An elderly model enthusiast relative, who no longer wishes to sail, built the vessel over a 2 year period. It has not been used for 3 years, but was regularly sailed prior to this.
Due to fragile nature, this is for collection only
Below is the Robbe Specification
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 modeler 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.
