The Motor Fifie 'Amaranth' was built originally as a Sailing Herring Drifter. However, due to the expansion of the Steam powered fishing fleet, these boats with small oil powered motors enabled them to compete. They were popular and very successful fishing boats and continued to be built until the early thirties and were still earning money for their owners two decades later.

This kit is based on a one piece ABS vac formed hull. CNC cut ply parts make the kit an ideal introduction to the world of marine modeling.

As well as cast white metal fittings the kit is supplied with a motor mount, prop shaft and propeller, vac formed life boat and a pre-stitched sail.

The model is designed to take Radio Control or can be built for display.
