STEAM LAUNCH “TWILIGHT” FOR SALE

Reluctantly, due to ongoing health issues, I am offering the model steam launch “Twilight” for sale.
Twilight is a model of a German River Launch, crafted by Bob Moore, who built her over approx. 600 hours.
Some of her features are;
  • Hull is timber and fibreglass, powered by a 2 cylinder steam engine with boiler, P5 Automatic Boiler Regulator and cylinder oil lubricator.
  • The boiler runs on butane, a full tank lasts about 20+ minutes, and has a Whale Oil Steam injector, also a steam and electric Steam whistle. It has a Header tank and an Electric demand feed water pump.
  • The electrics comprise a FlySky FS-i6 radio transmitter, a 3 cell LIPO battery, a FS receiver and ancillary switches etc.
  • Lots of spare bits and pieces, also a transport cradle and a launching trolley etc.
  • There is an operations manual for running and maintenance of Twilight.
  • The launch has a length of 1450mm and a beam of 300mm. Weight with ballast is 14.2Kg.
The total cost of the machinery was over $2,200
Asking price is $1,500
