Please note that we operate and ship from the United States. Since the COVID outbreak, international shipments are taking much longer than normal to process through customs in both the US as well as the parcels final destination.
We are currently offering Curbside Pickup for orders Monday through Friday. If you wish to visit the store you MUST make an appointment first. We require 24 hours advanced notice by phone or email, and we limit visits to one customer at a time. Our email address is email@example.com and phone number (510)889-6000.
While it takes longer for us to receive our shipments from Europe, we're still keeping well stocked. Big shipments are coming in all the time, and we're even managing to add new kits and new product lines all the time. So, please make sure to check back regularly to see what's new.
NEW PRODUCT LINE:
Ages of Sail is proud to carry this new line of wooden ship model kits from England.
These wooden sailing ship kits are designed and developed by world-renowned kit designer Chris Watton.
Established in 2019, the line currently consists of five kits, designed to be as accurately produced as possible in both scale and detail, and engineered to be as easy to construct as possible.

FREE AMATI PARTS REPLACEMENT
Break or lose a part from an Amati model kit that you purchased from us? No problem!
Ages of Sail is the North American distributor for Amati Model, and we're able to provide our customers with replacement parts should you break or lose a part from your Amati model kit purchased from us or one of the retailers we supply.
When contacting us, be sure to indicate the specific model kit, description of the missing or broken part (a photo or scan from the plans or instructions is helpful), and the purchase date and retailer name.
AGES OF SAIL stocks more ship model kits and accessories than anybody. We sell kits from US manufacturers as well as from abroad, importing wooden ship model kits and other kits from more than two dozen overseas manufacturers. We have classic ship model kits for display in your home, office, or museum, plus modern RC boat kits for water operation.
As the North American distributor of Amati Model products, we're able to offer the best in after purchase support. So, if you lose or break something from an Amati kit you bought from us or one of our dealers, we can provide you with the fastest possible replacement support.
If you're new to the hobby, we recommend you start small, as wood ship model building can be quite challenging. So, consider starting out with a simpler kit. Constructo makes a nice line of ship model kits that include tools. These particular kits have solid wooden hulls, simplifying construction considerably, allowing you to focus on the detail work of the model. Then, with a little experience, you can easily move on to a more complicated planked hull, like one of the Amati America's Cup kits. Because of the shape of these hulls, they are quite easy to plank, and make lovely display models, with simple rigging.
Whatever your choice, Ages of Sail is here to provide you with the best options for modelers of all ages. Check out our products and please let us know if you have any questions!
