This is a website all about radio-controlled Fast Electric Model Powerboats. If this is a subject that interests you, then stick around: you've come to the right place!
The term "fast electric" is a relic of the days when electric powerboats were anything but "fast". Today, the situation is very different. Modern motors and cell technology allow power outputs and speeds unthinkable to the average boat modeller five or ten years ago. The fastest radio controlled model powerboat in the world is a 32 cell electric hydroplane which currently holds a speed record in excess of 140 miles per hour.
Below are some pictures of an outrigger hydroplane I've built for racing in Hydro 1 in 2009 with SWAMBC.
Some pictures of a Hydro 1 class outrigger I built for Ian Barber. Similar size and design to the yellow boat above.
