Zodiac was also produced from 1960. Similar to the Meteor it too was produced from plastic with a wood deck. Zodiac unlike Metoer was powered by an electric motor making it slightly more expensive.



Minx produced from 1960 was similar to Meteor. It was smaller than Metoer and the wood deck was replaced by a plastic one which was to be painted red. It too is a scarce boat.
