This model brings to you an HO scale version of a vessel that would have been used around 1900 but common around 1930 and up using an internal combustion engine. These boats can still be found in operation today. The sardine/coastal freight carrier is a well-built vessel that was used to transport sardines from point of capture to the processing and canning plants along the coast of Maine. Vessel sizes varied from approx. 60 ' with 13' beams to 80 ' and 17 ' beams. Can be used as a coastal cargo vessel along the east or west coast.
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.
