About Nauticalia
Nauticalia began in 1974, as a floating marine antiques shop in a converted rubbish barge on the River Thames at
Shepperton. Lynn Lewis, an ex-BBC television reporter, and his wife Val, also a journalist, were the founders. As stocks of
nautical antiques rapidly diminished, Lynn commissioned a batch of ten detailed replicas from a specialist metal works,
and thus began Nauticalia's famous range of reproduction boating and shipping memorabilia.
