Robin Knox-Johnston and a famous marine painting

The famous marine painting “Roaring Forties” is a real piece of marine history, much reproduced by journals when writing about Robin Knox-Johnston and a very collectible limited edition and signed by the yachtsman Sir Robin Knox Johnston.Roaring_Forties_300_pixels.jpg

It was as you may be aware produced specially for and in close collaboration with Britain’s most illustrious yachtsman and master mariner, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.

We had a brief, charming compliament recently re the beautiful Heritage quality marine print of “Roaring Forties”, one of those thing which helps make our work feel worth while. 

A constant concern of ours is  with quality of reproduction of our pictures on the Internet, the original and the prints look far better than any computer generated image.

The kind remarks below illustrate the point more effectively than we can, read on, enjoy!

This was from a person I met at the Wayfarer World Championship who’s birthday coincidentally is the 16th of December, the same date Robin Knox-Johnston experienced the dramatic moment shown in the painting.



I have received the print and I absolutely love it! I had no idea it would be so alive and so much akin to a real painting. Thanks ever so much.

Kind regards,

J. Browning, Engineer.
