Whether you’re already an avid sailor or just dream of taking to the open water, the UGears Trimaran Merihobus allows you to bring your love of boats alive even when you’re landlocked. Model builders who are both advanced or growing their skills will find a great experience awaiting them as they embark on their ship-building journey with this trimaran sailboat.
You’re sure to enjoy the beautiful nautical details of this realistic trimaran model in miniature. The boat’s hulls, frames, rigging and bulkheads are on full display so that once completed, the skeleton-style trimaran can be viewed and appreciated in its full glory. The realistic details of the sailboat are startling and impressive to take in, but the mechanical components are truly what set the UGears model ship apart from others.
Connecting the stern master wheel and the ship’s pontoons, sturdy ropes help to steer the trimaran with the rear rudder blade. Either take in both the mast’s fore staysail and mainsail or let them out for a look that conveys the sailboat is ready for a day of adventuring at sea. A simple pull of a lever operates the ship’s sail booms. The boat’s rigging is comprised of a thin, but strong, threading in white that keeps the look of the model clean and free of unnecessary distractions.
The Trimaran Merihobus allows you to put your own stamp of creativity on your project as the finishing touch is a flag you can design yourself; it’s simple when you use one of the included templates. The ship’s hoists and winch allow you to raise your vessel’s flag and prepare it for adventure.
