Interesting Boats  Truscott 30 Electric Launch "Maria"

At Right above:  The original "Truscott Thirty" built around 1900 in poor shape, but with lines true enough to be able to use her as the male mold for the Truscott 30 hulls. 
At Right Below:  The hull of the Electric Launch "Maria" fresh out of the mold.  One can see the beautiful lines that have made her popular.

At Left:  The inlaid deck, Teak and Holly sole, interior ceiling and seat fronts dress up its fine appearance.  Batteries are located beneath he seats.  The motor/gearbox unit is hidden beneath the after sole, and is almost unheard.

Above Left and right:  The bow and stern of the Truscott 30 hull exemplify the classic  lines of a fine launch that is easily driven and takes well to the seas.  Her tandem galvanized steel trailer is capable of simple local trips to nearby waters or a cross country jaunt to explore remote lakes and rivers or for initial delivery to her new home.

Above and Left: The interior of the cockpit emits an ambience of luxury and tradition.  From the wooden spoked steering wheel to the hand sanded and varnished mahogany combing, quality is apparent.  The cockpit sole has a number of hatches for easy access to the bilge.  There is ample storage under both the fore and aft decks.

Right:  Highly polished bronze and brass railings fore and aft not only keep people and ropes on deck, but add to the boat's looks.  The real mahogany deck planking with  covering boards extending the entire perimeter of the boat provide an appearance that is both beautiful and rare.  The Truscott 30 stands out from all other electric boats built.
