The Konsul John was built for the DGzRS in 1929. About 13 meters in length and with a displacement of 18 tons she was equipped with a 50 hp motor and auxiliary sails. Little is known about the history of the boat, the archives of the DGzRS have been lost in the havock brought by the last great war. Only two known photographs exist and a simple plan can be bought at the online shop of the DGzRS.

Built in the scale of 1/20 the model has a decent size. The hull was made of grp, moulded over a plug of styrofoam.
