Southport Model Boats


The Club was formed in 1978, when several model boaters, who used the Marine Lake at Southport, thought it would be a good idea.

Here we are 30 years later and going from strength to strength.

We meet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

In 2003 we moved to a new purpose built pond – “Jubilee Pond” – it was built during the Clubs Silver Jubilee.

We have a great sailing pond with a Member’s car park and toilet facility.

We share the area with Southport Model Engineers Club, they have an existing clubhouse and raised track loop for steam engines.
As part of the new development, a new track bed has been added alongside the pond, looping around at the head of the pond and returning to their Clubhouse.

The pond is open for public use, as the Club felt that it should be available to everyone, not just SMBC members.

We do ask any visitors to use our frequency peg system, for everyone’s safety, if you intend to use steam power you need a current boiler test certificate (we can help with this).

Electric and steam models are operated; however IC engines are not permitted.
