The Motor Fifie 'Amaranth' was built originally as a Sailing Herring Drifter. However, due to the expansion of the Steam powered fishing fleet, Fifie owners fitted these boats with small oil powered motors to enable them to compete. Fifie's were popular and very successful fishing boats. They continued to be built until the early thirties and were still earning money for their owners two decades later.

This kit is based on a one piece ABS vac formed hull. CNC cut ply parts make the kit an ideal introduction to the world of marine modelling. As well as cast white metal fittings the kit is supplied with a motor mount, propshaft and propeller, vac formed lifeboat and a pre-stitched sail.

The model is designed to take Radio Control equipment or can be built just for static display.

The kit has now been updated to include brass stanchions, brass portholes, resin cowl ventilators etc.
