Competition: Dezeen and toy company Papafoxtrot have teamed up to offer readers the chance to win one of six hand crafted wooden boats, each worth more than £100.
Papafoxtrot was founded by Ian Ferguson and Martin Postler of London design consultancy Postlerferguson.
The toy boats are designed in the shape of the most famous cargo ships in the world. A three-colour boat with container blocks stacked on top is in shape of the longest cargo ship, Emma Maersk.
The flat single-colour one is in the shape of the TI Asia cargo ship that used to carry 3 million barrels of oil.
The four half-spheres on the third product represent the gas containers on the largest gas cargo ship, Arctic Princess, which use to carry nearly 150,000 cubic meters of liquified natural gas.
This competition is now closed.
Congratulations to the winners! Ricardo Leon from Denmark, Viliam Zilinek from Slovakia, Mark Noad from the UK, Kevin Hirth from the USA, Antoine Chatiliez from France and Filip Strebeyko from Sweden all won a wooden boat.
