Also, surprisingly, it does not take on much water, even with fairly rough use. Highly recommended for gentler weather than we get in the Rocky Mountains! As good a micro yacht as you might hope to find.
I just took this out of the package, put in some batteries and I was good to go. What is nice is that it is small enough to sail around in my complex's pool. It has a little light inside the boat when it is on, which makes it glow at night when you are sailing around. I go down to the pool at night when no one is swimming, have some wine, and sail around.
The rudder and the sail have nice analog controls, allowing for precision steering, and all of the stuff I learned in my sailing class was easily practiced with this boat.
BELOW WAS INITIAL REVIEW:
This was purchased for my daughters 9th birthday. We have an 18ft x 20ft pond and are using it in there. The controls are a little complicated for my daughter and she would prefer something faster but her dad is having a blast with it. They have been bonding more lately while going out to sail it.
The boat is made well and came fully assembled. I think the price is excellent compared to the amount other companies charge for ones you have to struggle with attaching sails, etc. When the boat isn't being used it sits on its stand and could pass perfectly as a collectible boat. Very detailed and nice to look at.
The only downside I've noticed thus far is the difficulty drying it out after use. Everything's glued or screwed in place inside and there's not an obvious access to the bilges. I've found hanging it upside down with the batteries removed and the hatch cover open works about as well as anything thus far. A cup hook with a string on it is strong enough to suspend this boat inverted from a high place, loop of string around the keel.
And the boat is a bit awkward finding a place to store it out of the way, so hanging it upside down might be the best of all worlds.
Don't sail it out too far, I'd say again. Trying to figure out how to sail it back to you when you can't see which direction it's pointed is a challenge.
