  • The Krick Model of the Gulnara is a perfect example of the transition from sail to steam, making this model an interesting and unusual subject

  • She was bought by the Sardinian Navy for escort and mail duties
  • The Gulnara was fitted with an oscillating steam engine made by the company Fawcett & Preston, Liverpool
  • When under sail, a section of the paddles could be folded back to reduce resistance
