Rc marblehead sail boat, 50/800 class, rare, fast. $450.00 PICTURES NOW SHOWN


Marblehead class sail boat. The deck is a classic mahogany and the hull is fiberglass. No dings or scratches. Mast and booms are wood, rigging is wire. Sails in great shape, stitching is all good, no rips or tears. Keel and ballast fine shape. I got this from the original owner, and it has been stored carefully.. He said it was made in the England in the early 70s. Boats like this, classic but in great shape, are rare to find. Don't miss out.

As for electronics, the servos worked the last time I sailed her, but that was about 20 years ago. You will need a receiver. Minor repair needed on rigging wire, easy to do, and I will send the part plus instructions. Just haven't had time.

The boat has been well cared for, but polishing her up should deepen the wood color. Sorry about the pics- very bright day with glare.

Exact Dimensions:

Length: 49.75”
Mast height: 85”
Beam: 11”
keel: 14.5”
Hull: 5.5”

This sail boat is fast, fun to sail and a beauty on the water. Email or call if you have any questions, or would like more pictures.

Note: Sorry shipping is so high, but it’s long, large and fairly heavy, and I must ship the mast in a long tube. That being said, if the cost is less I will certainly reimburse. Stand included.
