Carried by the wayward wind of travel, the graceful and stylish Trimaran Merihobus from Ugears invites you to leave your peaceful harbour and sail away on an exciting marine mechanical adventure. The new mechanical bench model kit is designed to show off a great deal of details such as winches, rigging, and hulls, which makes her a very realistic miniature copy of real-life prototypes. The kit has everything you might need for assembly (including winches, rigging and hulls) and requires neither glue nor special tools to be fully assembled into functional working classic
The body of the sailboat is made in the “skeleton” 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. The hydrofins on the side of the pontoons make the model stable and steady while creating a visual effect of the elevation of the model. The side pontoons are attached to the main body with a load frame designed to match the style of the hulls. Also, they carry a boat davit mechanism with a winch.
The mainsail and fore staysail on the mast can be set or taken in, just like on real trimarans. The mainsail of the Trimaran Merihobus is set on the mast groove with the main top halliard. 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 comes with several templates for a flag of a ship. Create your own design and using the winch, hoist the ensign up the mast. The anchor cable winch based inside the Trimaran’s body has an automatic-tensioning mechanism that picks up an anchor. The Ugears’ designers used a strong but thin white thread for the rigging of the Merihobus. 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 their positions. And of course one mustn’t miss a lovely little finishing touch - a tiny seahorse carved
in the bow of the boat. The curious sea creature known also as the merihobus gave your boat her name.
