Product Story

Modeled after the schooners that compete in the prestigious America's Cup, this authentically detailed remote-controlled yacht assembles in less than 15 minutes and courses through water like a full-scale racing yacht in winds up to 20 knots. The streamlined, composite hull produces minimal drag, allowing the yacht to make headway while piercing waves at speeds up to 6 knots. The carbon-fiber main mast and tear-resistant Mylar sails withstand wind gusts up to 23 mph, while the authentic rigging scheme and fully-proportional, metal-geared sail winch servo allow trim changes of sail for close reach, broad reach, or running with the wind. The keel and the deep-water rudder ensure pre cisely controlled headings during voyages, the keel lead's plastic covering protects the instrument from contact with underwater debris, and the on-board radio compartment has a watertight, double seal. The keel, mast, rudder, and rigging remove for ease of travel, the dual-channel remote allows for races with another yacht, and the remote has a range of 1,500 feet. Includes wooden boat stand. Yacht requires four AA alkaline batteries and remote requires eight AA alkaline batteries. For ages 14 and up. Minor assembly required. The manufacturer has confirmed that this item meets U.S. Federal toy safety standards for lead. 65 1/2" H x 8" W x 32" L. (5 1/2 lbs.)
