Hull Length:740mm (29") Beam:270mm (10.5") Scale:1/15th
This is a very close to scale version of a modern twin-screw trawler yacht, a type of boat that has become increasingly popular by providing high standards of sea-worthiness together with spacious and comfortable accommodation. The full-size versions of this particular example were originally built in Taiwan, from where they were imported into the UK by Neptune Yachts of Southampton. The hull is moulded with bulwarks and rubbing strips, the full central keel, and also the two propeller shaft outlets. Twin 385 type motors are all that is needed to power the model in a realistic manner, and if you like working with intricate deck planking, you’ll enjoy building this model. The example of Neptune in the first photo was built by Canadian customer Bill Burtwell, and it’s shown sailing on a lake in Calgary, Alberta. Also, several customers have used this hull to build models of small fishing boats of various types, including American shrimpers & tuna fishing craft.
