T47 Radio Controlled SchoonerTippecanoe Boats
The Tippecanoe Boats T47 Radio Controlled Fairharbor Schooner is designed after the ships that sailed the oceans many years ago. Its two-masted design carries four sails, twice the number of any of our other boats. The massive amount of sail area is offset by a deep keel fin and lead ballast weight, which also make this boat impossible to capsize. In a strong wind she sails beautifully and stays perfectly balanced. The classic mahogany plywood hull with cedar gunnel rails complements the traditional look of this beautiful 47 inch long and 4-foot-tall sailing boat.
Rig the boat up (usually a 2 minute job) and turn your radio controller on! The RC servo allows all sails to be adjusted together with just the flick of a finger. The wood hull is constructed of pre-cut 1/8 inch mahogany plywood pieces that go together very easily with a marine epoxy that is not only incredibly strong, but also remarkably easy to use. This sailboat carries all of the same elegance as the other models; its beauty and functionality will last for years.
The T47 is available as both a kit or a finished boat, both come with all of the Radio Control equipment included (except for batteries). The finished boat comes fully completed and ready to sail. Kits come with everything you will need to build the boat, including the marine epoxy and all of the RC gear for sailing the boat. In fact, all you need is paint or varnish and AA batteries! For assembly, we recommend ages 15 and up, or 12 and up with an adult. For sailing, we suggest ages 8 through adult.

- Hull and deck pieces pre-cut from 1/8 inch mahogany plywood
