Riviera Motor Boat Kit 400mm Laser Cut WBC1000


Based on a classic open cockpit 4-seater the Riviera is a design that epitomises a classic wooden runabout of the 1930s and ‘40s. It drives well in most conditions, excels in calmer water and looks very much the part, displacing a satisfying bow wave and leaving a tidy wake.

The Wooden Model Boat Company prides itself on producing traditional model boat kits that build quickly and accurately into delightful semi-scale replicas, each as happy cruising on the lake as it is adorning the mantelpiece at home. Using precise laser-cut balsa and ply parts, coupled with a semi self-jigging / interlocking hull frame and easy to follow step-by-step instructions, success is practically guaranteed. Whether you plan to build the Riviera for two-channel radio control or static display the process is very similar as are the rewards.
