OGAS boats have been handmade in Germany since 1898. Handcrafted from spruce wood grown in managed forests in Europe, their toy boats are eco-friendly. OGAS is the recipient of the prestigious “Spiel Gut” award for being both safe and environmentally friendly. With keels made of metal, the boats boast cotton sails and water-based, eco-friendly pigments and finishes. All of the rigging and knots are done by hand.
