Since I wrote a very long article just two days ago, I will now publish a very short one with a vehicle that has a lot in common with what I wrote about Guisval’s “Club” and “Junior” series.

These speedboats were manufactured around 1981 by Guisval, and came out in the just mentioned “Club” series. They were the perfect candidate for that series, since they are more plastic than metal, and might have been very cheap to produce.

The two pictures below are taken from (Seller: Humber)

This boat was never part of the “campeón” series, but it was sold together with some “campeón” models in double packs ("campeón autopista" series comprised cars with trailers), before 1981 (see pics above)

All the speedboats share exactly the same cast. Depending on the colours and the stickers, there are two models to be found:

Lancha Rescate: 
  • White with blue interior and red hull, “Rescate” stickers (at least 2 versions of stickers)
Lancha Competición: 
  • Yellow with red interior and blue hull “RN 42” stickers
  • White with blue interior and red hull, “RN 42” stickers (wrongly applied stickers, should have been a "rescue speedboat"??? )
  • Scale: Approx 1:64?
  • Year: 1981
  • Company: Guisval (Spain)
  • Size: approx. 6-7 cm
