Developed as a trawler fishing boat, the Boulogne Etaples original design can still be seen in many ports along the French Channel.
With a hull of steel, these stern trawlers would catch hauls of fish using nets and a tricing line at the rear of the boat. While you might not catch fish with your model, you will certainly catch people’s eye!
