Volantex Hurricane 1m Sailboat Ready to Run

Perfect for beginners, 1M class competition skippers and everything in between, the Hurricane yacht is eminently adaptable. Made from durable blow-moulded ABS for added strength, the boat's hull features an attractive pre-applied scheme, which extends to the sail, giving it the pleasingly authentic look of a full-size racer. It also comes pre-assembled and partially pre-rigged to help you get sailing as soon as possible. Of a size that can comfortably be transported in most family cars, the Hurricane is an ideal grab-and-go pond partner with a silky-smooth, locked-in feel and an ability to sail beautifully close to the wind. Mind you, the joy starts early with this yacht as everything you need to get started is in the box, including a 2.4GHz radio system, a powerful drum-style winch servo and tough Mylar sails that provide outstanding durability and superb performance. Most of us have access to local water and with the Hurricane it needn't be a large expanse. A good pond will do the trick and if you're new to the hobby, rest assured, this delightful yacht will teach you almost everything you need to know.
