Hi Roya,
The only cruiser is a sailing cruiser.
Try these people.

Dear Richard

All my model boats are made from wood.  The last one was a French fishing trawler, strangely enough, bought at the Fishing Musuem in Esberg.  It took me over a year to make as most of the hull planking had to be steamed and bent into position.  Quite a challenge.  (So I can quite see where fibre glass comes from.)

Way back in the 60's - 70's Kielcraft used to market a lovely kit of a Broads Cruiser.  I just kick myself for not buying one then (with great respects to Poppy I do not really understand yachts so perhaps one day one of you intrepid yachtsmen - women can invite us for a day so I can see how windpower works.)  I'm good with powered boats, but that't it.

Sorry, back to discussion.

Well Richard, if you can find someone who has got a model kit not started / started that I can finish, that would be great.

'Cause winter's coming and I like to disappear up to my fully fitted shed / workshop and do something useful like building model boats.

All the best

Roya and mrs Roya

Roya.. Good luck with your search mate, I would LOVE to have a model of our own boat built. I saw a guy on TV the other day that had had a scale model of his narrow boat built and it was fantastic! They asked him how much it cost and all he replied was " I have had to increase my insurance as the model is kept onboard!" :-O

Thinking of the Keil Craft kits, the nearest I can think of is the various kits for the Fairy Huntsman boats ('From Russia With Love')..
There's a lot of talk about them on the forum at http://www.modelboats.co.uk/ .
They are/were a standard wooden kit by Ripmax (if they still exist)....

The previously mentioned ModelYachtDesign are developing a 42ft Broads cruiser at the moment and have pictures of it etc. at http://www.modelyachtdesign.co.uk/Islander%20New.htm
(I have to admit, it wasn't too apparent that they did have anything other than yachts from their home page).

It looks pretty accurate, as they have been consulting with the Museum of the Braods at Stalham...
