SUMMARY

Classic 3-pointer Hydroplane often to be seen racing post-war in and around North Norfolk.

DESCRIPTION

  • Commissioned post-war and believed to one of six produced from an original set of Ventnor drawings
  • Found in barn find condition in the 1990s as a complete but unfinished hull before being rebuilt by East Anglian Hydroplane expert Nigel Ringwood
  • A build thought to exceed 1,600 hours and a credit to the craftsmen concerned
  • Motivation now comes from a Wartburg triple-carburettor, three-cylinder engine
  • The traditional woodwork is now superbly detailed and has recently been refinished
  • Having not run in recent times, an element of recommissioning is to be expected
  • With the purpose-built trailer, it's ideal for classic events in Europe or Classic Motor Boat Association gatherings, on or off the water
