Humber 41' Motor Barge Model

This is a steel multi-chine motor barge for use in the waters of the UK and Europe, crossing the Channel and exploring the rivers and canals of the European mainland.

She has a section of parallel middle-body which means that she can be stretched although at 41' she has room for extensive accommodations in what would have been her hold area. She is a rugged ocean crosser.

Details of the full-size Humber 41 motor barge can be found on the Selway Fisher Design web site.
