    USS Des Moines complete ship for sale. Last used at NATs 2013. All systems work and were recently tested. Pictures of the inside of the ship should be attached. Also has 6 batteries and 2 chargers. Ship has back up speed controllers for the ship and pump.

    Bottle and Palmer "rock the boat" regulator included.

    Also available is a Futaba 6 channel radio with 2 receivers.

    Complete ship minus receiver $500.00 plus shipping.
    Complete ship with radio and extra receiver $600.00 plus shipping.

    I will throw in the batteries and chargers if desired.

    This is maybe the best Des Moines class in action I have seen. I spend NATS “counting” Johns ship. 0-0-0 every battle. I think he had to patch after cruiser battle. That was about all the damage he took and gave out a lot more with his trips. It’s a good deal pick it up.

    It is a good ship and needs a good home. Unfortunately I have reached the point in life where battles are too far away and I try and spend more time with the grandkids. I do miss the hobby and friends though.

    You can always fly in and borrow a boat John. Don't be a stranger, life is short!

    Hi John....late to the party but I'm a former Captain of the USS Augusta and a convoy ship named Algol.
    I'm near Bob Pottle and I'm looking for a ship to love while I build up a Suffren.

    Is the Des Moines still in your shipyard? Thanks, mate. :)

    Yes it is still for sale and boxed up from a previous offer that was withdrawn due to family issues.

    H Mike,

    What is your address so I can get the shipping cost. I will need to send it in three boxes but might be able to send the radio and batteries in USPS Flat rate boxes.
    You can email me at jrbruder@comcast.net

    I bought it years ago and still have it. It is my backup boat.
