The bench model Trimaran is a classic multihull sailboat 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 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 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.
