“THE VANADIUM 32” A NEW INBOARD SPEED DINGHY OF EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE.
NOT only was Miss Nina Mae McKinney impressed with the performance of the new ” Vanadium 32.” We were too. This 15 ft. craft is of extremely interesting design and construction. The hull follows the form of the usual speed dinghy while the engine (a Johnson 32 with electric starting) is mounted inboard, just in front of the transom, and the cavitation plate is used to form the watertight
joint. This method of installation gives the boat exceptional silence without detracting in any way from the snappy performance of the outboard engine.
All the controls are mounted beside the steering wheel, giving the craft exceptional ease of control. This craft has a top speed of about 37 m.p.h., and is remarkably seaworthy owing to the totally enclosed engine. The price is £79, which makes it by far
the cheapest inboard speed boat ever built either here or in any other country. And it does 37 m.p.h.
The Vanadium 32 can be seen and tried without obligation at Power Craft Services, The Dock, Eel Pie Island, Twickenham.
As usual, they will be pleased to answer any questions concerning this or other craft.
