This is my vintage 1/10th scale NIB Graupner 'PORTOFINO' r/c yacht that I purchased from Feebay in June 2019 for an incredible $139.50 USD. It is one of the rarest r/c yachts in my collection and had been on my wish list for many years because I loved the twin surface drives on the original kit (as opposed to the single drive on the Portofino II) but I never thought I'd find a NIB version let alone one for such a reasonable price. In typical Graupner fashion, this is a high quality kit that requires assembly and finding the twin drive units/motors which is no easy task so I'm still looking for them. The most impressive aspect of this kit is the huge, detailed instruction manual and assembly sheets that came with this model. I have never seen anything like it before in another kit. It's missing the stripe decals so I may have to get creative with it and if I can find the correct surface drives I might build this one day. Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy.
