The US-12 R/C Sailboat
A beautiful full keel model yacht similar to an old America's cup 12 meter design
The US12 radio control model yacht is 46 inches in length with an 8
inch draft and a 16
pound minimum weight. Its size makes the boat easy to
transport in a car and a nice size to handle. The boat carries a rig of 714 sq. inches of sail
area with a 55 inch hoist.
She is a great sailing yacht, goes to weather with neutral helm and will track the length of the pond. It handles wind of 15 knots well before the need to use the "B" rig. The Soling 1M rig is acceptable for use as a "B" rig.We offer everything from a bare fiberglass hull to a complete kit which provides all of the components, except for electronics and glue, to assemble a ready to race boat.
