All-wood kit of a classic fishing cutter. JULE is a typical fishing boat, as employed all along the North and Baltic sea coasts. The vessels were built from the early years of the twentieth century until the late 1960's. They were initially of timber construction, but also of steel from the 1950's, and this is the epoch from which our model comes. It features a hard-chine hull of all-wood construction. The navigation equipment and deck apparatus fitted to these cutters were continually updated over the years. For example, modern deck machinery is now employed for processing the catch. These fishing boats were designed to be operated all year round, and they could be used to fish for shrimps as well as cod and herring. A different type of handling equipment is used for each type of fish.

The kit contains an extensive German silver etched parts set, including items such as searchlights, riddle screen, boiler, sorting machine and much more.
