Happy Hunter Salvage Tug Kit
The Happy Hunter is a scale reproduction of a Dutch ocean-going salvage tug to a scale of 1:50.
The salvage tug is powered by a direct-drive (non-geared) system, in the form of two high-torque MAX Power 700 electric motors. These are low-revving power plants driving a pair of high-performance marine propellers.
Fixed Kort nozzles increase thrust, and the boat is capable of carrying out extremely arduous towing tasks and complex manoeuvres in conjunction with the bow thruster, which is an optional accessory. The spacious plastic hull allows the modeller to install numerous auxiliary working systems, and experienced builders will enjoy fitting out the Happy Hunter with a working lighting system, radar, anchor winch, sound system and towing mechanism. It is even possible to install a fully working crane; the crane itself is included in the kit.
