I have a Robbe Smaragd Yacht. 1/10 scale. This is quite old now and could do with a ‘make over’.

I would like to see some plans or instructions from the build before I start and would therefore be grateful if anyone with knowledge of this model or better still, copies of any paperwork that came with the kit contacted me.

A few pics attached of this very ‘forgiving’ yacht............

All the best.

Hi Neil,
Brian Roberts did a makeover article for the 'Emerald' in Model Boats mag a year or so ago which might help you -

Afraid the only docs (pdfs) I have are in the original German🤔
Cheers Doug 😎

What are you trying to do to me....................That is a life's work!

I have enough issues with the Tug and I thought that was going to be straight forward!

What MYA 'class' does the yacht fit in?

Hi Neil, Well you wanted info!! 😉 I have a digital subscription to Model Boats and remembered seeing the article. I don't build yachts but can still admire the craftsmanship and techniques used. Some come in handy for other projects, e.g. winches.
No idea about MYA classes, I'm not a yachter! Dave_M most likely knows.
Happy over-making, cheers Doug 😎

I am no expert on MYA but I suspect it doesn't fit into any class.
it's a great scale model and sails well but those two assets don't normally go well with racing yachts.
If you do wish to enter into this very competitive part of model yachting I suggest you find a local club who race under MYA rules and see what is required.
I'd still restore your yacht as they are great fun to sail


Live long and prosper

Help.............No no no, I do not want to get into competitive sailing. I just wondered how/why most/many people have numbers on their sails and I thought registering the boat was why.

As my wife says, I should not think, it only causes trouble.

Got enough on with the Tug!

All the best to all.

Hi Neil, your yacht still looks pretty tidy to my 'untutored' eye!
So if it ain't broke ....!
Suppose you could invent your own fictional pennant number if you wish.
As you say, there's enough going on with the tug upgrade - which also wasn't broke! 😉 Or was it?
Cheers Doug 😎
