53’ Coastal Passenger Steam Ferry – Fully built/painted/finished model ready for your waterfront layout, diorama, mantel or bookcase
Actual size of craft: Length 7 1/4”, Width 2 1/8 ” HO Scale length approx. 53’
These vessels would have been designed, built, owned, and operated by local families, captains, railroads, or investors, etc. The steamer that we present through this model is similar to the one we are familiar with called the Sabino or originally called the Tourist. The Sabino is up and running in Mystic Ct.at the Maritime Museum. This model is not a model of the Sabino, but similar, and would have been used for very similar purposes. It will carry a lot of passengers, mail, and heavy cargo and attempt to keep schedules. It will make multiple stops at various islands and mainland harbors to deliver and pick up mail, produce, dry goods, live stock, groceries, etc. etc.
This fine waterline model was hand crafted, finely painted and detailed by our Professional Craftsman model boat builder.
We sincerely hope you enjoy this model and that it brings further realism to your layout tied up at the dock or on the open water, or as it gives you pleasure just looking at it on your mantle or bookcase.
