The MRP Archive

In tribute to MRP (Model Racing Products), this page list the know boat kits. With the help of new information from co founders Bob Welch, Marvin Lew and advide collector James Alguire we have recently been able to add a page of MRP's history,  a list of MRP Cars and a Catalogs page.
MRP was originally based out of Kirkland, WA and with partner company Jerobee made R/C cars around 1970. Later MRP added boats and moved to Woodinville WA. For a more complete history see the account from co-founder Marvin Lew.
Most of their boats were vacuum formed hulls, light and a favorite among model boaters. They were part of my own inspiration. I have collected some information about the boats MRP manufactured and provided it here. If you have additional information ( like a catalog) or would like to add to the information here please feel free to Contact Us. MRP was last known to be purchased by ACE Hobby Distributors in Irvine, CA some time around 2006. It was shortly after 2006 when the boats, cars and parts stopped being available. Today the kits have become rare and hard to find. Occasional they come up for auction on and often fetch high prices.
