Prototype history [click]
1950s Motor Cargo Vessel.
The motor vessel PATEKE was built by Scheepswerf Hoogezand N.V. of Holland in the 1950s for Richardson & Co Ltd of Napier, New Zealand. A typical dutch design of the period, PATEKA has a deadweight of 1,150tons. Her six cylinder 1,120bhp.Polar engine gave her a speed of 12knots and she was capable of carrying 80,000cu.ft. of grain. Cargo handling gear consists of nine derricks all operated by electric winches. PATEKA is altogether a trim and attractive little vessel representative of her period.
Our hull is well moulded and features the side rubbing strakes, port holes, panama ports, anchor hawse pipes, wash ports and waterline all moulded in, this detailled hull has plenty of room for electric or steam power plant all with R/C. control. Access into the hull is excellent via the forward hatches and large removable rear superstructure. The full-size plans by Nexus are excellent and allow for a nicely detailed model to be built, being such a pretty boat she makes for an excellent model that looks really good on the water and is quite capable of taking heavy weather, construction is straight forward and ideal for either the first time modeller or experienced builder.
