Model Boats With A Purpose

A Silvers Half Model

McGruers had many half models in the design office mainly of 6m and 8m racing yachts but when I went to work up the road at the old Silvers yard, it was known as D.M. Russell Marine and all of the old models had gone. I was however handed this rather damaged and derelict half model of a motor launch – whether it was a John Bain design or not, I am not sure but it does have the lines of a very handsome hull with lovely sheer and tumblehome in the aft sections.
