset, try to avoid bright lights, docks, and people - unless you want people included in the design, of course! Regardless of your vision for the final boat drawing, a sharp and clear image of your vessel is the first and most fundamental step.

2. Our artists transform your photo into a digital boat drawing.

To create a custom drawing of your boat, our graphic designers carefully recreate your boat in digital vector format. In addition to drawing the boat itself, boaters are encouraged to provide details that will make their boat line drawing even more personalized. Some customers work with our team to design their own boat logo, while others may have already designed their own. Don’t shy away from sharing logos, boat nicknames, and even mottos with our creative team: these small facts about your boat can add more personality (and even a dash of humor) to the digital vector drawing. 

3. Approve the proof of your boat line drawing!

Before printing on any boating gear or apparel, we’ll email you a high-resolution image proof to ensure that you’re 100% satisfied with your custom boat drawing. We offer unlimited revisions until the drawing meets (and hopefully exceeds!) your standards. The digital vector format makes it easy to print your boat drawing on any of our custom boat gear: our growing collection includes dri-fit boat shirts, custom boat koozies, and the classic custom boat print that can be framed and displayed in your personal gallery. 

4. Use your high-resolution file to print and display your custom boat art on posters, t-shirts, mugs, and more.

Whether you’re sipping or sailing, our extensive product catalog has 30+ items to offer you & the entire crew. Your new boat drawing can be printed on a custom mug, neck gaiter, stainless steel tumbler, or matching dri-fit shirts to outfit everyone onboard. Our custom boating apparel is especially popular: we use high-quality, SPF 50 material for all of our shirts and sweatshirts, which will protect boaters for years of maritime adventures.
