The UGears Trimaran Merihobus is a classic multihull sailboat designed in the skeleton style to show off a lot of details such as bulkheads, frames, rigging, and hulls, which makes her a very realistic miniature copy of real-life prototypes.
The sailboat is made in style to ensure good visibility of the mechanism and the design of the sailboat, including such details as bulkheads, frames and beams. The rear rudder blade is steered by the ropes connected through the pontoons to the master wheel on the stern.
Just like on real trimarans this UGears mainsail and fore staysail on the mast can be set or taken in. The mainsail of the Trimaran Merihobus is set on the mast groove with the main top halyard. The staysail “rolls up” on a stay. At the front under the bowsprit, you will find the staysail’s winch drum. Sail booms are operated by a lever that pulls the sheet of the boom.
The model allows you to create your own flag design for the ship. it comes with several templates and with the aid of the winch and hoists, you can ensign your ship.
The Trimaran Merihobus uses a strong but thin white thread for its rigging. This ensures the structure of the boat remains neat and light even with a lot of details while making the mast and other elements remain in perfect positions.
The UGears Trimaran Merihobus has a lovely finishing touch in the form of a tiny seahorse carved in the bow of the boat. The curious sea creature also known as the merihobus gave your boat her name.
The Ugears Trimaran Merihobus model kit is made of sustainably sourced high-grade wood and has everything you might need for assembly. The high-grade plywood is cut into different templates by a laser method providing precise hairline cuts. The templates are marked by colors, and there is a truly easy to follow instructions. Assembling requires neither glue nor special tools to turn the boat into a functional sailboat.
