Diva cabin cruiser
Semi-scale kit of a 1960's cabin cruiser, of all-wood construction. The cabin superstructure is removable, affording good access to the battery, power system and radio control system.
All parts are die-cut for fast assembly. In addition to the building instructions the kit also includes a detailed plan, all wooden parts and fittings, shaft and propeller, and a jig for assembling the bulkheads, which greatly simplifies construction.
The only tools required are: scissors, drill, screwdriver, pins, clothes pegs, adhesive tape and glasspaper.

Specification
Length 580 mm
Width 180 mm

Race 400 6 V electric motor

Sharky, is this supposed to be a model of a real boat, or the company's creation ?
