MEET THE TUG BOAT SANSON TO BUILD THE WOODEN MODEL
Discover the Sanson wooden model, a beautiful tug boat of the 30s. Equipped with a powerful steam boiler of 2,000 CV of power, the ship could go with speeds of 14 knots while it went to the rescue of ships of much greater wingspan.
In the mid-nineteenth century, navigation experienced a great revolution, the main factor of which was the introduction of mechanical propulsion. As a consequence ships gradually increase their size and displacement, losing in the process ease to maneuver in docks and ports.
As a result of this, tugboats are born, new types of small-tonnage vessels with low draft but with motive power and manoeuvrability more than enough to assist ships much larger than themselves. Now you have your fabulous model to build it in your own house.
