The Sopranino is an example of some of the individualistic work carried out by Woottens. The boat was designed by the yacht designers Colin Mudie and Patrick Ellan. Sopranino took between seven and eight months to complete and cost £700 in 1950. 

On her completion the 18-ft craft became the smallest ship to cross the Atlantic, 1951. Though this record has since been broken, the Sopranino herself is still on display at the American Maritime Museum.
