    I had previously posted this catalogue of Trojan Boats from 1967 on here 5 years ago, but the photos were posted in Photobucket here -
    Trojan wood motor cruiser range - 1967 catalogue https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/trojan-wood-motor-cruiser-range-1967-catalogue.51100/#post-699426
    And Photobucket are now demanding lots of money in exchange for unblurring my photos :(
    This original thread appears to be too old to edit now, and I refuse to pay them money to un-blurr the photos, so I thought I would re-post this catalogue here as attachments instead.

    The first 15 pages are shown below - seems like 15 attachments is my limit, so the remaining 7 will follow.

    And here are the final 7 pages - there should have been one more, for the 36' and 38' boats, but that page had been torn out sadly and is missing.

    Wow. Does that bring back memories. When I was a teenager I loved their boats. I even had a little electric powered model of one of their express cruisers. I think their designs are still really beautiful. They look so much better then the more modern euro styled plastic bubble boats popular today. Thanks for posting this. I too gave up on Photobucket. I now host my photos on my own on-line storage that I get with my web site. I'm paying for the web site so I might as well use the storage that comes with it.

    I remember I salvaged this catalogue (along with the Lyman catalogue that I also posted) out of a rubbish bin about 45 years ago - the bin belonged to a friend of my Dad who had been in the market for purchasing a boat in the late 60's.
    He ended up buying a 26' fibreglass Pacemaker Alglas sportsfisherman - maybe this was for the better (re maintenance) but the Trojans were much prettier, definitely.
    And Ike I agree absolutely that boats like these are timeless re their classic styling, and light years better than the modern eurostyle bubbles which all look very similar.
    Re your model of a Trojan express cruiser, I found these folk selling 1:12 scale kits for the F 31 -

    Although the F 31 was one of their early fibreglass models, rather than timber.
    Was your model similar to this one in the video?

    Yes but it didn't have the fly bridge, just the cabin.
