CERVIA "TUG" 54" (4.5 foot long) - Posted: 29th Sep 2017
Another boat my Dad started.
A large fibre glass hull of the tug 'Cervia'. I would be interested if anyone has any information about the hull producer. I know it was purchased from Pontins model makers festival, Brean Sands from back in the day more than 35 years ago.

It was to be petrol/ electric and he spend 9 years making a
4 cylinder 4 stroke 'Sealion' engine from scratch to power it, along with some windscreen motors from a Land rover.

I've attached some pictures and work could continue if I find the will, after the huntsman is complete.

Thanks for the info upon finding the plans in a tube, I came across some old colour slides of the finished model at Pontin's model makers festival. This was me aged 5 so some 40 years ago and I guess the hull in the background became ours. Undecided if it will even fit in the car alone being able to get it in the water if I finish it after the huntsman.

Hi Mate, if you have found the plans, have a close look the designer usually put there name and or company, that info may help to ID the manufacturer and any possible remaining links through the website

Mark it's a Vic Smeed plan. Beautifully constructed model and designed by one of the greats.
