Product description : RC wooden boat model: Colin Archer RS1

Model wooden boat radio-controllable: Colin Archer scale 1/15 of the brand Billing Boats.

The RS1 was built in 1893 for the "Norwegian Society for Shipwreck Salvage" at the Colin Archer shipyard in Rekkevig near Larvik, Norway. The RS1 was then named "Colin Archer" in honor of its designer and builder. The sharp design of the ship gave it a worldwide fame. About 30 such boats were built, most at the Colin Archer shipyard in Tollerodden in Larvik.

The Colin Archer RS1 boat has had a checkered past. After 40 years as a salvage vessel, the ship was sold in 1933 to private owners, who added a small auxiliary engine. She crossed the Atlantic in 1938, suffered severe storm damage in North Carolina in October 1954, and was found as a wreck on the Potomac River in 1960. After 23 years in the United States, the Colin Archer was returned in Norway in December 1961. There followed a series of owners - and good and difficult times. Finally, on April 21, 1972, Norway's oldest rescue ship was handed over to the Norwegian Maritime Museum in Oslo. In 1973, responsibility for the ship was given to the Colin Archer Cutter Club, who have since completely restored the ship and sail it, in agreement with the Norwegian Maritime Museum, as a functional reminder of the past. Today, the Colin Archer is a welcome guest at vintage ship gatherings in Northern Europe.

The hull of this boat is made of wood.
