Picket boats like the model we now have in stock were a type of small naval craft. Used for harbour patrols and other close inshore work, they were often carried by larger warships as ship's boats. Typically the Royal navy ones ranged in size between 30 and 55 feet with the main armament being a 3 pounder. Some saw action in WW1 and a few even in WW2.
Our wonderful new Picket boat model we think is from around the 1920’s. It is beautifully detailed and comes with its own case with plaque that reads Model of a Picket Boat R.N. The materials used include wood and brass. The details are amazing and the build is museum quality.
