Joffre Tyne Tug Boat


Brand New Open Box Model boat kit of the Joffre Tyne Tug Boat... $297.77 FREE SHIPPING

Box Contents:

Model has a plain GRP hull with CNC cut superstructure and deck, screen printed overlays and over 300 cast white metal fittings, including the ships crew and the ships dog.To complete the kit, all the necessary timber, cordage and vacuum formed lifeboats are supplied. As the Joffre saw service through two world wars it gives scope for additional detailing and a wartime paint scheme.





Ardrossan Dry Dock & Shipbuilding Co Ltd completed the Joffre Tug Boat after launching the build in 1915. The ship was first used for Admiralty service as a rescue boat. In 1925, whilst sailing from Falmouth to Antwerp she encountered heavy fog and came ashore. The repairs carried out in Falmouth as a result of this cost in excess of 3,000 in 1925. The Joffre suffered further damages when she was run down around the South Shields area in 1953. She was eventually broken up in 1966 but has since been commemorated for her wartime service.
