What Robbe say :-

Scale model of an ocean-going salvage tug to 1 : 50 scale
The Happy Hunter is a scale reproduction of a Dutch ocean-going salvage tug to a scale of 1 : 50.
The boat is powered by a direct-drive, i.e. non-geared system, in the form of two high-torque Power 755/40 electric motors. These are low-revving power plants driving a pair of high-performance marine propellers. Fixed Kort nozzles increase thrust, and the boat is capable of carrying out extremely arduous towing tasks and complex manoeuvres in conjunction with the bow thruster, which is an optional accessory. The capacious plastic hull allows the modeller to install numerous auxiliary working systems, and experienced builders will enjoy fitting out the Happy Hunter with a working lighting system, radar, anchor winch, sound system and towing mechanism. It is even possible to install a fully working crane; the crane itself is included in the kit.

Length: 1035 mm
Width: 235 mm
Weight: 9500 g
Scale: 1:50


Now, I bought this Tug a few years ago, and have had fun in using on my local lake. She will come with 2 speed controllers for the main motors, the motors, servo for the rudders. Bow thruster (but no speed controller) [I've only once tried to use the bow thruster and it sounded like it had jumped the gears so I didn't bother as i didn't need it] and all the wire thats in the boat. The radar goes around and the boat lights up, but I've never bothered as it was just another battery to squeeze into my "at the time" small car!!!!

The boat will require, Radio transmitter and reciever, Mixer for the 2 speed controllers or a y lead, (that is unless you want to use a 4 ch transmitter and 'tank steer'), and 2 12v gel cell batteries!

I've not used the boat for the last 12months, as I've been busy playing with full size ones! but I tested everything with so 'bad' batteries and everything worked

I've taken a picture of the rear deck which is the only part of the boat that will need work. I've been using it for towing competitions (i've left the tow rope) and due to this the more fragile bits have taken some abuse (as you can see in the photo)


This will be collection only as its a fragile boat! and also cash on collection!!!! NO PAYPAL

any more questions just ask
