Bob Kyle 49' Grand Banks Classic Yacht RC Model

Built by master modeler Bob Kyle of Captainís Models, who was the licensed official model builder for all of the major yacht manufacturers. This is a very rare museum quality model and is an exact reproduction of the actual Grand Banks 49í Classic yacht.

The reason why this model is so rare, it has a fully detailed and lighted interior, with teak floors, mahogany paneling, built in furniture, hand rails on the ceiling and an actual working starboard side door to access the deck.

It has working full function Radio Control; proportional forward/reverse/turning with twin propellers and rudders, and all working navigation lights.

It replicates the same fiberglass, teak and mahogany construction as was done with the actual yacht; the all teak swim platform at the stern is an intricate work of art.
This model is heavy, approximately 50 pounds and is 43 inches long, 12.5 inches wide and 24 inches high. It comes with its own large wooden shipping crate. This model is in Florida.

Asking Price: $13,500
(Shipping cost not included)

Bob Kyle was the best, but this model looks like the best got better. He built a one-off KK Manatee that I was fortunate enough to own for a few days. Yours is an outstanding example.

New Price updated on eBay: $12,650!

Thanks! This RC model is now listed on eBay for $12,650. This model was built with a special request of the interior being seen and a working door.

It took Bob Kyle about 1 year to finish and the remote controller is a newly upgraded one.
