Boat Lettering | Custom Transoms | San Francisco Bay Area

We’ve mastered the art of hand-painted, gold-leafed transoms. Art Works is your Bay Area specialist for custom boat lettering

Art Works understands that your vessel is an extension of yourself—a symbol of your hard work, love of the sea, fishing prowess or well-deserved leisure time spent with family and friends. Your boat is as much a showpiece as it is a vehicle—loved and cared for throughout the year. Choosing its name was a big decision, so don’t trust just anyone to emblazon that moniker on its surfaces. Art Works has the skill and experience needed to ensure your boat’s name is displayed boldly with pride and class—just the way it should be.

Hand-painted lettering is a unique skillset mastered by our artists and executed with precision and expertise. We are known for our durable methods and artistic use of shadowing to heighten visibility and add charm. And we specialize in gilded work, including 23 karat gold leaf with custom-blended color accents to match your boat’s upholstery.

Let us add beauty and drama to your prized cabin cruiser, small craft yacht or fishing vessel with:

  • Hand painted boat lettering in a variety of styles and fonts to match your style
  • Custom-blended colors to match your boat’s upholstery
  • Shadowing and shading that provide depth and increase visibility of your boat’s name
  • Professional application and products designed specifically for water vessels
  • Gilded lettering and accent options that incorporate 23 karate gold leaf and offer a rich and classic look

Art Works wants to do our part to help boat owners like you sail with pride and distinction by providing beautiful hand-painted lettering. There are many reasons that we’ve been trusted for so many years as a premier vendor on restoration projects for Chris Craft, Riva, Hacker and other antique classic wooden boats. In addition, our lettering has been proudly featured on numerous award-winning boats competing at the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation’s annual Concours d’Elegance.
