The length indicates a Marblehead, which is really a race boat. The presence of handrails and the deck hatches and cockpit says otherwise. As does the combination of a pond yacht fin with a spade rudder separated by a distance from the fin.
Over the years 'I've seen a few yacht hulls in shop windows. The trade of the shop never had anything to do with yachts, real or model, and if rigged, never looked like they could work. But they were eye catching. This one might have had a similar original intention.
Real Club Nautico Gandia might have been having a reception area clear-out.

Hi Malcolm. I think you are right it’s far to light to sail, still because of you guys I have learnt so much and hope I wouldn’t make the same mistakes again it has also renewed my interest in boat model making and I am looking for my next project thank you. Ian

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
Colin Bishop - Website Editor
