Time to weigh anchor and go full speed ahead towards new discoveries with Ugears nautical model, the Research Vessel.

Inspired by classic scientific documentaries and biographies of outstanding marine explorers, the Research Vessel is the incarnate might and beauty of large modern icebreakers and survey boats.

Your new boat has all you need to implement proper research: a bathyscaphe for deep-sea exploration, a small motor-boat and a life boat, drop ramp, opening hold hatch, and other fun and interesting elements you find in real-life vessels. The model is equipped with a swing jib crane to manage cargo and hoist out the bathyscaphe. Use the crane to pull the bathyscaphe out of the depths and secure it on a special extension platform.

All details of the Research Vessel are made of high-grade eco-friendly wood that need no glue or additional instruments to assemble. The “skeleton” design of the Vessel’s body allows you to look into the hold and engine room and see what makes her move. The energy driving the model is produced by a rubber-band motor and managed by a pendulum. A clever gear arrangement in this block imitates the sound of a diesel engine and provides a smooth and steady pace of the Vessel. The model has three movement modes – forward, turn, and automatic manoeuvring. The modes are controlled with a lever you can switch manually.

Feel the salty wind sailing you towards future discoveries with the Research Vessel from Ugears!

Best Yet!

This is the seventh UGear kit I’ve bought and put together and it's by far the best one yet! Lots of interesting details to it including several moving features. Details such as the individual ring buoys were great. You know it’s a good, fun project when you’re disappointed finishing it. The brains behind UGears have really set themselves a big challenge to out do this. I can hardly wait to see what’s next!
