Ferry Glansteffan. Scale model of the Llansteffan to Ferryside Ferry with sea/land options
The Llansteffan to Ferryside ferry, 'Glansteffan' is a high performance aluminium-hulled boat, fitted with a 'Sealegs® Amphibious Enablement System' which allows it to drive out of the water onto land.
On the water, it is driven by twin 115 horse-power Yamaha outboard engines - can power her to a top speed of 30 knots.
On land, the boat is driven by three deployable wheels, rather like an aircraft undercarriage. All three wheels are fitted with hydraulic motors and the front wheel is steerable.
The boat seats 10 passengers, and up to 4 bikes or two wheel-chairs. Weather protection is provided by a well-designed canvas canopy, fitted with large sight panels.
We have been commissioned by the Ferry company to design, make and market the model of this fantastic little craft. readily available in 'OO' & 'O'gauges, and 1/25 for garden railways, however, other scales can be produced by request. Our model comes with a split hull so that it can be depicted in or out of the water. This model is only available through us or from the operators, Carmarthen bay Ferries
