#1213 American Enterprise
From Halter Marine comes an experimental craft for the hard working commuter. The American Enterprise was a trial balloon constructed for carrying crews and supplies to and from off shore oil drilling rigs. The goal of the Enterprise was to get there and back in a hurry regardless of the weather conditions. To accomplish this task she was equipped with a high speed 24 in. water jet powered by a gas turbine. When they were feeling a bit more leisurely they switched to the 16 in. water jets powered by the two Detroit Diesels. Here is your chance to own a crew ship of your own. This all wood kit is engineered out of top grade birch and poplar plywood, precision die-cut for an exacting fit. A 27 piece cast fittings set is included, as well as many other detail items. The Enterprise runs beautifully as a scale model with two Dumas #2004 or #2005 electric motors. But her sleek lines may make you want to push her to the limit. Perfectly suited for twin high speed electric or two gas engines.

A note about the discounted models or bargain boats. These are some of the older models in our line and as such the level of instruction is not the same as in our more recent models. These models are better suited to experienced builders who are comfortable building with less direction.
