Lady Of Wroxham
This launch is based on one of the many Ex service launches constructed around 1920 and used for general duties in rivers, estuaries in the U.K. for the Royal Navy.Constructed from the very best materials, and designed to be worked hard, they were then sold out of service and used as work boats and for pleasure craft. Many are still in regular use and are often seen at boat gatherings in many parts of the country.
The particular craft we have modelled is of a launch based on the river Thames and is used as a day boat and picnic launch. She is powered by a modern Perkins diesel engine and is designed to be as silent as possible, the forward accommodation consists of 2 x bunks, a small kitchen and heads plus storage space.
The kit is based on a glass fibre hull with rubbing strip and detail moulded into the surface of the hull. The deck planking is supplied cut to width in Mahogany and Obeche. A full set of fittings in cast alloy is included in the kit, along with a full size colour printed plan and a comprehesive set of instructions.
