Large Fireboat


I have for sale a large 48” Fireboat. Don’t know what kit it is. I have not run it.
It’s in pretty decent shape, but needs some TLC to get it back in shape.
Some of the railing needs fixing, and the water lines need replacing.
It has twin can motor drive. A water pump is installed.
View the photos for condition, or come over to see it.
It’s 4 ft long with a 12” beam. Weight is estimated at 40 lb.
Local pickup only
Send a PM if interested.

Its probably built on the Microglass fiberglass hull which is a scaled up replica of the NYC firefighter kit.

Could be Robbe hull


If hull is ABS plastic it is built on what looks like a Robbe Düsseldorf hull. I was able to purchase separately the replacement hull from Robbe way back when.

I was thinking that as well but the light yellowish-brown of the hull that can be seen in the picture with the steering servo suggests fiberglass.

That is my suspicion. Made by Karl when he ran Microglass. I have not molded one of those hulls since I took over the molds
