I personally designed Sharmari
(after the names of my two beloved children :Charles and Marie)
Therefore you'll never see her sailing on any ocean of the world!
It was also my first cardboard made model.
Turning a piece of cardboard into an actual floating boat was a very attractive challenge to me. Moreover, cardboard is lighter, cheaper and easier to work with than wood.

Scale: 1/10 radiocontrolled model
