"The model of the JULES VERNE was created in collaboration with the Dutch yacht designer Rene van der Velden.

This "retro design" motor yacht corresponds in shape and color to the typical mahogany wooden yachts of the 1930s and 1940s. At the JULES VERNE built in 1998, the design elements of the earlier yachts were optimally combined with those of the modern ones.

The result is one of the most elegant yachts in »retro design«. Since wooden hulls are no longer produced for cost reasons, the hull at JULES VERNE was made of aluminum and painted in mahogany brown.
With the two 660 hp drive motors, the yacht reaches a speed of approx. 26 kn.

The model of the JULES VERNE was developed according to the original documents of the designer in 1:20 scale. Since certain manual skills and experience in ship model building are required, the model is only recommended for experienced model builders.
All rounded parts are made of deep-drawn ABS and the hard-to-machine parts such as the fuselage, rear steps, deck and superstructure are already CNC machined (milled out). The wooden parts are pre-cut and thus shorten the construction time.

The hardware components are made of injection molded plastic, such as windshield wipers, fans, lamps and radar equipment
etc. already included. The lamp housings in the fitting set can be easily illuminated by means of miniature incandescent lamps Ø 2.4 mm. "

(Extract from the original description of the Graupner kit)

In particular, the driving operation on double supply voltage (in connection with a water cooling), complete nautical and additional switchable lighting, a rotatable radar device, a fully functional bow thruster with separate speed controller, elegant and extremely effective 3-blade brass propeller from Raboesch, in brass held portholes by Marinetic or underwater LED lighting mentioned.

After currently about 9 months of construction (depending on the desired expansion stage) in our model yard, you will also receive a cleanly built and painted, functional model with all the desired functions and components, tested and tested.
However, the different equipment variants and possible expansion stages usually make individual advice inevitable as part of this offer.
